Phil Dirt - Reverb Central - PO Box 1609, Felton, CA 95018-1609 USA The Beatnik Flies - From Parts Unknown
|The Beatnik Flies were one of the many band in 1984 that fund it necessary to include instros in their albums. While much of the music is fairly tun of the mill for the period, the instros are pretty cool.|

Track by Track Review
Surf Rock (Instrumental)
Not unlike many of the rock instros of the day that borrowed loosely from surf, "Brain Waves" is a rockin' little number with a surfable riff and great edge. The guitar is all extended by delay, and the energy is very high. Quite cool.
"Luxury Dreamride" is more like surf, though from this distance in time, it doesn't seem so. Still, it's a rich and energetic number that moves at a mid tempo pace. There's more going on with respect to variety than most rock instros of the day. Very cool on a seaside drive.
