The Volcanos - The Last Wave c/w Twilight at Rincondotdotdotdot
artworkJust when you thought you'd gotten over the last Volcanos' ep featuring "Krakatoa", and then surf-vived it appearing on "Instro Nation". Well, that was nothin'. This single goes heads above the last effort, and that was great. Both sides are killer! The cats at Neurotic Bop are the schizoid players that issued the B-Movie Brain CD with themselves under a half-dozen different names sporting a half dozen different aural personas. It's obvious that versatile is the watchword. This clearly shouts "SURF" from both grooves (one on each side).
Picks: The Last Wave, Twilight At Rincon

Surf (Instrumental)

Nicely played and pleasant listening. The energy from the speed is somehow restrained.

Twilight At Rincon dotdotdotdot
Surf (Instrumental)

Yup! This is one of their most melodic and endearing tunes. A great riff from one of the best new bands around (especially when you include their alter ego the Hell Benders). Wow! Totally infectious and powerful!
