Phil Dirt - Reverb Central - PO Box 1609, Felton, CA 95018-1609 USA B. Brock and his Vibratos - Fright c/w Hang Five
|La Mirada's B. Brock and his Vibratos cut just this one single in 1963. The a-side is an ultra cool tremolo terror that's been comped a lot, while the b-side is less interesting.|
Picks: Fright, Hang Five
Track by Track Review
Echoed evil dark period surf. This is a really cool tune, with reverbed vibratoed lead guitar, and a menacing sound. Reverb kicks and occasional female screams punctuate the track, which relies heavily on the sound rather than a melody. Quite effective, and very suave.
"Hang Five" is nothing like its a-side. While it shares the exuberance, it's only a jam. Frantic drums and loose energy, and some Egyptian lines in the break.
