Rocket 808: Digital Billboards 7″

Garage rock veteran John Schooley presents an entirely successful fusion of distorted rock’n’roll guitars and vintage drum machines. “Digital Bilboards” is somewhere in between 20 Jazz Funk Greats and either “Human Fly” or “Planet Claire”, but instrumental, and with heavier layers of swooping, tremolo-doused surf guitars. The B-side is a cover of Elvis’ “Mystery Train” which sounds halfway between Suicide and Digital Leather. I’m totally up for more of this.
