Picks: Kickstart, Headhunters Cove, Sausage Link, Indian Pipe, Waverunner, Mesquite
Track by Track Review
Big crunch, tuff drums, and grumbling bass. "Kickstart" is a solid riff rocker with intense energy.
Tropical Fuzz (Instrumental)
A great beat from the drums, flowing exotic island fuzz chords from the guitar, and a relentless low down thunder from the bass. "Headhunters Cove" is dangerous and fluid, with big sound and an ominous melody line. Thick and intensely commanding.
"Sausage Link" sizzles on a griddle of fuzz and intensity. Monster truck rock 'n' roll power with no remorse.
Dangerous Surf (Instrumental)
"Indian Pipe" is a slower song. It's no less intense, and it features song shallow whammy for extra crunch. Quite dangerous, with a huge edge, yet delicate with longs sustain. A marvelous track!
Surf Fuzz (Instrumental)
With the fuzz box strapped on tight, "Waverunner" travels the waves of danger. It's a powerful and intense track with a fine riff and excellent bass line.
Island Rock (Instrumental)
The chords almost ring through the fuzz. "Mesquite" transitions between punk and island shimmer, with its center being in the darkness of punk. Heavy and demanding. Not entirely instrumental, the Lombego Surfers launch into a verse of "Ring Of Fire" just before the end.
