"Insect Surfers have always been far more than just a generic surf combo, dating back to 1979, in Washington, D.C. Part of an energetic scene that included Bad Brains, the Surfers appeared on bills with Joan Jett, The Stranglers and Iggy Pop, and their rampaging instrumentals reflected the manic intensity of the early punk era. When Arnson relocated to L.A. in 1985, he reconfigured the group, infusing his febrile surf originals with surges of psychedelia and appearing on bills with such inspirations as Link Wray and The Ventures. But Insect Surfers really outdo themselves on their new magnum opus, Infra Green -- their first album in more than a decade -- an aquatic-themed travelogue under the waves where they're accompanied by such stellar guests as Davie Allan and The Bel-Airs' Paul Johnson. Arnson and Michael Abraham's dual lead-guitar sorties infuse tracks like "Orion Canyon" with a majestic, wordless spaghetti Western eloquence.
