Stampede dotdotdot
Surfabilly (Instrumental)

This is the rockabilly classic instro originally cut by the Scarlets. It's a rousing performance, of course, as there are no other kind that the Meteors can do. Hot rockin' fire.

Torture dotdotdotdot
Surfabilly (Instrumental)

This is a damn fine cover of the Fendermen's "Mule Skinner Blues" B-side. Monstrous edge and booming power, played with ample flair. Yikes!
