Best of Instrumentals PT. 2
The tracks are remixed and remastered from the CDs 'Nu Wave Surf Instrumentals', Seaside Madness', 'Surf Music Portal', 'Timeless Instrumentals In Paradise', and 'Time-Space Surf Rider'. Floating in the canyons of my sick mind-on guitars, bass, synths, keyboards, vocals & various drum machines. I do not use computer software at all... Recorded digitally on 8-track. Tone, rhythm & melody, using as few notes as possible These are some of the key elements in some tracks that I strive for. Quite the opposite in others. Like soundtracks to movies--sometimes only a couple of notes are needed to evoke a feeling. Played guitar for decades. Keyboards for 5 years. Influences: Many, many unsigned experimental heros. Also---William Shakespear, William Wordsworth, Thomas Hardy, Wishbone Ash, The Shadows, Pink Floyd, Gary Numan, Aqua Velvets, Iron Maiden, Hawkwind, Tangerine Dream, The Atlantics, Slacktone, The Surf Kings. Sounds Like: some of the above and sooo much more (or less). Sounds like--An aural extravaganza of bizarre sounds rushing through my brain, the by-product of decades of listening (voluntarily and involuntarily) to a plethora of strange sounds, on this planet and several others. Some of my tracks sound like ice-cold beer being squirted into your ears at a controlled pressure, so as not to perforate your ear drums. Other tracks sound like Floridian manatees being hit by speed boats navigated by totally drunken pricks at the helm. Most of my other tracks--I have no explanation for them---you judge--this is not 'American Fookin' Idol! Maaaan.
