Hi there fellow surfers. It’s time for a little “Surf Revival” recapitulation. As you know there are thousands of “New Generation” surf influenced bands all over the world, it’s kinda like reverb pandemonium out there and ya know I’ve posted many but hey… This is my pick, 15 records I dig the most, from 80’s surf punks to, fuzzed-out garage surf, lounge, sci-fi or straightforward surf rockin’. As you will see they are mostly from 90’s. So, here we go!
This London-based Anglo-American surf-punkers were a part of early 80’s garage revival scene. They recorded several LPs and 45’s [with ”Drop Out With The Barracudas” as their most famous slab], style ranged from surf influenced punk to power pop. This here is a ’85 Franch Lp collection of their early singles with surf-punk anthems as Summer Fun, His Last Summer, Surfers Are Back, Chevy Baby, Kgb, I Can’t Pretend, Rendez-Vous… From my point of view, this is their best Lp………………………………..(((0)))
Missouri’s finest, the Untamed Youth (Deke Dickerson, MACE, Steve “Sammy” Rager, Joel Trueblood) is one of the best groups from 90’s garage/surf revival wave. They played energetic & fun 60’s influenced frat rock/hot rod/surf music with loads of real cool covers, perfect for wyld beach parties. ”Untamed Melodies” is a best of collection of trax from their first three 1988-1992 Norton lps and 45’s………………………………..(((0)))
DAVIE ALLAN, 60’s “King Of Fuzz” returned in the 90’s with the brand new garage punk sound and albums as “Loud, Loose And Savage”, “Fuzz Fest”, “The Arrow Dynamic Sounds Of” and ”Skaterhater” [with The Phantom Surfers], the top instro slabs for new garage/surf generation. This is his first comeback album with recordings from the late 80’s and “Old Neck And New Strings” LP on Dionysus records………………………….(((0)))
Surfin’ sounds from the blazing coasts of Sweden. These 90’s Scandinavian surfers are big fans of Dick Dale, Ronny & The Daytonas, Beach Boys, Super Stocks & hot rod. This is their ’94 debut LP on blue vinyl, a cool mix of garage/pop/surf vocal tunes and instros. Go Where The Action Is! …………………………………………..(((0)))
Taking their name from the 60s B-movie Satan’s Sadists, Portland, Oregon’s Satan’s Pilgrims’ spirited blend of retro-surf and foot-stomping garage rock evokes the raw power and instrumental prowess of the Ventures, the Sonics, the Wailers, and the Kingsmen. It also draws from horror movies, Joe Meek productions, and the British Invasion. Like contemporaries and labelmates the Fathoms and Space Cossacks, the band caught the resurgent early ’90s surf rock wave brought forth by the arrival of Tarantino’s Pulp Fiction. This is bands ’94. debut with cool instros as Que Honda, Surf Lyre, John’s Moods, Peter Lorre ……………………..(((0)))
Smokin’ ’95. debut by those mask-wearing instrumental madmen! Modern surf-rock with a nostalgic twist that draws influence from all corners of the 50’s and 60’s guitar instrumental landscape – Shadows, Link Wray, The Ventures. Lots of energy and a fun listen that is consistent from start to finish. Favorite trax: Jetty Motel, University Blvd., Calhoun Surf…Utterly Fantastic!!! ……………………………….(((0)))
“Project Infinity” is the second full-length studio album by Man or Astro-man?. The cover is a reworking of Attilio Mineo’s “Man in Space with Sounds”, which was used as the soundtrack to the futuristic “Bubbleator” exhibit at the 1962. In my opinion this is their best album, great space-garage-surf-punk with Pixies influeces! Fav trax: Sferic Waves, Escape Velocity, Transmissions From Venus, Put Your Finger In The Socket …………………………………..(((0)))
Huevos Rancheros were 90’s Canadian surfin’/garage punk band that played an instrumental blend of rockabilly, surf, grunge and punk music. They recorded four Lp’s and bunch of 45’s I’ve already posted on my old blog. “Dig In!” is their second album from 1995. with cool instros as Whiteout In Wyoming, Secret Recipe, Where’s The Bathroom, 64 Slices Of American Cheeze ……………………………(((0)))
I’ve really hesitated between their 2nd album “Suburban Savage” and this one their debut from 1996., both fine slabs. Anyways, Tiki Tones played a real cool mix of 60’s surf and lounge infuenced music with their Hawaiian button up shirts fashion. Fav tunes: Sneaky Tiki, Joe 90, Tiki Hydromatic 350… It’s a cocktail time alrigh! …………(((0)))
13 BOSS Tales from these garage hot rod surf Martians. This is their 2nd LP from 1997. Evan Foster is one of the best guitar-slingers these days. Nearly every track is a winner. “Hot Foot” is a great opener in the vein of Davie Allan. “Mean Model A” is one of the coolest hot rod songs ever! This LP become something of a hot rod surf classic from 90’s. Favorite tracks: Hot Foot, Haywire!, She’s Creepy!, Mean Model A, Double A Growler, Tombstone Track, Coffin And A Six Pack. Great !!! ………………………………………(((0)))
Emerging from the Southern California surf scene in the summer of 1994, The Bomboras play a blend of classic surf and garage/trash-rock. Highly motivating, their songs burn and steam with energy throughout the fifteen tracks on this Lp. This was their last album from 1998. and in my opinion their best. It’s kinda like a concept album with space and horror themes mixed with organ & fuzz sounds. Kicked out with great fuzzed-out opener “Land of the One Percenters” continuing with other cool stuff as War Of The Sattelites, Project Zero, Night of the Bomboras and great cover of The Ventures “Hot Line”. ………….(((0)))
A surf-rock opera about a biker killin’ skateboarders how cool is that?! Well, Davie Allen teamed up with The Phantom Surfers to record this killer fuzzed-out/reverbed-up surf opera in three acts! Great garage/surf instros as Curb Job, Sidewalk City, Skaterhater, The End Of A Skater, (The Sound Of) Breaking Glas mixed with fun vocal tunes as You Meet The Nicest People On A Harley or Murder Can Be Fun. This is pretty much A MUST! ……………(((0)))
Croatia’s number one surf band in a head on collision with Ennio Morricone and Dick Dale and a helping hand from REM’s Peter Buck, Scott McCaughey, Chris Eckman from the Walkabouts and Eduoardo ‘Speedo’ Martinez from the Flaming Lips. This is their third and best LP from 2001. Spaghetti-Spy Surfadelic sounds! ………………………………(((0)))
A side project from his full-time job as singer/guitarist/songwriter for garage punk revivalists the Boss Martians, Evan Foster’s debut solo release is a textbook example of instrumental roots rock & roll six-string slinging. Heavily influenced by surf in general and Dick Dale in particular, especially on the raging “Glass Packed & Fully Stacked”. Other fav tunes are Hearse Full Of Souls, Slidin’, She Rides A Chopper, Surfer’s Anthem, Embrujada… Cool mix of garage punk and surf instros. …………………………………..(((0)))
This is the sound of cold surf, a frigid flavour of cool Scandinavian melancholy that never sounded more suitable for the surfrighteous segment than just now. This comes across the instance you smack the laser to the plastic and let it all out. ‘It’s OK’ there are fifteen moving melodies of frozen ferociousness, solemn serenity, and sheer cold imstrumentality. ‘The first actual instrumental surf group in Denmark. The quintet is true to the untamed and raw American sound from the early 60’s – But with some strong visual strokes from the universe of 50’s and 60’s western and b-movie. (((0)))
