Track by Track Review
Thick pulsing eighties mean instro fare, with a riff influenced by Link Wray filtered through the Damned. Heavy thunder.
Great intense sub-surf guitar intensely firing a blast of "Guitar Radiation" in a powerful setting. More riff than melody, yet quite effective. Excellent!
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.
Big guitar twang and riff rockin' fun. Power-lite guitar churn.
