Track by Track Review


Funky Fidel Pt 1 dotdotdotdot
Tribal Thunder (Instrumental)

Tribal rhythmic thunder, guttural wah wah guitar, whirling organ, and endless jungle ethics. This is a long way from the surf envelope, but so damn cool that it requires a listen. Great drums, and a lost continent approach to the seventies, as if you are the main course at a cannibal disco.

Funky Fidel Pt 2 dotdotdotdot
Tribal Thunder (Instrumental)

A continuation of this great track. Guitar tone in the bridge is as nasty as the lead in Muruga and UFM's "Gum Improvisation." The only real question is, what does this have to do with Fidel Castro?
