Songs Of The Cows
The Mermen's 1996 instrumental CD, "Songs Of The Cows", forges a turbulent surf sound on its seven tracks, led off by the powerful "Curve" and anchored by the epic, rambling 11 minute closing piece "Brain Wash". Guitarist and producer Jim Thomas double picks his way through the oceanically inspired pieces, redefining surf music in the late '90s with the help of bassist Allen Whitman and drummer Martyn Jones. Blending psychedelia and surf is what the Mermen do best throughout "Songs Of The Cows", and up-tempo tracks such as "Meander" and "Curve" set the stage for some melancholy soundscapes previously known only to the creatures of the deep. Challenging stuff.
