Wipe Out dotdotdot
Surf (Instrumental)

The problem with covering this track is how hard it is to top the original, or even live up to Ron Wilson's drums. And so it is here, not lived up to. It's an OK performance, but why do it?

Pipeline dotdotdotdot
Surf (Instrumental)

This is a very nice track. It is rhythmic, and has a unique enough sound that it carries it off. There's no reverb, but rather delay on the guitars, and that seems to make this work well. I find that I still enjoy this performance after 10 years of listening to it.
