artworkThose Japanese madmen of surf have gone and done it now! They've done industrial dance remixes of a bunch of their surf rants... and while that may sound like a bad idea, this is brilliant!!! I was apprehensive, but once the laser beam captured the musical bits, all fears were belayed. This is one monster CD... surf or not, pure or not. WOW!

Track by Track Review


Wild Cherry dotdotdotdot
Industrial Surf Remix (Instrumental)

Aside from the "Get off your ass motherfucker" intro, this track is totally not surf and majorly high energy.

Fly Up dotdotdotdot
Industrial Surf Remix (Instrumental)

Bizarre remix in a Hip Hop sense of the word. Hypnotic and absurd.

Intruder dotdotdotdot
Industrial Surf Remix (Instrumental)

This is the Honda Integra commercial smash hit. Not much survives in tact, as they completely reworked it into a bizarre industrial dance mix hypno track... amazing!

Waste Land dotdotdot
Industrial Remix (Instrumental)

This is the first track that they did in a totally not surf style. It probably inspired this CD. It's been toned down for this release... really! Industrial dance surf weirdness.

Boogie Man In Jungle dotdotdot
Surf (Instrumental)

Scream for your life, it won't help. Fuzzy lead lines warn of the coming of the boogie man. A surf bed supports this horror from the surf song, accented by evil growls from the boogie man himself.

Ultra Q's Theme dotdotdotdotdot
Industrial Surf (Instrumental)

This is simple the most amazing blend of the Surf Coasters super pumped surf with maximum industrial dance and other techno influences. Somehow, it seems to live in both worlds... this is GREAT!

Miserlou dotdotdotdot
Surf Remix (Instrumental)

Huge monster remix of an early single track... Echo Plex trash and grunts and strange weirdness accent this otherwise straight ahead surf rant. Wow!

Free Fall dotdotdotdot
Surf (Instrumental)

"Church Key" whammy dips and synth psi-fi stuff over a major surf track... not the Richie Podolor tune. Very good!

Aside from the "Get off your ass motherfucker" intro, this track is totally not surf and majorly high energy.
