artworkOne of the great obscuros, "Unknown" has been covered many times in the last twenty years. Its rhythmic power surf guitars and intense damped reverb, plus the gnarly opening reverb crash make this a must have track.

Surf (Instrumental)

"Unknown" has been covered many times. The Mermen still include it in their live shows, as captured on their Haunted House CD, and Splashback do a killer rendition when they play live as well. This is one crunchy track, splashy and intense right from the initial reverb kick and glissando. Don Bradley's melody line is exceptionally good. It was the A-side of "What I'm Gonna Do" (Garnet 101).
