The Weisstronauts -- Perky
The Weisstronauts always create original and adventurous music outside the normal bounds. This is another step in that journey. It's a very cool release. If you're looking for surf, this isn't it, but as rock instros go, Featuring Perky is a fine release. Phil Dirt
The Weisstronauts are masters of the space, twang, surf rock underground. Think of the Ventures playing acid rock versions of the incidental music from the Beverly Hillbillies. Everything is upbeat in a slightly campy way and played full on as if they've assembled a lot of goofy musical cliches that they are committed to taking seriously. Fun stuff.

Am a musicholic - I'm 52 -- I heard my first Ventures song in '66 and have been a fan of twang ever since. Of course all the other guitar gods were added over the years, along with a lot of other great music. I have been a DJ in my younger years on air -- WPFW and in clubs and currently produce a local television show about the performing arts.
