Various Artists - Instrumental Fire
It's time, I feel, for some real twanging sounds.This LP by released by the excellent MuSick label way back in 1996. At the time it was a sampler of the best instro bands around. Many of the bands we know and love well (Man..or Astroman?, Los Straitjackets, Laika And The Cosmonauts)and there are some weird tracks (Surfin' Turd by Scratch Bongowax anyone?!). It should be noted that, as the name implies, it is an LP of instromental tracks, not necessarily surf, but surf is by far and away the best represented genre, so plenty of reverb action!
