artworkThis demo sports 6 well written originals with a spy edge and big guitar twang. It's a hard sound to buttonhole, but if you're into Davie Allan and Mission Impossible, this will work for you.
Picks: Napoleon Complex, Four Eyes, Siberian Express, The Vibe, Our Man In Cairo, Terror At 7 Springs

Track by Track Review


Napoleon Complex dotdotdot
Spy (Instrumental)

Big fuzz approaching the spy sound from the Mission Impossible direction, with string bending action and a credible melody. Whirling console organ backs up the double picked parts.

Four Eyes dotdotdot
Spy (Instrumental)

"Four Eyes" is a pretty darn cool fuzz number with a bit of surf sensibility and lots of edge. melodic and relentless.

Siberian Express dotdotdot
Spy (Instrumental)

Espionage on the "Siberian Express" is dipped in organ cheese. Well written and executed, with big guitar charging and whistling organ.

The Vibe dotdotdotdot
Spy Surf (Instrumental)

"The Vibe" floats groovily across a sad scene with cool organ tone and haunting drums and bass. The guitar rings in danger looming in the distance. Brooding and hazardous.

Our Man In Cairo dotdotdot
Spy (Instrumental)

The big twang goes to Egypt, where a relentless riff and spy tone support whirling organ melodies. haunting and troublesome.

Terror At 7 Springs dotdotdot
Spy (Instrumental)

Big fuzz spy with intense guitar drive and a whistling organ underbelly. Very big and powerful, with vibrant harsh guitar work. Quite cool.
