DAN SARTAIN: Dan Sartain Vs. the Serpients: CD

I’m not sure what this is. The liner notes say that this Dan Sartain guy recorded this himself and played most of the instruments, except when he was helped out by some semi-famous musicians like Gar Wood and Mario Rubalcada (Rocket From the Crypt). My theory is that it’s a huge inside joke made by the incestuous San Diego/Swami Records scene, like Beehive & the Barracudas. The music is basically stripped-down roots rock, and it’s pretty good. I hear some echoes of RFTC and Hot Snakes, and maybe a bit of the Starvations here and there. –Not Josh
