Savage Instrumental Stylings.

Is too much garage rock never enough? Like your music without those pesky words or vocals? Wish every guitarist played as violently as Link Wray? Always think that Dick Dale didn't use enough distortion? Do you enjoy listening to Henry Mancini at ear-splitting volumes? If you're discerning enough to answer affirmatively, then be sure not to miss the upcoming shows from The Howlin' Thurstons.

Savage instrumental rock for people who like their cocktails shaken and stirred, The Thurstons play a mix of high-octane originals and choice covers. For the last several months, they've been a fixture on Bill Kelly's legendary "Teenage Wasteland" show on WFMU. If you make the gigs, be sure to request their jaw-dropping version of the MC5's "Looking At You" and surf-inflected demolition of "Motorhead."
