New Gandy Dancer Review of Sandstorm

Led by guitarist Ivan Pongracic (Space Cossacks), this is a new offshoot on 12 original twangers plus a cover of The Atlantics' "Express To Baghdad". Strong burning guitars all the way - inevitably similar to the Space Cossacks from where they emanate - and good worthwhile originals like "El Caliph", "Ricochet" and a fine "Desert Drums" contribute to making this a grand debut album where Ivan and the boys have a good grasp of what they're doing. We hope this isn't all we hear from a promising lineup whith a surfload of playing ability.
