Phil Dirt - Reverb Central - PO Box 1609, Felton, CA 95018-1609 USA The Surfin' Lungs - Full Petal Jacket
|This is a superb album from England's most enduring and endearing surf pop band. Their original vocals and occasional instros have long been faves of mine. Two instros grace this disc - most notably the throbbing groove of "Ungawa."|
Picks: 97XF11, Ungawa
Track by Track Review
Slightly darker than is typically the case with Surfin' Lungs instros, "97XF11" has a somewhat exotic melody line and distant chorus. Its coastal sound and structure are really nice. Excellent production and writing.
Throbbing tremolo creates a moody tom tom danger. Structured like Link Wray in the jungle, and very beach oriented. Tribal and undulating, with grode bass and very cool drums. "Ungawa" is all about the tremolo and tom toms.
