The Surf Trio - King Of Cooldotdotdotdot
artworkThe more I listen to the Surf Trio, the more I like what they are doing with surf. Their latest CD (European release) contains the music that is used for the TLC (The Learning Channel) program Neat Stuff, which airs Thursday evenings at 10 PM (& 7 PM on the West Coast). The B-side of this single is in that vein, and it is great! The A-side is a vocal, and with their instrumental surf/fuzz centered sound being used as a bed, the vocals are quite good. "King Of Cool" has a Velvet Underground feel about it that's quite complimentary. Good single!

Surf (Instrumental)

Like their soundtrack to the TLC program Neat Stuff, the B-side of this single is in aggressive and high spirited. It's a rippin' tube-riding assault! I am most fond of this style from this band. Highly infectious.
