Surfside Four, The – “Ballad of The TIki” – [Juanco Records]

Powerful surf tunes from reverb drenched quartet from Arizona include original compositions and covers. Rockabilly (track 5 has farm animal sounds), Middle Eastern, spy and Tiki culture are all staples of surf music but they appear here in a refreshing way. Fun band to see live, all wear sunglasses and a fez.

Unlisted track 11 is not the band, but a 1960′s recording of a “numbers” broadcast – peculiar shortwave transmissions announcing random numbers suspected of having an espionage use.
