The Treble Spankers - A Shot In The Dark c/w Backfiredotdotdot
artworkThis is a single from the Araban period, but not really at that caliber. More loungie than surfy. The B-sdie is cool.
Picks: A Shot In The Dark, Backfire

Track by Track Review


A Shot In The Dark dotdot
Surf Lounge (Instrumental)

Organ lead on this pedestrian cover of Henry Mancini's film theme. Quite disappointing for this otherwise great band.

Backfire dotdotdot
Surf (Instrumental)

Quirky plunky number with a jazzy feel. This works well with the Mancini tune, but is infinitely better, which doesn't mean it it's anything other than OK. Burrito my horse and I still LOVE the Araban album the best! ."..and her eyes they filled with tears..."
