artworkTheir first release was this four song twelve inch EP. It foretold the great Guitar Beat album, which was licensed out to PVC from Don't Fall Off The Mountain. Their impact was immense in terms of laying down the foundation for the expanding instro world we surf in today. Danny Amis and Jody Harris left their mark here.

Track by Track Review


Searching dotdotdotdot
R&B (Instrumental)

Major drum action, and plenty of cool R&B Vegas coolness in the low down sax and guitar twin melody lines. The jazz influences are strong, and the rhythm is quite tasty.

Rise And Fall Of Flingel Bunt dotdotdotdot
Bachelor Surf (Instrumental)

An inspired rendition of this classic surf targeted number, with tongue planted firmly in cheek. Bouncy, and utterly fun.

Tight Turn dotdotdotdot
R&B (Instrumental)

Screeching tires and crash boom. This gnarly sax lead R&B number is quite the low-down nasty tune.

Tone Zone dotdotdotdot
Guitar (Instrumental)

The keyboard leads off this eerie number with tortured guitar notes and less than sane sound.
