|This rare mid sixties ep from Angola featured four tracks, two vocals ("Paula" and "SO.H.") and two instros that are pretty surfy ("Billy Zoom" and "Manga Madura").|
Picks: Billy Boom, Manga Madura
Track by Track Review
"Billy Boom" is a raucous near surf instro with a big drum break and surfisms on the guitar. Brash and splashy, with loud surf guitar. It's very interesting to hear how surf was transmuted in Africa.
Dark surf guitar plays a frat progression and jammin' melody line, with a frantically double picked bridge. Really dangerous and primitive.
