THE TREMOLO BEER GUT – Under The Covers With… (Review by TimeLord Michalis)

THE TREMOLO BEER GUT – Under The Covers With…
 2011 (LP/CD Crunchy Frog Recordings)

 I believe no further recommendation is needed about these Danish dudes, that back in 1998 the query “Why aren’t there any surf bands in Denmark?” led them to form the band. Maybe you’ll think that the band’s name is a dangerous and quite explosive combination. You’re damn right and just wait till you listen to their high voltage old school surf & western style of music! 3 words ‘Tremolo’, ‘Beer’ and ‘Gut’ that are completely interwoven with 3 other words, ‘Instro’, ‘Garage’, ‘Surf’. So, as the title explain, it’s a compilation of instrumental covers and according to the band, recorded in a tremoloramic variety of low fidelity audio formats for our sonic education and listening pleasure. All 17 cover versions were recorded between 1998 and 2011, 12 of them have already been released in various forms while 5 of them are brand new and unreleased till now. I’m sure you’ll be much excited listening The Tremolo Beer Gut giving some of their instrumental magic and 50s jungle-60s Spaghetti atmosphere covering a huge gamma, from Kraftwerk (Das Modell), Jon Spencer Blues Explosion (She Said), Depeche Mode (Useless) and Duane Eddy (Because They’re Young) to Beach Boys (Pet Sounds), Tom Waits (Midtown) and Sonic Youth (Death Valley ’69)! So, yes, who needs lyrics when music is served so tremolodically well! An instrumentally magical album… TimeLord Michalis

A small kind of Taste:


  1. Is there any downliadable file?

  2. Sorry, I'm not aware of any!
    Why don't you try to buy it.....it's cheap enough!
    Money guaranteed!
