4 stars/4 stars review from New Gandy Dancer: ". . . this is the sound we like! Crystal clear, sixties style playing on stuff we haven't heard before. Bit of Ventures, bit of surf but in a flow of their own. Well performed and written (did I say all originals?), the best track of which is "Link Man" a rousing 12 bar delivered with panache."
5 stars/5 stars from Bernard Boyat.
Phil Dirt (Reverb Central) gave 4 stars to "Pacifica Blue" and "Lava Tube."
The Lava Pups is a collaborative effort created out of our love for surf and rock instrumental music and desire to have fun. Our debut CD shows the influences of Dick Dale, Link Wray, Duane Eddy and Paul Johnson. The songs range from in-your-face double-picked, glissando-ladened garage surf like "Sea Witch" to the sweetly dissonant ballad "Pacifica Blue."
