band, album: V/A, Better than the Average Weekend
label: Deep Eddy
for fans of: surf guitar, Shadowy Men on a Shadowy Planet
cd review: This one isn't new, but it's gotten better with age so I'm doing my part to keep the vibe alive. Best known for their Kids In The Hall TV series theme song, Shadowy Men on a Shadowy Planet have made some of the most fun music ever. Better Than The Average Weekend is a tribute to the Shadowy geniuses. On this disc you get 22 tracks that are dripping with reverb and tremolo performed by some of the best in the modern surf biz. You also get the famous Kids In The Hall theme song, "Having an Average Weekend" revamped by Dirk Doom & The Overdrive Orchestra. Also be on the lookout for an upcoming article I'll be writing on modern surf.
