Scotland instrumentalists The Beat Poets put this tidy little EP out the same year I graduated high school. I picked this up years later when I'd gotten pretty firmly into instrumental surf music, and this is unrepentantly simple, beautiful and tough surf styling. There's no outlandish Dick Dale type guitar work or pop-culture sampling a la later groups like ...Man or Astroman?, but just punk-basic playing full steam ahead with saxophone accompaniment reminiscent of The Rumblers.
While this is nothing to scour record shops or the internet to find, it is a competent if small sampling from a competent if underpractised instrumental combo.
