Terry and the Blue Jeans - Deluxedotdotdot
This album is a rare release from sixties Japanese legends Terry & the Blue Jeans. With traditional Japanese melody elements strained through obvious Ventures' influences and cheesy go-go ethics, plus dramatic puppet-show structures, this band produced some of the most original instro rock around. Some surf influences, and even some Zoot Horn Rollo guitar dissonance.

Chris Ashford had given me a cassette dub years ago, but now that Jay Hector has forwarded a CD-R dub from a nice clean original vinyl source, it seemed time to review the album here. Neither one knows any of the song titles or the real album title.

Surf Rock (Instrumental)

A weird dramatic organ intro precedes this strange completely unmelodic piece. It's dramatic like a spaghetti western sequence piece, and repetitious like a bridge running on endlessly. Then, just as you're convinced it's a puppet show accompaniment, it breaks into a section where the organ and lead trade jammin' licks. It's both intense and warped. Wholly unique.
