80's surf music. takes me back. pop with a country flare to the guitar fills and solos
Saw these guys with The Bangles at Jimmyz during Mardi Gras in 1986.
her unplugged performance is amazing. she looks effortless when she sings too
Agree with you on the unplugged performance
I've probably posted this video three or four times, but I'm going to see these guys tonight at a street festival for $5.00. Been looking forward to seeing them live for a couple of years. Seven or eight other bands are playing, including High on Fire. Screaming Females are playing on Sunday.
Great band. My faves were Like Wow Wipeout, Hayride to Hell, Bittersweet and Call Any Time. I thought of them as more of a mix of jangle pop and cow punk. I guess jangle pop was heavily influenced by surf rock, especially the guitars the used, mostly Rickenbackers and Fender Jaguars.
Yeah that's a good description. I hear a lot of major pentatonic country licks in their leads and fills but obviously without the overt country rhythm and vocals. Upbeat good stuff
Guadalcanal Diary straddled that same territory between cow punk and jangle pop, sometimes going from dueling Strats (Watusi Rodeo) to a Ricky and an acoustic guitar at the same time (Litany).
This is the sort of intensity you just don't hear these days:
