Retroliners – Subway Surfing
Phil Dirt --An interesting CD for adventurous surf fans, or rock instro fans without narrow limits. 2004
"You can't surf in Hoboken, but that hasn't stopped the Mile Square City's one and only instrumental surf-rock instrumental combo. With song titles like Beta Wave, Space Needle Stomp, (theme from) The Sleuth, and Hoboken Hitman, it's easy to guess that the Retroliners delve into the many sub-genres of surf rock, using sci-fi and spy-movie themes. The CD even includes several live tracks recorded at the famous CBGB's (including a cover of the B-52's Rock Lobster). It's bouncy and peppy, with lots of surfadelic riffs. If your favorite twist song is Wipeout and you never miss a rerun of Hawaii 5-0, then this disc might be for you." - The Jersey Journal
