Instrumentally Disturbed

More dynamic post-Tarantino surf-rock from Ben Rogers’ Instrumental Asylum! Following the critically acclaimed debut album “Welcome to the Instrumental Asylum” and then “Reverb Rehab” (Top Roots Release of 2007 – Rhythms Magazine), comes “Instrumentally Disturbed” – a mix of the band’s latest compositions together with a frantic surf/garage version of The Exciters’ sixties hit Tell Him, a distortion-laden re-interpretation of Django Reinhardt’s last composition “Anouman”, and a rendition of the classic “La Mer” (Beyond the Sea). Surf guitar legend Martin Cilia (The Atlantics) features on two tracks, as well as US drummer Al Kash (Commander Cody, Dave Hole, Savoy Brown, etc), who also guested on Reverb Rehab.
