Phil Dirt - Reverb Central - PO Box 1609, Felton, CA 95018-1609 USA Swell Maps - Loin Of The Surf
|First off, swell as used here is not a surf term. The Swell Maps made some pretty angular semi pop music in the UK during the eighties. They cut an instro that was a B-side, had a surf name, and even approached the more rhythmic side of the genre as defined at that time. For the collector, or fan of the early eighties British scene.|

British Post Punk Surf (Instrumental)
"Loin Of The Surf" is not particularly melodic. Rather, it's a dry, angular chord fest that sports the general feel of coastal doings. Not a bad track!
