The Sultans Of Jungle - Zulu Stomp c/w No Looking Backdotdotdotdot
artworkSurf from Helsinki, Finland. Tribal big band drums and rhythmic reverby surf guitar. These guys have made that Sing Sing Sing power drum thing the foundation of their sound. The lead player is Pekka Laine (Hypnomen), but that's where the similarity ends. A GREAT single.
Picks: Zulu Stomp, No Looking Back

Zulu Stomp dotdotdotdot
Surf (Instrumental)

That super cool big band swing beat used in Sing Sing Sing that got transmuted into what Cozy Cole did with Topsy Part 2 oozes primitiva & forbidden jungle. This is very tribal.

No Looking Back dotdotdotdot
Surf (Instrumental)

This track is even more tribal, with more super cool beat and jungle sensibility. This is more tribal than Zulu Stomp.
