Phil Dirt - Reverb Central - PO Box 1609, Felton, CA 95018-1609 USA The Wedding Present - Watusi
|The Wedding Present was one of the bands I followed for a while in the early nineties. Some of their songs were really well done, yet they never lost their angular edge. Watusi ends with an instro with unexpected surfability, especially for a band from Leeds.|

Near Surf (Instrumental)
This surprising track approaches surf with a fairly traditional period riff and double picking simulated by tape echo. Though the echo gives it a rockabilly feel, the structure and melody line are very surf.
