"Imagine a cross between the surf of Dick Dale and the raw rockabilly instros of Link Wray, filtered through some really bad microphones. If you can picture that, you're begining to get the idea of what this sounds like. The tracks are primative and the playing is barely adequate, but fans of this wouldn't have it any other way. Its a shame Crypt doesn't seem to be continuing with this series like they did with their "Back From the Grave" garage rock comps. And like that great series, none of the bands here are well known. In fact, none of them are even known, many of the bands only released one 45. No hits here. But would Tim Warren have it any other way? He realizes you're sick of Surf compilations that only include Dick Dale and The Ventures. If you like the genre enough to explore behind those bands, check out this compilation."
