VA • War Of The Surf Guitars!



Review by Steve Leggett
War of the Surf Guitars gathers 32 tracks from two top contemporary surf labels, Golly Gee Records and Double Crown Records, and features 15 bands in a lively compilation of fiery instrumentals, many of them previously unreleased or vinyl-only cuts. The casual listener may find the whole thing a little boring after a few minutes, since the tone and pitch of things here is very much in homage to the early 1960s reverb-laden surf guitar sound, but true fans of the genre will be delighted. Highlights include the Merseybeat feel of "Side Slippin" by the Supertones, the crazy, garage vibe of "The Wayback Machine" by the Honkeys, the eerie "Malaguena" by the Boss Martians, and the thundering "Run Chicken Run/Rawhide 63" by the Footstompin Trio.
