The four-piece might become a National Treasure if it keeps producing music as good as it does on Shit Surf; this five-track effort is pretty Kick-Ass, not once rolling Snake Eyes.
Shit Surf departs off like a maddened criminal flying Con Air with Duane & The Eddies boasting a guitar lick that will melt your Face/Off. It breaks down into a saucy, Wild at Heart chorus that is Gone in Sixty Seconds. Next is the Moonstruck Bloody Beach Blanket, a lo-fi, jangly ode to being Trapped in Paradise.
You can Drive Angry to the raucous pair of Surfin Kill City and Cant Stand You. The former brings The Rock with G-Force, like an Adaptation of The Beach Boys done under the influence of something The Sorcerers Apprentice concocted. The latter is as deadly as a Vampires Kiss, downright Bangkok Dangerous with a fiery hook that would do Ghost Rider proud.
The Fabulous St. Knicholas Cage closes with the Knowing, feverish Lamarckism, which stumbles off like some sweaty, heartbroken gambler Leaving Las Vegas or some manic, ever-shouting, tax-evading, but lovable actor with a receding hairline ditching the City of Angels. Shit Surf has Stolen my heart; its certainly more Raising Arizona than The Wicker Man. Thats high praise. Download it at tfskc.bandcamp.com. Joshua Boydston
