Credit the recording skills of Steve Albini
for the lean, dirty funk sound which distinguishes Sport Fishin'
from prior Shadowy Men
records. While the tempos remain spry and the dominant guitar sound is still built on vibrato, the all-instrumental songs owe more to Link Wray
than to Dick Dale
this time out; indeed, they even declare "We're Not a Fucking Surf Band" on one of the tracks.
