Surfadelic Presents: THE BOSS INSTROS !!! [Draggin’ & Surfin’ Instrumentals by The Boss Martians]

.

Alright fellow surfers, summer’s almost gone but hey, there’s enough time for a brand new Surfadelic collection. As you know The BOSS MARTIANS from Seattle, Wa. are one of the very best garage/surf bands from the 90’s and my favs. They started in 1992. as surf/hot rod revival group and recorded several LP’s and 45’s in that style but by the late 90’s and some line-up changes, BOSS MARTIANS evolved into harder rockin’ power pop/punk gang. This Surfadelic comp. is a collection of instrumental tunes gathered from singles, EP’s and albums recorded between 1992. and 2002., from straight surfin’ “On The Rocks” single to garage/mod instro “Gold Diggin'” from Making The Rounds LP.

All in all, 30 trax of all-instro surfin’/hot rod action by one of the best 90’s garage rockers, so surfers don’t you dare miss it, Dig!!!

SATAN’S PILGRIMS – Frankenstomp (Singles, Rarities & More 1993 – 2014)

Satan's Pilgrims - Frankenstomp Singles, Rarities, & More

“These Oregon devils truly smoke like hellfire.”

”Taking their name from the 1960s 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 Quentin Tarantino’s Pulp Fiction, which reintroduced the world to Dick Dale’s “Misirlou,” and rode it to nominal commercial success via essential outings like Around the World with Satan’s Pilgrims (1997) and their eponymous fifth studio long-player (1999). The group disbanded in 2000, but reconvened for a series of shows in 2005.” [AllMusic]

”In this collection included are songs from some of their singles, compilations, and live recordings, but most exciting to their fans, is the inclusion of previously unreleased tracks from the archives, and songs from local Portland cassettes, including their very first release-a six song cassette originally put out by a then new upstart label in Portland called Cavity Search Records.”

DAVIE ALLAN & THE ARROWS – Bykedelics (1999)

Davie Allan & Arrows - Bykedelics 1a

Third in a row of Davie Allan 90’s comeback albums (after ”Loud Loose and Savage” and ”Fuzz Fest”). 14 cuts of cinematic mosrite fuzzbox guitar-sound driven instros. Not so surfin’ but rather a modern garage rockin’ sounding instro venture influenced by Henri Mancini, Morricone and yeah!, ’60s & ’70s biker flicks. Loads of cool stuff begin with fuzzed-out drama ‘‘Space Rift” and then you got ”Fender Bender”,  ” Encounter”,  moto-bikin’ ”Another Moped In Schenectady”, ”Fast And Loose”, floatin’ fuzz lounge of ”Organized” and couple of re-recorded Allen 60’s tunes as wah-wah pedal mutated ”Theme From The Unknown”. This stuff is almost identical to ”The Arrow Dynamic Sounds of… ” album issued on Total Energy rec. but with different track order and few different tunes. Bykadelics at Surfadelic, Dig!!!

”Modern instrumental rock album with lots of cool fuzz guitar”

THE ULTRAS – Surf-Pop-Sludge [1993]

MI0002122953

 

”THE ULTRAS are a mostly-instrumental rock’n’roll trio from San Francisco formed in l988 by guitarist Eric “Sludge” Lenchner. They call their sound “Surf-Pop-Sludge”.

In their early days, the Ultras played the “new lounge” supper clubs in San Francisco utilizing their diverse musical palette of Surf, Rockabilly, Salsa, Pop, Blues, Country, Jazz, and Psychedelic styles. This was a low-volume sound with the instrumentation of electric guitar, acoustic “string” bass, and brushed drums.

In the l990’s, as the Ultras began to play more and more original music (at a more electrified volume), they moved from the lounges to the original music showcase clubs of San Francisco and Northern California. The Ultras toured the West Coast several times and shared the bill numerous times with surf music legend Dick Dale.

1993 saw the release of the Ultras’ CD, SURF-POP-SLUDGE Produced by Scott Mathews, the man responsible for the Dick Dale “comeback” CD” on Hightone, “Surf-Pop-Sludge” was a college radio hit, going Top Ten on numerous stations throughout the U.S.

In 1995 the Ultras stopped playing live shows due to guitarist Lenchner’s hearing damage. They have continued to record, and their latest projects are “Rocket Jockey” (video game), “Attack of the New Killer Surf Guitars” (compilation featuring Ultras’ track “THE ULTRA FACTOR”), and “Just Write” (feature film starring Sherilyn Fenn – soundtrack features “Steel Twist” by The Ultras).”

Hey surfers! Check out this fine surfin’ instro slab I just found recently. The Ultras can be spotted on some 90’s surf revival comps as ‘Beyond The Beach’ or ‘Gnarly Reef’, but on ‘Rocket Jockey’ [game soundtrack with Dick Dale] they put some killer instros as ”Death Tube”,  ”Surrounded by Assassins”, ”Magic Wand”, ”Rocket Boy”, ”Vaque Ton” which caught my ear. This package contain their sole 15 trax lp + 7 bonus cuts added for your complete listening pleasure. Don’t miss it!

BARRACUDAS – Through The Mysts Of Time [Surf-Punk/Power Pop]

Barracudas1

 

”This London-based Anglo-American band was formed in 1979 and scored a U.K. chart hit in 1980 with the neo-surf song “Summer Fun.” Their punkish attitude comes from a red-hot, enthusiastic amateurism. The band melded together the sounds of pop surfers like Jan & Dean with hip urban post-garage rockers like Flamin’ Groovies and song-oriented ’60s ensembles like the Byrds. The result of this formula is infectious, unexpected, and raw. This collection comprises demos, outtakes, and alternate versions from the same era as the Drop Out and Meantime LPs.”

“Rougher and rawer than this old English power pop quartet’s otherwise fun singles and LPs, this 71-minute, 25-track collection of earlier demos, outtakes, and other rarities replaces such works as 1981’s Drop Out and 1983’s Mean Time as the definitive statement on a truly underrated ’60s-infested band. The Barracudas were looking back in the midst of a punk revolution — covering Burt Bacharach and Hal David’s “Little Red Book” just like Love or the Standells — and succeeding just the same, probably because, like the unrelated but not totally dissimilar mod revival bands of the time, they brought a purely modern crunch and crackle to the thick guitars underneath the songs about girls. This is boy/girl punkish pop before it became an ’80s/’90s staple”[Jack Rabid]
