The Neptunas - Neptunas Sandwich - Live at Spaceland 2/14/02dotdotdot
artworkFrom below the brine, where Neptune's flock of Neptunas glide along the subterranean currents, comes the big thunder of grass skirts sandwiched between "two really good bands" like a "Neptunas Sandwich." From the shallows of their instrumental pool, they've moved into more the treacherous waters of garage vocals, with great material like "He's Waiting," "GTO Tiger," "Cinderella," and "The Witch." No matter how long they are together, they will always be the Neptunas, and that's a very good thing. I still dig these chicks the most!

Track by Track Review


The Shape of Things to Come dotdotdot
Garage Fuzz (Instrumental)

Fuzz box employed, the little ladies of the curl nasty up this Max Frost and the Troopers (Davie Allan and the Arrows) classico. Thumpin' turmoil transcends the calm, giving rise to a nasty trashy rendering of "The Shape of Things to Come."

Dig Thee Phantom 5ive dotdotdot
Surf (Instrumental)

Rippin' progressions and rhythmic fun abound as the dolphin free wigglers of the brine dedicate this track to Tennessee's rois du surf Thee Phantom 5ive. Fun and sun, warmth and carport froth.

Bikini Drag dotdotdot
Garage Fuzz (Instrumental)

This moderately obscure Pyramids tune works well under the spell of the fuzz pedal and the plunderous beat of the tunafishes of the sea. Just plain fun!
