|Two of the tracks on this CD are instros, and many of the vocals employ surf and spaghetti western elements in the arrangements. Quite excellent!|
Picks: 120, Aloha, Pancho
Track by Track Review
Surf Punk (Instrumental)
A car starts up and squeals off. The audio is not very good, with a thin distorted artificial sounding stereo sound, yet the punkoidal energy of the performance and thrash nature of the flying notes carries it off. "120" grows on you despite it all.
This is an engaging blend of spaghetti western's sweeping imagery and just a touch of an island breeze. The melody is very nice, and the delicately double picked guitar quite liquid. many changes and an evolving arrangement keep this "Aloha, Pancho" fresh throughout!
