Various, Chunk number 1 (Crash the Luau) tape
Tone Deaf Teens, Tweaked and 7 degrees North supply a couple of tracks
each that demonstrate there's more to Hawaiian music than grass skirts
and gentle swaying. On side one the three bands stick to relatively
straight punk-pop---Offspring and a bit of RATM, the usual
suspects. But flip over and get a more interesting take on the
formula. Tweaked chop up their beats to give a lurching, catchy speedy
love song, "Idiot"; 7 degrees North mellow out and give us a funky
track reminiscent of those long-deceased tuneful Brummies, Onionhead
(who in a bizarre future-echo recorded a Hawaiian/surf track on
their first---and only?---12"). TDT finish things off with a Zappa-ed
up "Existential field trip (The mad burrito)".
