Monster Zero - Sounds Of Psycho Surfdotdotdot
artworkThis young band from Long Beach has captured the essence of the Pyramids inverted. They have an effective and powerful garage approach to surf that compliments the inversion. Where the Pyramids were pristine, Monster Zero is grodie, restraint is replaced with abandon, and raw energy substituted for precision. This is a fine single from a promising trio.
Picks: El Diablo, Blood Bath At Disneyland, Bikini Drag

Track by Track Review


El Diablo dotdotdot
Garage Surf (Instrumental)

This is an intensely energetic track, with a melody that hints slightly at Shape Of Things To Come. It's powerful, melodic, and infectious. Solid power surf.

Blood Bath At Disneyland dotdotdot
Garage Surf (Instrumental)

Dramatic, thumpy low down evil lurks in the grooves of this track. It's dark and foreboding, and grodie enough to convey the horror of a Blood Bath At Disneyland. Lot's one power, and garage edge.

Bikini Drag dotdotdotdot
Garage Surf (Instrumental)

This cover of the Pyramids is garagie and fuzzy. The adaptability of this tune to this rendition shows it's power. Lots of energy and power, and solid rock attack. Covering a well known band is often a risk, but this not only works well, it is also in the family. After all, with the son of a Pyramid in the band, it's quite appropriate.
