Track by Track Review


Here Come The Sea Lions dotdotdot
Surf (Instrumental)

Stompin' thunder murk with a dark double picked lead guitar. Some interesting drums, grumbling bass, and that intense guitar.

Moaning Lisa dotdotdotdot
Surf (Instrumental)

Heavy double picked lead guitar drives this track down a dangerous road. Big drama opens "Moaning Lisa," which drives a double picked line borne of a variation on "Egyptian Surf." It's not derivative, but suggests it.

Wrath Of The Polar Bear dotdotdotdot
Surf Punk (Instrumental)

As always, Mike Palm's seminal punk band recreate "Miserlou" in their own unique style. Aggressive and rough textured, with a fine blend of melody and aggro chunk. Powerful and in your face surf punk.
