The Hydrotones - 'Hydrophonics USA'.... 'This is a brave, challenging CD with a difference which will reward those adventurous enough to seek it out.' - Pipeline Instrumental Review (UK)...

Unusual and fun album and well worth listening to - some of it is like a super rock hip Herb Alpert's Tijuana Brass! Excellent musicianship. *** ' - Davy, New Gandy Dancer (Issue 69)... Phil Dirt of Reverb Central on the track 'Pachyderm Picasso': 'Metal elephants dry chop and grind under edgy guitar until the break comes along, which has an elongated exotic feels to it, almost island adventurous.' ... 'A very unique album and it's nothing short of fantastic. I love the catchy rhythms and the great sax. Not many of the current surf and instro bands use saxophone, but it's one of my favorite components to many of the vintage surf and instro songs.
