The Neptunas - Surfatoriumdotdotdot
artworkMy favorite women of the waves, the wonderful Neptunas. Three of the nicest surfettes ever! Pamita Neptuna, Leslita Neptuna, and Toastita Neptuna are delightful to work with, and they enjoy their music playing immensely. Their joy at playing transcends any technical weaknesses. The Ultra's Vanilla Sludge calls them "the best band in years" and the Halibuts' Pete Curry says "their the most authentic surf band he's ever seen, right down to just barely being able to play their instruments." Primal, unpretentious playing, and pure fun. At this early stage, the girls were playing tentatively, but their joy has always shows through. This is not virtuoso surf. It is pure high school band realism.

Track by Track Review


Surfatorium dotdotdot
Surf Garage (Instrumental)

Rhythmic, off-time surf chord chunk. Infectious and made to be loved.

Kelp Kreature dotdotdot
Surf Garage (Instrumental)

This fine tune, is written most unusually, with odd progressions, a halting delivery, and a special chord driven feel. It is magically infectious.

Fur Bikini dotdotdot
Surf Garage (Instrumental)

This minor key tune is a progression with no sense of time, but then it doesn't seem to matter. Tunafish on a wry sense of humor.
