Phil Dirt - Reverb Central - PO Box 1609, Felton, CA 95018-1609 USA The Crossfires - Fiberglass Jungle c/w Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde
|If it wasn't for drummer Don Murray keeping the reels from The Crossfires sessions, this amazing band would be just a rumor to most of us. The only trace would be illusive copies of this stunning single. The Crossfires evolved into The Turtles. This is nothing like the band they became!|
Picks: Fiberglass Jungle, Dr. Jekyll And Mr. Hyde
Track by Track Review
A gentle wave rippling at the shore chord opens to a totally ominous low-E grinder, with evil sax from the twins Kaplan-Volman a.k.a. Flo and Eddie, thundering bass from Chuck Portz, rhythmic tribal drums from Don Murray, and utterly incredible Al Nichol guitar work. This is a must-have surf MONSTER!
A scary idea - a song that flip-flops between soft sax dominated fluff and hardcore creaming surf guitar rave, in a Jekyll and Hyde schitzo vein. Very cool.
