Pollo Del Mar - Demodotdotdotdot
artworkThis is Pollo Del Mar's first demo tape. These four studio tracks came into my PO box one day after a polite telephone inquiry from Ferenc Dobronyi about playing on my show. I said, send me a tape, and then let's talk. Well, the first few notes of Teleport '63 is all it took, and I was on the phone to schedule them into the famous pit. This is an auspicious beginning for a grand band with a most unusual and pleasing approach to instros.

Track by Track Review


Teleport '63 dotdotdotdotdot
Surf (Instrumental)

Surfin' the space continuum with a jazzy edgy duel between Jono's & Ferenc's guitars. It conjures images of a battle scene on a small blue planet near Aldebaran. The structure of the song and the grand glissandoes speak volumes about adventure and challenge. Phasers on stun - NOT! This is for keeps!

Nightsticks dotdotdot
Surf (Instrumental)

Howling feedback opens into distorto fuzzmaster lead and Amon Duul II "La Paloma" rhythm guitar. Edgy, dissonant, and accented with an alternative break style that brings the whole thing together. Completely unlike the rest of the CD.

You Can Take Your Clothes Off When You Dance dotdotdotdot
Surf (Instrumental)

This Frank Zappa song is totally cool, with it's jazzy surfified slither and quirky rhythms. Edgy and bitchin' to the max.
