Track by Track Review


Double-O-Surfin' dotdotdotdot
Spy Surf (Instrumental)

Slowly rising from the inaudible depths of espionage, "Double-O-Surfin'" becomes a fine surf instro, with stinging guitar playing a catchy riff over a solid ominous spy backtrack. Adventurous and solid, with glissandoes and excellent drums. It hints just a tad at "Secret Agent Man."

Cast Your Spell dotdot
Spy Surf (Instrumental)

A bit of the old distortion and an old fashioned rock and roll progression pumped by a Wurlitzer's swirl in the lead... infectious in a post surf go-go kinda way.

Davros Is Headless dotdotdot
Spy Surf (Instrumental)

heavy frat angst thunder, with a spy edge and garage pound. More sixties garage than anything else.

Dub All Agents dotdotdot
Spy Surf (Instrumental)

garage dub and curious bass plunder with calliope organ and carnival cruise sounds. Way fun.
