Dave Myers and the Surftones - Gear c/w Let The Good Times Rolldotdotdotdotdot
artworkDave Myers and the Surftones' last surf single is simply one of the coolest instros ever released. The shear precision of the glissandos' meter is stunning. A must have. The b-side is a classic combo cover, which is reportedly like their live shows.

Surf (Instrumental)

This is my favorite Dave Myers and the Surftones track. It's unusual drum cadence and melody are brilliant and infectious, and this recording shows just how powerful really good meter is in a double picked guitar. Dick Dale says it is among the most important elements. The precision of the meter allows Dave to play slow dribbly glissandos that are simply gorgeous. A must-have track from 1964 on Wickwire.
