New Music Showcase: The Intoxicators!

One of the many highlights of attending this year's Hukilau was getting to catch a few performances by Tallahasee surf band, the Intoxicators! Here's a review of their 13-track CD, Journey to the Center of the Earth.

Journey to the Center of the Earth is a good mix of well executed surf tunes - classic and new, live and studio recorded. Almost as fun as listening to the CD is imaging the improbable images that the songs' titles suggest: "Prostitutes in a Clown Car," "The Claw End of the Hammer of the Gods," and "Tijuana Catfight" are a few examples.

My favorite song on Journey is the slowed down, atmospheric "Phantom Mustang" which would be the perfect song for any teenage male finding himself in the following situation: in the backseat of his daddy's '57 Chevy, necking with the girl of his dreams who has bubblegum breath and wears a fuzzy pink sweater and a skirt with a poodle on it. Yeah, the song's that good.

Of course, even better than listening to the CD is watching these boys live. They're tight.
