Lombego Surfers - Full Tank Of Tikidotdotdot
artworkThe Lombego Surfers play a very aggressive brand of rock 'n' roll, with a thick guitar twang and lots of power. 1 in 4 tracks are instros with a cactus bent on surf and rock. Slightly similar to Robert Johnson and Punchdrunks instrumentally, but with their own character and edge. Rock solid.
Picks: Reverends Ride, Full Tank, Acceleration, Backfire, Slurp

Track by Track Review


Reverends Ride dotdotdotdot
Cowboy Surf (Instrumental)

Big twang guitar dramatically introduces "Reverends Ride." A big cowboy beat supports the cactus ride of the Lombego Surfers. Thick and sturdy, with a fluid melody line in a country surf vein.

Full Tank dotdotdot
Big Guitar Surf (Instrumental)

Twang and power chords mix it up in a thick melange of riffs and edge. The keyword is relentless as you explore the "Full Tank" that resides within. Very heavy in an almost 80's LA guitar band style, but with much more art and panache than that implies.

Acceleration dotdotdot
Big Guitar Surf (Instrumental)

A postmodern hotrod epic of road gobblin' and power chords. Fast and in your mug like Popeye on a shortboard at Sewer Peak.

Backfire dotdotdot
Big Guitar Rock (Instrumental)

Big guitar twang and slam, with a very heavy sound and a nasty edge. The galloping cowboy beat behind "Backfire"gives it an LA feel, like the Vandals or something.

Slurp dotdotdotdot
Big Guitar Rock (Instrumental)

This is a hidden track past the end of track 13 at about 3:07. Big and powerful, with solid drums and thick guitar edge. Moody in an angry way, with some fine guitar work and a relentless drive. The chunk is dramatic. It completely drains you.
