artworkThis 1991 release sports one really cool surf instro. I happen to like this band a lot - their music has held up well over the past 20 years, so for me, it's still quite fresh. Dig the joy of "Hideous."

Rock (Instrumental)

A distant demented chord warbles an opening to this upbeat, happy surf instro. Perhaps similar in intent and sound to The Tikis (post-Monitor, pre-Romans). "Hideous" is anything but. Splendid light surf imagery, summer fun, and splendid melody and rhythm. This is a very fine track!
