artworkI suspect these guys can't decide if their a rockabilly band, a hot rod band, a surf band, or a garage band. In any case, this is a nice CD with some fine spirited tracks, and some infectious instros.
Picks: Revenge Of The Mole Man, Rumble Mambo, El Toro

Track by Track Review


Revenge Of The Mole Man dotdotdot
Surf (Instrumental)

A very nifty number, employing a basic surf progression style melody, and lots of chunk. It rolls right into your livingroom, stays for a while, and leaves you satisfied afterward.

Rumble Mambo dotdotdotdot
Surf (Instrumental)

Inspired by Link Wray's classico, and then morphed into a mambo, then vibrated and double picked, and delivered with extreme finesse. Fine instro, mighty fun, and very powerful.

El Toro dotdotdotdot
Surf (Instrumental)

This is a fine cover of Link Wray's My Beth, delivered with extreme accent and wham. Plenty of string swipes, lots of angst, and very infectious playing, almost like King of Hawaii with distortion. Great double picking, and powerful surfisms.
