What really comes across on this record is the band's energy and dynamism - the wide range of influences bounce off each other explosively, creating a sound with a definite and unique edge. There is a riotous sense of fun in the party groove attitude of tracks like "Party Girl", "When You Gonna Learn" and "The Jinx"; whilst the downtempo tracks ooze cult cool on "Catwoman' Strut" and "Burlesque Queen", co-written with Tura Satana, star of the film "Faster Pussycat, Kill, Kill" and sung smokily by Kay Elizabeth. Then there are the surf-guitar instrumentals, "Eat My Dust A Phonic" opens the album with a high speed trip down a 60's speedway complete with samples, whilst Mariachi horns add spice to the surf groove of "Showman Twang Tiki Gods". The delta-blues of "Wrecking My Life" adds to the nostalgic Americana and we are even treated to an Instrumental version of the Sonic's "Shot Down" and a tribute to a certain influence on "Take It From Diddley".

Thank you so much for the recent Mediafire links, they're so much easier to navigate (I still can't figure out why Netkups screwed with me so badly). I hope it's not more troublesome for you, it sure is nice on this end. You're posts are always great, thanks for everything.
