Wave Invasion in 20th Century Guitar

Here's what reviewer Robert Silverstein had to say about Wave Invasion in the March 2005 edition of 20th Century Guitar magazine: "Veteran guitarist Vince Motel puts his collection to the test on the first album with his band Wave Invasion. The back CD panel of 'Which Way To The Beach?' lists an array of vintage guitars used by Motel including his candy apple red 1962 Fender Jazzmaster guitar . . . Motel & Co. are masters of the vintage studio sound and the cool effects they use to get it like the strange sounding Hiwatt Echo Theremin. A round of sure-fire Motel originals mix tastefully with covers of Danny Elfman ("The Simpsons"), Randy Bachman ("Undone"), Max Steiner ("A Summer Place"), Ennio Morricone ("The Good The Bad And The Ugly") and The Beatles ("Eleanor Rigby"). Taking the guitar instrumental sound forward, Motel makes these songs his own on a five star surf-rock set."
