This is a fun disc. Dark and ominous sounds crawling out of the corner ready to pounce at a second's notice. Even Phil Dirt likes it -- 4 stars --This 1993 release by Chicago based Spies Who Surf is a classic mix of jazz and surf. very good musicianship and writing, well produced tracks, and interesting ideas. Some infectious material, some acquired taste, but all very well done.

Special Fat City Boss Bonus -- Spies Who Surf version of Hocus Pocus by Focus -- say that 3 times fast. This is from a really crappy compilation of modern alt covers, it is the best thing on the disc and the only other existing cut they did. Enjoy.
