Phil Dirt - Reverb Central - PO Box 1609, Felton, CA 95018-1609 USA The Buddies - The Beatle c/w Pulsebeat
|This is a nice single with one really good side. As with way too many singles, the b-side is very cool, while the a-side leaves you wondering what the label was thinking. The Buddies were a Buffalo studio band.|
Track by Track Review
Trashy studio rock with horns... that great tribal Bo Diddley beat with way too much organ chording.
Excellent surf guitar in a slightly sad shimmering format. Vibrato, reverb, and a little haunted. Excellent dribbling guitar. The riff is played out across interesting chords. While "Pulsebeat" is no ball of fire, it is very cool in a moody surf way. This was the b-side to "The Beatle."
