artworkManuel and the Renegades second single is slower tempo in comparison to their first, but it certainly is great and vital.

Surf (Instrumental)

Tribal surf riffs simply rock. The band are hyped up, shouting and playing loud and hard. Like a surf R&B jam, "Woody Walk" is gutsy and tuff. Totally great track.

Surf (Instrumental)

Mean R&Based grodie surf from one of the great mystery bands of the LA scene. Tuff surf-n-soul for the graveyard surfer. This excellent 1963 track was the B-side to "Woody Wagon." I've only talked to one person who actually saw Manuel & the Renegades live, but many remember "Rev Up" thundering out of their car radio on KRLA and KFWB.
