Phil Dirt - Reverb Central - PO Box 1609, Felton, CA 95018-1609 USA The Boss Martians - Pandilla en Motocicleta / Psychotic Cycle Blues / I Want More / Busted, Brainless, Broke
|This is the most recent Boss Martians single, taken in part from their from their Move! CD. Like their CD, the tracks are very well produced and the performances strong. Infectious surf, go-go, fuzz, and pop wrapped in a Fender blanket. Three grand instros and one rockin' garage pop vocal called "I Want More."|

Track by Track Review
"Pandilla en Motocicleta" is a Davie Allan inspired instrumental with a cool riff and solid sound. catchy and playful, this track flows well and shows off the new Harley saddlebags on your Kawasaki just fine.
Go-Go Fuzz (Instrumental)
This tune slowly rises from a soft intro to a Ventures-like fuzzed guitar instro. The basic idea idea has more in common with post surf go-go than the reverb generation, but that doesn't stop it from being quite fun.
Somewhat like "Psychotic Cycle Blues," but with more guts, "Busted, Brainless, Broke" is a fine pumpin' rock and roll tune. I particularly like the infectious keys and drums.
