A Glorious Lethal Euphoria
The Mermen's 1995 instrumental CD, "A Glorious Lethal Euphoria", features the band's unique nouveau surf sound, amid Jim Thomas amped-up guitar thrash and the amazing bass of Allen Whitman. It's surf through and through, and yet it's not - the listener hears influences such as Neil Young and nods towards Sonic Youth, all drenched in reverb and dripping with melody. All in all, some of the most creative ideas thrown under the banner of 'surf music' in quite some time. "A Glorious Lethal Euphoria" is a mind-expanding experience to be sure, and at over seventy minutes, you'll be riding the waves of a new kind of tunage. Not your daddy's surf music.
