The Revtunes - The Twompdotdotdot
artworkThe Revtunes are one of the "house bands" that back Jan & Dean on their fairgrounds tours these days. Their surf vision is a blend of surf pop, eighties pop, and ? and the Mysterions rhythmic organ. This single was issued in 1987. The group included Ken Dresher - drums, Ray Dahl - bass, and Dave Elrod - guitar, and Gerry Dahl - guitar.

Free Fall dotdotdot
Fuzz (Instrumental)

This ? and the Mysterions-like instro is swell. It pumps and flows, has a most unique character, and fits into a surf set well enough. The melody is simple, with the track depending on flying drums behind a pumping keyboard and a round tones guitar. It's really a fun track, catchy like a TV commercial. Suave.
