Apache 65: Kingdom Of The Snake
Psychedelic surf? Yes, some of that. Spaghetti? Most definitely. Soul? You get that, too.

Let me go on record, though, as saying Apache 65's DNA is Surf Noir at its tightest, darkest, most incredible foundation. The band rocks in the abyss and ascends on sheets of lightning on this CD about a man who, basically, goes crazy and maybe even murderous. I'll watch your back if you'll take cautious care of mine.
