Synopsis

Amazon.com
Can't get enough of these surf comps! Bikini World is especially hip as it includes a passel of artists that usually avoid the hi-fi world of the compact disc, including Phantom Surfers, Untamed Youth, and the Trashwomen, as well as a bunch of bands I'd never heard of like The Royal Knightmares, The Hillbilly Soul Surfers, and Sir Bald Diddley & his Hounourable Right Big Wigs (well, that's how they spell it). As a collection, it's uniformly hot spit, especially Untamed Youth's blow torch summer epic, "Tube City" and the painfully-punned "Surfs You Right" by Finland's finest, Laika & the Cosmonauts. "Scalpin' Party" by Jackie & the Cedrics has some of the most percolating percussion I've ever encountered, but, disappointingly, they just fade out instead of come up with a proper ending. "XKE!" from Seattle's own Boss Martians, is, as you might expect, eerie and extradimensionally cool. You may think you've heard this stuff a million times, but we both know that's not enough. Gnarly. --John Chandler
 

CD Reviews

Bikini World For The Surf World
los_bomboras | San Antonio, TX United States | 07/13/2001
(5 out of 5 stars)

"What can someone say about such a great album of all these supurb bands? Well for starters, it starts off with the phantom surfers which quickly reveals what listeners are in store for. Whether it be The Bomboras with Time Bomb, which is one of my favorites on this album, or Fathomless by The Fathoms, this combo of bands are sure to mesmorize listeners and true fans of surf music,"
