VA - Bikini World

Can't get enough of these surf comps! Gonna be postin' some KLASSIC stuff over the next few weeks, old and newish. Real easy way to hear good groups and begin a serious collection. Some of you may have these - others will want them. ENJOY all.

Bikini World is especially cool. As a collection, it's uniformly hot spit, especially Untamed Youth's blow torch summer epic, "Tube City" and the painfully-punned "Surfs You Right" by Finland's finest, Laika & the Cosmonauts. "Scalpin' Party" by Jackie & the Cedrics has some of the most percolating percussion I've ever encountered, but, disappointingly, they just fade out instead of come up with a proper ending. "XKE!" from Seattle's own Boss Martians, is, as you might expect, eerie and extradimensionally cool. You may think you've heard this stuff a million times, but we both know that's not enough. Gnarly, dude.

There is no second part - just downloaded the file and all 15 cuts were there. Please try again and maybe use a different unzip program. It's a great comp - worth getting all of it.
