Song of the Day 12/31/08

Our top 666 songs of alltime countdown continues, one day at a time all the way to #1. New Years Eve’s is #574:

The Coffin Daggers – Mr. Moto

The best version of what may be the greatest surf rock instrumental ever, even if the Coffin Daggers never officially released this particular one. Theirs is scorching punk rock with distorted guitar and eerie Wurlitzer organ, sounding something like Hunter S. Thompson gingerly getting out of bed, gun in hand, the shadows just beginning to fall outside. Not at the usual mp3 sites, although frequently bootlegged. Surf around (pun intended) and see what you find!
