Track by Track Review


The Return Of Ethel Merman dotdotdot
Surfabilly (Instrumental)

Psychobilly rave-up, with that typical rockabilly beat, and a very surfable guitar lead. Lots of power and speed, and more than just a hint of the raging surf. The thunder below and the shredding above speak clearly of fast short board action on storm surf.

Revenge Of El Trio Los Bastardos dotdotdot
Surfabilly (Instrumental)

Ringing surfabilly from the melodic side of the Meteors. "Revenge Of El Trio Los Bastardos" is a well phrased tune, with a friendly and memorable melody line. Quite tasty.
