Steel Notes Magazine July & August 2016 but what I found myself drawn to was the percussion. It is probably because I am an old drummer, but I have to say I really like the sound his drummer was getting. Those drums in combination with the guitar absolutely brought to mind crashing waves. Track 2 - Tsunami of Sound - Boogie Board Walk Without a doubt, this band has a killer name! Any band that describes their music as “Huge surf-inspired instrumentals that will make your head shake and your feet move.” gets my attention. After listening to the track the band still had my attention. I particularly liked the lead that came roughly halfway through the song. This band has a raw freshness that I would describe as Surf Punk – the music is good and the band is tight enough, but they have a bit of a garage vibe going on that I dig. Gn arly Wave Vol 2 Music Opportunity in Music Connection Track 3 - Susan SurfTone - Green Light I know Susan’s music from Bongo Boy’s Out of the Garage Volume 2 album. I really liked her work on that LP, so it was with a Grouchy smile that I listened to this track. Man, this woman can play! I challenge anyone to tell me that women can’t rock. All you have to do is listen to Ms. Surftone to realize women absolutely can rock! Hands down, this is one of the best tracks on the album. I love that massive rockabillyesque jam. Listen to this song! What would a show with both Susan SurfTone and the Gore Gore Girls be like? I can only dream. 90 Steel Notes Magazine www.steelnotesmagazine.com
