Killer Filler - Filller Up

Thinking of summer gets me in th mood for a road trip. This weeks post is just right for throwin' in the car and hitting the road. Of course, you have to start off with a full tank.

With a nod to the Ventures and Booker T & the MGs, Killer Filler Up winds through some great tunes. Featuring Cousin Crispy, formerly of Southern Culture On The Skids, this is a great surf/instrumental rock recording – even though there are only a few tunes that I’d classify as “surf”. The other instrumentals are just as good, influenced by exotica and go-go themes and melodies (even a little ska here and there). There are a few covers, mostly obscure, and even their take on “Fever” uses the Sam Butera arrangement. I’d highly recommend picking this up, especially if you’re a fan of loungy surf ala Four Piece Suit or The Tiki Tones. Good versions of the covers and excellent originals. A+

Great blog you've got here.
I snatched up the R.Crumb Sampler (the Cheap Suit Serenaders links are down).
I love surf and instrumental rock.
