Burt Rocket - Fiberglass Frenzy CD

The 2nd wave of Burt Rocket's roaring surf is now pounding the shores around the world! Firmly rooted in the great tradition of 60's reverb-soaked surf music, yet also exploring new terrain, FIBERGLASS FRENZY is a must for every true surf music fan! Traditional surf sounds are blended with exotica and Far East mystique at times. This follow up to the debut, SAVAGE ICELAND, is bound to please long-time fans, as well as new fans throughout the world. On board this time is drummer Dave Klein of The Ghastly Ones - he lays down a monster beat on all twelve cuts here. Cover art comes from the always amazing Fred Lammers.

Tracks: Ho-Dad Hot Dog - Boss Board - Bedouin Banzai - Santo's Hot Rod - Wave Vehicle - The Left Arm Of Buddha - Sea-N-Shore - Fiberglass Frenzy - The Wreck - Twang-O-Matic Terror - The Spy Who Came In From The Surf - Hang Twang Follow Burt Rocket On Facebook:
