ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
You watched too much TV in the 70s, dig old Clint Eastwood movies and cops & robber shows from the 60s and 70s seem to be much cooler for you than modern day Hollywood schmock? And hey, do you really want to deny that a Ford Thunderbird has a lot more sex appeal than one of these “oh they’re so convenient” family vans of our time? You’re sick of watching American idol (or whatever this kind of TV show is called in your country) and listening to another emo-deathmetal-electro-indie-singer whining about his emotional problems make you cringe…And now you’re looking for the right soundtrack for this feeling…Your search may have come to an end. …

THE INCREDIBLE MR. SMITH delivers the right sound for your ears: An energizing mixture of Californian Surf, Spaghetti Western Sound in the tradition of Ennio Morricone, Hillibilly Twang and wild Sixties Rock combined with a lot of guitar action between Twang, Noise & Blues. If you ever dreamed of a guitarist that sounds like the bastard son of Dick Dale, Link Wray, Jimi Hendrix. and Jeff Beck, don’t look no further!

THE INCREDIBLE MR. SMITH (aka Martin Schmidt and also active as Rob Razorblade in the kick ass surfband THE RAZORBLADES) has been an important figure in the international instro scene since 1997. As a musician, he toured all over Europe, played live shows in little clubs, at festivals and any other kind of venue and convinced an audience with a stylistic range from young punk rockers to dancing beatgirls and grey haired instro veterans. As a writer, he interviewed many of the greats for Pipeline, Banzai and Soundcheck and is the author of the one and only german encyclopedia of surf- and instromusic SURF BEAT. His music was featured in audio plays, documentarys and in several music librares.

The two CDS„The Blues & Some Other Stuff“ (1999) and „The Incredible Strange Sounds Of Mr. Smith“ (2002) gained enthusiastic reviews from fans, magazines, fanzines and well known guitar players and were played in radio shows all over the world.
For his latest album, ADVENTURES IN THE LAND OF TWANG, The Incredible Mr. Smith teamed up with surf drummer deluxe Dusty Watson (Slacktone, Dick Dale, Agent Orange, The Supersuckers). Together they blast through a 21 song extravaganza between surf, rockabilly, blues and lounge exotica that will leave your mouth wide open. Every twang addict will be satisfied after this shot of instrumental poison…It may be the best album of the guitarist from Wiesbaden, Germany. A CD that takes you to a better place, full of happiness, twang, screeching tape echoes and shattering spring reverb….
GET HAPPY THROUGH THE TWANG!

Just a load of Bullshit? Here’s what other people say…

I never heard an instrumental band that was so much fun…
AMERIKANISCHER FAN AFTER THE SHOW

A surprisingly good album from a guitarist we are sure to hear more about.
ALAN TAYLOR / PIPELINE MAGAZINE

I highly recommend this CD to any instro fan
KIRK SCHUTTE/INSTRUMENTAL ROCK’N ROLL

Fine modern adventurous surf, larger than life progressive blues rock, and a few other sounds for good measure. The surf tracks are worth the price of admission.
PHIL DIRT / REVERB CENTRAL

Good Musician!
GITARRE & BASS (Germany’s leading guitar mag)

He is a very good guitarist, especially slide!
The music sounds like it could easily be material for a Quentin Tarantino movie!.
MICHAEL KATON

Martin Schmidt is a phenomenally talented guitar player and on this disc
he cruises effortlessly through an array of styles - surf, blues, hard rock and more.
FERENC DOBRONYI/POLLO DEL MAR

Great guitar tones, and I know how hard that is to do! Also great playing and songs!
Your CD stays in my collection forever - it's really good!
SCOTT HENDERSON

Martin, you sound FANTASTIC!! Keep up the good work!
GARY BRANDIN/THE VANDURAS

He is an amazing guitarist!
JIM THOMAS / THE MERMEN

WOW! WHAT A FIND! Although blues/rock is my favorite style of music, I also enjoy Punk,Psych, and Garage (PPG). I also have a weakness for slide guitar. Lately I've been experimenting with different genres of music and this is by far the coolest thing I've heard in a very long time. I never knew I liked twang but apparently I do because I can't get enough of this. From Surf to Rockabilly to Psych and lots of slide, this cd has something for almost everyone. Highly Recomended!!
