April 20th Is Right Around The Corner


The Surf Sluts
Pot Sounds
2001


Degenerate mayhem in the form of surf/psychobilly punk. The Surf Sluts hail from York and add their own filthy flavour to obscure surf b-side covers. They have some of their own tracks also, some raucous, some cool and mellow. Particularly good are the instrumental tracks such as 'Dragster' and 'The Rattler' that recapture Dick Dale or The Ventures cruising on base speed.
Moving from the sublime to the ridiculous - such as 'Greasy Chicken' which is feverishly hilarious , or 'Dry Dock In Doha' - a track about a Singaporean bringing goods through customs in Qatar (I think). Musically you cannot fault the Surf Sluts, they're tight and professional and have their chaos well structured. It's generally fun but it genuinely is great surf music albeit performed by northern white trash rednecks whose music is guaranteed to make you dance until you're sick and in a cold sweat.
