artworkThese are five tracks captured on the net by Perverso Cetaceos. Interestingly enough, the mono demos are much better than the later stereo tracks from a band chemistry perspective, and much more developed.

Track by Track Review


El Nino Que Se Llevo El Mar dotdotdot
Surf (Instrumental)

This is a moody and pretty low brow track. It plods along without chemistry or flair, as if they just wrote it and cut it just to document its inception. Stiff, yet hinting and an easily developed track waiting to escape.

Marea Roja dotdotdot
Surf (Instrumental)

"Marea Roja" borrows a lot from tunes of days gone by. From the opening chords throughout, this seems like string of things you've heard before. Under developed and lacking chemistry, but showing promise.

Mexican Mosquito dotdotdot
Surf (Instrumental)

This is a traditional song transmuted into pure Mexican fun. Party shouts and real garage band feelings emote from "Mexican Mosquito." This is basic primal rock'n'roll in a surf format.

Marea Roja dotdotdot
Surf (Instrumental)

This is an earlier version of "Marea Roja." It's surprisingly more surf and tighter, and sports some real chemistry. Very cool.

El Nuevo Nino dotdotdot
Surf (Instrumental)

This is a demo version of "El Nino Que Se Llevo El Mar." Like the demo ahead of it, it's significantly more persuasive and attractive.
