Track by Track Review
Rockabilly Surf (Instrumental)
Long aquatic chords and twangin' guitar ride above a classic rockabilly upright bass and surf beat on the drum kit. More country than surf, yet well within the scope of things. Aside from the cool title, "Twang Ten Cowboy" is very enjoyable and inviting. A bit of the islands, a touch of the Southwest, and great charm.
Big Twang (Instrumental)
"Gato Diablo" is born of Link Wray. Big chords, bent notes, intense guitar, a classic surf beat, and grumbling bass. Dark and dangerous, and everything a Link Wray style bruiser should be. Excellent!
