"In The Dark"
Somewhere between surf and space is a point of sonic delight. That's
where The Vanduras (Geoffrey and Gary Brandin) make their music.
Geoffrey Brandin plays guitar in the classic surf style and covers
the percussion and keyboard parts. But for us steelers, Gary Brandin
is the real star here. He's also one of the most often heard steel
players in the world right now, thanks to his work with The Blue
Hawaiians and the hit cartoon series "Spongebob Squarepants".
The CD is a mellow mix of surf, Hawaiian, spaghetti western and
space music, all done in hi-fi so lush you'll want to go out and
buy new stereo equipment! Gary's tone is often reminiscent of Jerry
Byrd's best records. Geoffrey's big guitar sound reminds me of Billy
Strange. They wrote 11 of the CD's 13 instrumentals, and none are
throwaways. This relaxing CD is destined to become one of
my all-time favorites.
