Murder On Beaver Street

by The Route 66 Killers

Dark early 60s sounding instrumental surf music. The perfect soundtrack to those science fiction/horror movies you saw as a kid. With fast double picked guitars and a hard surf beat. This is beach music from Hell.

ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
The Flagstaff Times
July 24th 2001

The Route 66 Killers were formed back in the year 2000, when four Russian serial killers met in a smoky ramshackle bar in the small mountain town of Flagstaff, Arizona, just off of Route 66. Having escaped a Russian prison in Siberia, they fled for the United States. All share common interests: murder, voodoo, and surfing. Soon they went on to terrorize the inhabitants of Flagstaff with a series of grizzly murders and zombie-style surf tunes. The local law enforcement has been powerless in the apprehension of the gruesome four, who continue to leave nothing but corpses and mayhem.

The Route 66 Killers consists of the scum of the earth: there's Sergei, the ring leader of the gang. Sergei was a hit man for the Russian mafia, and carried out 42 hits in Moscow before his eventual incarceration. His weapon of choice is the lead guitar. Boris, hailing from St. Petersburg, was known as the "Nozhe" or "The Knife" in his home town, adding 20 people to his list of victims before he was apprehended. His weapon of choice is the bass. Ivan or Ivan Gryohznii (Ivan the Terrible) comes from the small village of Niledovo north of Moscow, where his massacre of the entire village caught the attention of the world. His weapon of choice is the rhythm guitar. And then there is the Animal or Zhivotnoye. Not much is know of his origins. Coming from some remote area in Siberia, the Animal brutally killed 19 people with his bare hands in a two year spree. His weapon of choice is the drums.

The music of the Route 66 Killers is dark instrumental surf. When listened to long enough, the listener/victim slowly and painfully dies. However, there have been reports of the deceased coming back from the dead and craving human flesh.
It is assumed that this marauding gang of murderers currently resides in Flagstaff Arizona, the focal point of an ongoing manhunt since their arrival here. If you have any information leading to the arrest of these madmen, please lock your doors and contact the local authorities at once.

Ghoul Surfing
For those with a fondness for surf music in the style of the Munster's Theme, look no further. This delightful CD is able to deliver just enough of a macabre feeling without being too far over the edge. This CD has been uploaded to the iPod and hasn't stopped rotating in it since it was received.

Down with death, up with the Route 66 Killers
I know there is a link between things horror / monstrous, and the minor key surf sound, but don't let the name and death packaging fool you: these are some positively good tunes. If you like that sonorous guitar, do what I did: get the album and hide the package, because the Route 66 Killers will slay you, so to speak.

Surf music from the beach....I mean the grave!
This instrumental surf cd is extremely cool. However, it's not the upbeat, sappy, let's go to the beach surf. No, this is let's go visit the Munster's surf. Lot's of gloomy tunes, but all instrumental. Maybe this is a new genre of music called surf-blues. I have never really read much on this band, and this type of ghoul music generally doesn't appeal to me. However,if you like surf music, or instrumentals in general, I think you'll like this cd. For me, I'm now waiting for the next release. I'd suggest you buy this cd before the band sends someone over to your house to perform experiments on your brain!

Surf that doesn't suck.
I normally don't have an ear for flat-out surf (a lot of it bores the hell outta me) but this cd really kept me interested. Really dark stuff, not the same old cheesy riffs that you've heard a thousand times. It's refreshing when somebody can breathe some life into what seemed like a festering corpse of a genre and make it demoniacally enjoyable. Good listening for plotting revenge; highly recommended.
