artworkThis is the three song CD single from the Honda Integra ads that made such a stir on Japanese television. This Japanese band is one of the great finds of the modern surf era!

Track by Track Review


Intruder dotdotdotdotdot
Surf (Instrumental)

The CD's title track rules heavily. It is an intense surf number full of double picks and raw energy. This tune is melodic, and fiery. It was used in the very popular Honda Integra TV ads in Japan, and catapulted them into the spotlight.

Typhoon Swell dotdotdot
Surf (Instrumental)

The second track "Typhoon Swell" is a hokey tune that some how drags you under it's spell, even when you don't want to go.

Give Me Lovin' dotdotdot
Surf (Vocal)

Occasionally, the Surf Coasters record a vocal, and most are unusual, quirky, and fun. This is more unremarkable.
