There's a relatively new series over at Rock 'n' Soul Ichiban. They're calling it Instrumental 45 of the Week, A rather wide net that is, leaving it open for half of all singles ever recorded. But this is Rock 'n' Soul Ichiban, who you can count on for things worth hearing. Last week it was patron saint Link Wray and "Comanche", a damn fine cut you should lap up. I, for one, waited anxiously for six days wondering how they were going to top that. But of course, I should have known. You can only top that with the most half-assed version of "Apache" ever committed to vinyl, at least in production value. I'll tell you, if these hipster lo-fi bands of today had any balls they'd do it like Teen Sound Inc, who is credited with production. I think Teen Sound Inc is code for "the guy holding the microphone of the portable cassette". Something like that. I'm pretty sure it was the same guy who produced the Germs' "Forming".
