Track by Track Review
This is one monster of a surf instro. Right from the tuff shouted intro "Rev Up" and screaming throaty engine, Manuel and the Renegades rock! Great surf guitar, monster tom toms, boss sax, and very high power. This single defines power, and it's infectious energy and guts are compelling. Totally great!
Single picked gutty surf riff stompin' groove... "Trans-Miss-Yen" is nasty and powerful in a tribal surf vein. Nasty sax breaks and great simple surf guitar!
