Shecky and the Twangtones - Chupa Cobra c/w Love Will Tear Us Apartdotdotdotdot
artworkTwo demo tracks from one of the more original bands playing with surf. Light and melodic, and also very engaging. I think it's time for a real CD from Shecky and the Twangtones.
Picks: Chupa Cobra, Love Will Tear Us Apart

Chupa Cobra dotdotdotdotdot
Surf (Instrumental)

With the playfulness of muted Dick Dale-isms the way Ron Eglit plays them in Dead Men Don't Surf, Shecky and the Twangtones deliver a truly delightful track that's delicate and fun. This light track is very attractive, and fits really well on that drive down 101 in search of the perfect spot. Wonderful!

Surf (Instrumental)

"Love Will Tear Us Apart" has been done once or twice instrumentally before, but this is so positive and light that it's at odds with the darkness of the original. Very fun!
