word: this was the record that bridged the lonsome bedroom recorder to the full on sonic pop trio that made "dope box". the tracks "unisex headwave", "cha cha", "screw", "sufin' le charles", "tattoo" and "bad mood" were band efforts. this, the second version of "surfin'..." was actually done as THE GODS OF THUNDER. a kid's drumkit, twangy bass drenced in reverb and tremelo with the guitar and vocals overloading the same amplifier had us sounding like indy rockers on AM radio. there was actually a remix done of "freakin'..." by this guy, tommy d, who had worked with tupak and some other rap super-stars. essentially, he put tupak and scarface rhymes over our basic tracks -- sprinkled with a little 808. pretty fuckin' cool in a really weird way.
