Phil Dirt - Reverb Central - PO Box 1609, Felton, CA 95018-1609 USA MAD 3 - Cosmo Tiger c/w Louie Louie
|OK, I'm a sucker for dark fuzz, and I'm a longtime fan and collector of all things "Louie Louie." This wonderful 45 is simply essential. No surf, but if you like Davie Allan or Motorhead or Chum, this will knock your socks off.|
Picks: Cosmo Tiger, Louie Louie

Surf Biker Fuzz (Instrumental)
Trembling fuzz backed by power drums and bass thunder to raise the dead with a Davie Allan-ish rocker. Big, powerful, short, and intense with grode energy. "Cosmo Tiger" is a monster on the loose. From a heavy power perspective, it reminds me of Motorhead at times.
Oh my gawd! My imagination was running amok with reality in anticipation of the destruction that MAD 3 might rain down on "Louie Louie." Then, as it unfolded, it was even more than I guessed. Totally powerful, all fuzzy and dark, with flying noodling notes and dangerous chords, it simply rules! And, at five minutes duration, you will not be left alive!
