artworkThere's nothing surf about All The Volume... Twice The Distortion, but World Of Distortion included a couple of decent instros on this classic paisley underground release from 1987.

Track by Track Review


I'm Gonna Kill Myself dotdotdot
Garage (Instrumental)

The drums and bass create a might rhythmic backdrop for the distortion guitar melody, which would very easily convert to a surf rage. Much of the song circles around a screaming psych jam occasionally enhanced by glissandos and weird electro drum effects.

Tarantula dotdotdotdot
Garage (Instrumental)

Slow drums, moody bass, and glorious long distortion notes based in a drone create a spectacular pulsing wash of psychedelic intensity. "Tarantula" is a very cool track, influenced partly by Link Wray, but mostly steeped in the traditions of the late sixties where the flower children didn't rule. Very cool!
