The Swiv-O-Matics new CD is an epic power struggle, and they win. Huge guitar and plundering relentless drive. The disc continues their quest for a larger than life sound. Their fans will surely be pleased.

Chock full of instrumental screamers, The Return Of The Fez-Men! proves that this Baltimore trio has the talent and sound to equal or even best many of the acts currently in the genre. Blending elements from yesterday (Dick Dale, Link Wray, and practically the entire Del-Fi label surf stable of the '60s) and today (Man Or Astroman, Los Straightjackets, Satan's Pilgrims, Phantom Surfers, etc), the band blasts through a baker's dozen of impressive, and often blistering instrumental tracks. ... It's so cool, it's cruel!! As a final note, I must say that the Swiv-O-Matics' Return Of The Fez Men! has found a welcome home in my own, personal surf/car/rock & roll instrumental collection. Ask anyone who knows me and they'll tell you that that says it all!

Woo-hoo, surf music rules! And The Swiv-O-Matics is a remarkable representation of the genre. Known formerly as The Walkers, this Baltimore trio draws on the best of today and yesteryear. Remember all those '60s surf bands your parents listened to? Now think of Los Straightjackets, Man Or Astroman? and Shadowy Men On A Shadowy Planet. That's what The Swiv-O-Matics sound like: a conglomeration of all those styles. Their best song here is "Royal Chicken To Go-Go."Its happy-but-go-lucky percussion influences you to bop around the neighborhood as if Gidget strolling down the beach. What more could a fan of instrumental bands ask for?
