- Surf Music
Help us meet our monthly goal:
This long-awaited disc by The Concussions is here! A dozen raw, twangy surf and guitar instrumental tunes, delivered by guys that are masters of their instruments and know their way around a recording studio. Hailing from Grand Rapids, Michigan, this combo is led by Dick Chiclet on lead guitar, who also produced recorded and mixed this release. His production style, which favors the use of vintage gear and is inspired by Joe Meek and others in the past and present that have stuck to analog recording techniques. This all goes towards delivering a disc that will appeal to surf and vintage instrumental rock n' roll aficionados, as well as those that are just looking to move and groove on the dance floor. If you love the early 60s Brit instro sound of The Tornados or Shadows, or the more modern instrumental recordings of The Kaisers, you will absolutely flip over this disc! The disc art is truly out of this world - incredible illustration work by Shawn Dickinson!
Tracks: Pump City - Trouble Gum - A Skilled, Generous Lover - Have Mersey - Moonballs - Flicksville - Polyester Fester - Whack Job - Dock Rockblock - Storm Team Dave - In A Mystic Mood - Brain Bats
