KIM SALMON & THE SURREALISTS ~ HIT ME WITH THE SURREAL FEEL

Kim Salmon took his influences with him when he put Scientists to bed. His lo-fi, low-budget debut with the Surrealists (featuring the classic original lineup of Kim Salmon, Tony Pola and Brian Hooper), like much of his former band's best material, is suffused by the spirit of Captain Beefheart and the Stooges (and it's rumored that it only cost $60 to record.)

The songs, many of which are saturated by slide guitar, shimmy, shake, and slither (more like unruly lizards than formal "compositions"). "Feel" and "Intense" are particularly single-minded in their crazed, Suicide-like attack. The counterpoint to those howlers can be found in Salmon's spooky, faraway-sounding covers of "Blue Velvet," "Torture," and "Devil in Disguise." Then there are the three tracks that play off the album's title: "Surreal Feel," "Surreel Feel," and "Surreal Feal". Hit Me With the Surreal Feel is a lot of freaky fun with its goofy references to Dada, surrealism, and such. The recording was originally released in 1988 by Australia's Black Eye Records in a limited edition of 1,000 (some on blue vinyl).
