Track by Track Review
This is a hot performance of the Chevells' great obscuro. It's very hot and fun, full of power. The energy is masked somewhat by the compression breathing and muddy sound.
This classic revival track from the second or third band to carry the torch in the eighties is a fine, melodic, rhythmic pure surf tune with plenty of power and oodles of surfisms. A really important track to the reemergence of surf instros.
