Leon Smith and the Basics - Jailer Bring Me Water c/w Basic Surfdot
artworkWhat's most interesting about this single is just how bad the a-side is. "Jailer Bring Me Water" is very amateur, to the point of being sad. On the other hand, the b-side "Basic Surf" is titled for the backup band, and falls into the category of "if no one sings, it must be surf."

Rock (Instrumental)

This almost instro is just a riff with vocal inner city yuk. A surf name and reverb on the track does not surf make.
