Can't get enough of these surf comps! Gonna be postin' some KLASSIC stuff over the next few weeks, old and newish. Real easy way to hear good groups and begin a serious collection. Some of you may have these - others will want them. ENJOY all.
Bikini World is especially cool. As a collection, it's uniformly hot spit, especially Untamed Youth's blow torch summer epic, "Tube City" and the painfully-punned "Surfs You Right" by Finland's finest, Laika & the Cosmonauts. "Scalpin' Party" by Jackie & the Cedrics has some of the most percolating percussion I've ever encountered, but, disappointingly, they just fade out instead of come up with a proper ending. "XKE!" from Seattle's own Boss Martians, is, as you might expect, eerie and extradimensionally cool. You may think you've heard this stuff a million times, but we both know that's not enough. Gnarly, dude.
