Track by Track Review


Scotch n' Soda dotdotdotdot
Scotch Rock (Instrumental)

Yup, it's the Scottish masterpiece, with the sax accompaniment that the Viscounts used in "When The Saints Come Marching In." Very cool, especially when the guitar-sax duet takes over. Where's that bonny las with my kilts?

The Peppermint Twist dotdotdotdot
Pre Surf (Instrumental)

Ringing guitar, 15 ips echoed backtrack, and a little riff. The ringing guitar is very cool, shimmering like a pre-teen Miles Corbin line. It's all so simple, but quite appealing.
