Track by Track Review


Cement Head dotdotdot
Rock (Instrumental)

Thick pulsing eighties mean instro fare, with a riff influenced by Link Wray filtered through the Damned. Heavy thunder.

Guitar Radiation dotdotdotdot
Sub-Surf (Instrumental)

Great intense sub-surf guitar intensely firing a blast of "Guitar Radiation" in a powerful setting. More riff than melody, yet quite effective. Excellent!

Booba Looba Beach dotdotdotdot
Surf (Instrumental)

This is a unique and warm surf instro, only slightly reminiscent of the sound of SoCal's Wedge. It's a vibrant and ringing number with a great melodic riff. Instantly endearing, "Booba Looba Beach" captures your heart and imagination. Fluid and well developed.

Hook In My Mouth dotdotdot
Surf (Instrumental)

Big guitar twang and riff rockin' fun. Power-lite guitar churn.
