CD Reviews

A+,10 on a scale of 10..........
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I don't know how many of these songs were written by Pete Curry and I don't really care......lets just say that he wrote enough to make this the best surf CD of modern times.....Bar None!!! If Dick Dale is the King of Surf Guitar then Pete Curry is the King of Surf Music.Pete has single handidly lifted the entire genre from its stagnant, rif based,three chord guitar nausea to an incredibly elevated level of inspired, rif based,three chord guitar brilliance.Whether its Pete's Guitar playing on Halibuts CD's.His Bass playing with the Nightriders and Los Straight Jackets or his Drumming for everybody from the HillBilly Soul Surfers to Dave Allen there is one thread that follows him through all his writing and recording.......Genius! The good old American kind of genius...the 90% perspiration 10% inspiration kind of Genius! All of his songs have an attention to compositional detail, to playing quality and (on the tunes that he has enginered and produced) attention to sound! These ingredients alone don't make good listening, but add what I consider Curry's forte and you have an A+ ,10 on a scale of 10 CD. Pete's Secret? ....Fun! No pretense....No Pompous whining......No self-indulgence. Just.... "Man this is a great day,life is great,I'm glad to be alive listening to these tunes" ....... fun music!"

"The Halibuts are a great surf band with a dedicated following of surfers in the south bay of LA. Chumming is their first album and every song is a classic! Add this to your collection and you won't regret it."
An Excellent CD in the best way

"Thise is a great CD filled with the most unheard of stuff in modernday surf music I mean they are just awsome with some of the most interesting and intreging music around the reason I gave it 4 stars is because I tend to perfer Vocals over instro's but for instor's you can't go wrong with this album I mean come on how can you not like a group called That Halibut that play a song call Chumming only they could make throwing fish gut's fun and it worked."
