Mambo Chillum - S/Tdotdotdot
artworkMuch of this CD contains fifties jazz and blues covered with mondo bizarritude... a cross between serious and fun. Some harsh guitar work, some loungoid and almost Beefheart-ish vocal work, Mambo Chillum are like an inversion of Brazil 2001 or the Migs in John Mayall's garage. This release is most refreshing, even though it contains only one instro.

Post Surf Blues (Instrumental)

Evil screaming and gutty big twang guitar in a post-Link Wray era. In some ways, it's like Billy Childish in a raw blues barn with real mics. Big brash dark blues. This ain't no Jimmy Reed number, folks.
