“Always Clean And Fresh
Reviewed by: Justin Hayes
I’m really digging The Orions’ debut EP Always Clean And Fresh. It’s a high-octane gasser, filled with four tracks of supercharged instrumental surf music, on cassette tape.
Whoa, did I just say, “tape?” Yup, tape. I can dig that, too. First was vinyl, now cassette. I’m also digging the retro wave of recording mediums. It’s a blast from the past and I love it.
And The Orions? They’re four cool guys from Israel, playing some very cool music.
The Orions are:
David Miretski – Guitar
Itai Alzaradel – Guitar
‘Mediterranean Buddha’ Ezra – Bass
Guy Offenbach – Drums
The Orions have done a stellar job with their debut EP. Always Clean And Fresh boasts four outstanding original tracks of music. After listening to Always Clean And Fresh at least a dozen times, I’ve come to the only possible conclusion there is: I can’t wait to hear more from these guys in the future. Front row, center … sock it to me, baby.

Always Clean And Fresh - Wham, bam, thank you ma’am. Balls-to-the-wall action all the way. The Orions waste no time getting down to business with their title track. It’s an urgent, predatory and massive tune. Always Clean And Fresh has a whodunit mystique about it and would be a perfect soundtrack in an espionage flick. Surf, spy, totally kick-ass and totally cool.
El Don Compressor - Opens with the sounds of combat. Then, with more power than a tsunami, all hell bursts forth. The Orions really get with the program in El Don Compressor. Man, can they ever play. Absolutely terrific, bodacious, high-energy surf tune, punctuated by fabulous musicianship and highlighted by some awesome double picking.
Dado Beach - Damn, damn, damn. The Orions are great, great, great. Dado Beach is another stellar work of art. It’s a massively powerful surf number, driven by potent performances by everyone. Get a load of the exchange between the guitar and bass at 1:02. Hot damn, hot damn, hot damn. Love it, love it, love it.
Wax On, Fuck Off - This is a very cool surf tune with a very cool, unique and imaginative bass guitar ending. Once again, super high-quality musicianship is the name of the game. I don’t want to sound like a broken record, but The Orions are remarkable. I think they could play just about any kind of music and make my jaw drop. I’d even listen to Martian rockin’-polka-hillbilly-funk, if these guys were playing it.
