New Topic
Page 1 of 1

We just wanted to post a copy of the review from this month's issue of VG. We are very happy to be part of the whole surf music community.
Vintage Guitar- May 2009
by Dan Forte
Take Reverb Galaxy, a Maryland-based quartet that literally wears it's reverb on it's sleeve. Not that that's necessarily a bad thing, as the nine originals in Angle of Attack illustrate. All four members have a hand in the songwriting, but Strat-wielding lead guitarist Art Svrjcek leads the way-from the angular opener "Invasion", to his melodic nod to Hank Marvin "In the Shadow's Shadow". It is, in fact the strength and variety of the compositions that impress most here-which considering the band's tightness and Svrjcek's big tone, is saying a lot. This, thankfully, is not a collection of riffs in search of a melody-the trap too many neo-surfers fall into. If the Ventures, were still in the practice of mining regional bands' repertoires for material they would do well to check out Reverb Galaxy.

Dude,
You forgot to do the plug for the online "Guitar Player" June issue review! Razz
