|A fine single with three cool instros and a trashy porn extract opener. No two tracks from this band are alike. Too cool!|

Track by Track Review
Happy Punk (Instrumental)
Thrashy chord rockin' damped choppin' sub punk, slightly reminiscent of the Toy Dolls. Cool and fun, thrashy and trashy.
Organ and loungy bass lines bring forth a spy guitar piece with a James Bond-ish feel. It's more than derivative, and more than just a spy track. "Omega C73-785G" is a well developed capsule ready for a film score from thirty years back, "bump bump" chorus and all.
Rickie Rocket and Die Rocks
Vibratoed semi Link Wray inspired surf, with a slightly light weight yet mean sound. The relentless beat provides a rhythmic backdrop to a solid riff, with an eventual lead surf riff over the top. It's pretty repetitive, yet has the kind of minimal appeal of the Linkster. Very cool track.
