MAD 3 - Green Hornet - A Tribute To Katodotdotdotdot
artworkSplendid noise from Japan's MAD 3, who owe more to Davie Allan and Link Wray than the surfbands, but sure do fit well between a couple of surf shredders!

Green Hornet dotdotdotdot
Surf Biker Fuzz (Instrumental)

Funny intro here... The track opens with bad MOR trumpet and screams of pain, then vinyl skipping across the record, and - WHAM - ripping Torpedoes-like delivery of super fast, shredding fuzzy guitar with excerpts of Flight Of The Bumble Bee. Pretty cool.

Too Cool To Die dotdotdot
Surf Biker Fuzz (Instrumental)

Loungy fuzz weirdness, quirky cool, harmonics, and major guitar noise. Mid tempo cool-for-cats strangeness throughout.
