Picks: Wipe Out, Pipeline
Track by Track Review
Garage Surf (Instrumental)
This is dissonant, almost out of tune, with edgy speedy guitar work, and muddy drums. Instead of mimicking the Ron Wilson drum solo, the drummer moves in different directions, and the guitarist fills with pick slides. Semi fuzzy, and definitely primitive.
Surfin' Dead Blues
More minimalist instro fair. Riff rock with surf in the title does not surf make. Dreadful production and barely more than meaningless writing.
This is a very grode version of "Pipeline." Swirling rapidly modulated guitar, melody errors, and punk energy. Not Moving likely take this surf classic from Johnny Thunders' cover rather than The Chantays' original. Obscure, fun, and dirty.
