artworkThese folks must be quite a loud and crunchy band live. There are five instros here, three surf oriented, one garage rant, and one invasion from outer space that will do you in. There's also one vocal, a rousing version of "She Just Satisfies."
Picks: Wild Surf, Trailspotting, Death Car, Ode To Simon and Garfunkel, Return To The Black Hole

Track by Track Review


Wild Surf dotdotdotdot
Garage Surf (Instrumental)

Now, this is great. garage surf, thumpy almost Indian ethics. The bass line is "Pipeline" like. The guitar is intensely reverbed. The surf riff is very tasty. Excellent track, chunky, crunchy, and edgie.

Trailspotting dotdotdotdot
Surf (Instrumental)

Intense middle eastern double picked madness. The sound is thin, but the power and performance are excellent. Major energy, lots of punch, and an evil siege on the oasis feel. Chunky and spunky.

Death Car dotdotdotdot
Surf (Instrumental)

Major crunch, slightly espionage oriented, excellent chop, and lots of power. It's dramatic and screaming with loudness. The thick grind and edge keep this afloat. Very very powerful, with pure assaultive attack in every note. Excellent.

Ode To Simon and Garfunkel dotdotdot
Garage (Instrumental)

Not even a glimpse of Simon & Garfunkel is to be found here. "Ode To Simon & Garfunkel" is pure garage rockin' epic trash. Excellent.

Return To The Black Hole dotdotdotdot
Alien Invasion (Instrumental)

With a distant nod to "Out Of Limits" and ample theremin space sounds, this heavy lumbering chord monster plunders the fields just outside of town. Images of The Quatermass Experiment come to mind as you survive this thundering assault. Pure evil lurks within "Return To The Black Hole."
