Track by Track Review


Sidewinder dotdotdotdot
Garage Fuzz (Instrumental)

Ultra dirty fuzz twang and big chord whammy, stinging intensity and dangerous thunder. And that's just the opening. "Sidewinder" is a huge track with Link Wray influences and surfisms. Very heavy, like Robert Johnson and Punchdrunks sometimes do. Excellent!

Intoxica dotdotdotdot
Garage Surf (Instrumental)

Neal Nissensen's classic "Intoxica" is pumped out with the kind of intensity the Ape Men have when they do it. Grindy, heavy, thick, and sporting active-panned glissandoes. Very cool!
