Halifax-based/instro-MeNTaL trio, Urban Surf Kings, is proud to present their 4th and grooviest full length for your listening and dancing pleasure . This 15 song recording contains the surf you’ve grown to love, along with a healthy dose of Spaghetti Western Twang thrown in the mix.
And speaking of recording, this one’s done old-fashioned style, without all that fancy studio polish. Heck, the drums are in mono! Right up the centre. Right like surf & twang should be. Plus it’s mastered by California surf legend Phil Dirt!
This platter includes soon to be hits like "Muchos Diablos", "Hrundi Goes West", and "Rumble Ranchero" (hail to Link Wray on this one). "Hrundi Goes West" may be the first surf meets India song ever recorded (then again, maybe not, but we haven’t heard one).
USK were excited to record a brand new tune penned by the Man From Adano himself, David Britten. His tune "Renegade" is a fitting closer for the disc. For those of you seasoned enough to remember David's "Man From Adano", it was recorded in 1963 by Canadian legends, and Capitol Recording artists: the Esquires. 'Adano' kept the Beatles away from #1 up here in the Great White North. Incidently USK first met David, and some of the Esquires when they re-recorded 'Adano' for their "Surf vs the Flying Saucers"
2008 is the Year of Surf, so won't you pick up "Bang Howdy Partner"? Plus the songs feature some lap steel, and even a bit of Ukulele. Now that's hip!
