Phil Dirt - Reverb Central - PO Box 1609, Felton, CA 95018-1609 USA The Surf Sluts - Pot Sounds
|Many disturbed punk tinged surf vocals grace this release. Post Cramps grind and mentally unbalanced sounds greet your ears from start to finish. Great grimy surf, from the Surfaris' "I Wanna Take A Trip To The Island," "Papa Oo Mow Mow," the groovy limbo party luau sound of "Greasy Chicken," a totally chunked frat version of the Surfaris' "Surfer Joe," the Surfin' Lungs' "His Last Summer," and the sub "Louie Louie" monster epic "Surfin' On Mars."|
Picks: Dragster, The Rattler
Track by Track Review
Johnny Fortune's "Dragster" finds new meaning in this aggressive format. The chunk of the Tall Boys' version, the charm of the original, and the power of a less-than-normal band. Very cool.
Rockabilly puffed surf grind, with a solid beat and a rockin' riff. More grind than melody, but infectious and rock solid.
