The Bustin' Burritos Live At Ugglan, Grade 3 of 5
Label: Bustin' Burritos CD

The Bustin' Burritos are an instro rock band from Kalmar, Sweden. Their music is a blend of surf and sci-fi cheese, with a healthy does of inventive arranging. The operative word is tweaky. This CD-R was captured live on a porta studio at Ugglan studios with a few friends in attendance. The mix is rough, and some tracks labor under indistinct sound, but the band is splendid. By the time they get into a good studio setting and carefully document what they are doing, they should create quite a stir.

Picks: Pablo Potemkin, Red Velvet Animals, Agent Mo Is Watching From A Spitfire, Rubber Along The Road, The Ghost Of Fireball Roberts

"Pablo Potemkin" grade 3/5

One drunk claps mercilessly, the synth launches a prog rock progression, and then the guitar comes in with rock tones and a slithery melody line in a thick was of original sounds. Some double picking and some original arranging too.

"Red Velvet Animals" grade 3/5

Crunchy lumbering guitar edge, intense whammified thickness, dark imagery, and disturbed robot keys. "Red Velvet Animals" sneaks into your covert mind, where it's safe from prying ears. Strangely intriguing.

"Agent Mo Is Watching From A Spitfire" grade 4/5

That Agent Mo sure must be an odd man out kinda fella. Tweaky, bongo pumped, angular, off balance, and kinda grodie. "Agent Mo Is Watching From A Spitfire" is a brilliant piece of original construction, with some sort of magnetic attraction. Cartoon gloomy.

"The Elimination Of Eugene" grade 3/5

Poor old Eugene is on the outs - permanently. "The Elimination Of Eugene" uses spy sounds and bongos, post robot tweakiness, and an almost Casio cheesiness. Nice track.

"An Evel Kneivel Event" grade 3/5

More circular than I envision Evel Kneivel to be, this nevertheless employs some shimmering guitar, some edgy chords, and a dark circular chord progression for a disturbed ride on a phantom bike.

"Rubber Along The Road" grade 4/5

Programmed percussion, big guitar vibrato throb chords, and a lumbering surfable melody. This is surf oriented, though you certainly would be excused for missing the link. Very original and very cool.

"The Incredible El Indio" grade 3/5

Violinski circusoid jangle for the computer age. It's kind of a tango, sort of a hoedown, and maybe a bit of a surf romp as well. A nightmare in the white water, with a flood of disturbing images.

"The Ghost Of Fireball Roberts" grade 4/5

A long string of sci-fi sonic chops from the keys precedes the lead guitar taking over. The most surfable track here, with strong guitar and a solid surf melody. Catchy and fun, and maybe a little over the top. The fingers fly on the guitar. Totally cool!

Ten tracks of entirely unusual music from Sweden's Bustin' Burritos. Instrumental, tweaky, and sometimes disturbing, and not surf, yet worth investigating.

"Trembling Tortillas" grade 3/5

Hand claps set off this edgy cowboy fantasy. "Trembling Tortillas" is a solid riff based hard driving rock instro.

"Insane Cobra Split The Wood" grade 3/5

A slow keyboard pumps out an accompaniment to the rising drama of the progression. More eerie and spooky than melodic.

"Russian Moustache" grade 2/5

"Russian Moustache" grinds and churns in a kind of inverted frat setting. Edgy and disturbed, with grindy nonmelodic guitar and cheesy organ.
Rock Instrumental Stereo

"The Sparetime Autopsist" grade 3/5

Keys warn of bandits just down the road. Kinda like a carnival of soulless guitars. Vibrato distortion, strange days on the midway, and drama. Most unusual.

Violinski circusoid jangle for the computer age. It's kind of a tango, sort of a hoedown, and maybe a bit of a surf romp as well. A nightmare in the white water, with a flood of disturbing images.

"Haunted By Henry Reverb" grade 3/5

Great title! Semi dramatic, colorful, and melodic. More jangle and distortion than reverb, and on the eerie side, yet inviting. The disturbed guitar-organ duet is both endearing and bothersome.
Rock Instrumental Stereo

"An Evel Knievel Event" grade 3/5

Whammy, extended chords, programmed percussion, and some intense twang. catchy in a postmodern world.

"May I Borrow Your Secret Agent?" grade 3/5

Tweaky sequenced keys, vibrato twang, and urgent messages for the home office. Quite weird, yet interesting.

The Bustin' Burritos - May I Borrow Your Secret Agent? Betyg 6/10

Från Kalmar kommer det instrumentala rockbandet The Bustin' Burritos. "May I Borrow Your Secret Agent?" är bandets femte demo och den är inspelad på en 8-kanals portastudio runt om i Kalmar i lägenheter, sovrum, vardagsrum etc.

Jag tycker att hela demon känns som ett soundtrack till någon fräck roadmovie. Det blandas hejvilt mellan surf, pop, rock och det görs på ett trevligt sätt. Låttitlarna är, som ni själva ser, råtuffa.

Man kan tänka sig att det ska bli väldigt tråkigt utan sång, och visst, ibland är det så. Men oftast händer det en massa saker i låtarana som gör att det inte alls känns tröttsamt. Det skulle vara kul att se grabbarna live då dom använder sig av "extra blip-blop ljud och sunkiga trummaskiner", som Glenn så fint uttrycker det.

Absolut värt att kolla upp, inte bara bandet, men även hemsidan. Den är ju för gullig.

The Bustin' Burritos - May I borrow your secret agent?

Skön 60-tals countrystils instrumentalrock. Det enda jag saknar är spridda rop med hård reverb. Demot är glatt och lättlyssnat, korta kärnfulla låtar och om dom är bra live lär dom vara helt fenomenala. Lär mer på http://bustinburritos.tripod.com
