Brian: Well it is definitely true that only a small fraction of that 8000 are active. And a lot of them seem to be spammers.

SG101 Podcast #8 Now Available!

Submitted by Brian on July 25, 2009.
Site News
This just in from Danny Snyder:

Just in the nick of time, here's our latest podcast featuring the bands that will be performing at this year's SurfGuitar101 convention in Los Alamitos. We're also featuring the first half of an interview Warren Binder (Captain Springfield) conducted with Ted Pilgrim where they discuss the new Satan's Pilgrims' record. There's lots more songs and another surf classic highlight so get your reverb on.

Lady Reverb and I want to extend special thanks to Warren, Ted, Ivan, Ryan, Jeff and Brian for all their help. And our apologies to The Reventlos whose song accidentally was omitted from this podcast. It's doubly unfortunate as they are so generously donating the equipment for the convention - so hats off to The Reventlos.


Head on over to our podcast page to download it now. The podcast is in .m4a format. PC users can use the piece-of-junk Quicktime player, or the super awesome VLC media player, to listen. An .mp3 version may soon follow, check back later. Enjoy!

The Wet-Tones in Austria

Submitted by rocknroll on July 05, 2009.
Show Reports

We had 3 dates in Austria (we live in Italy), so we played in some clubs near Graz and Wien, we had good times playing after a rockabilly band called "Curtis Jensen."

This guy is a really lovely rockin'  friend, he found out where to play (he's from Wien), a drum set (a very low white pearl Gretsch), and all the p.a. He took us to hotels-restaurants-everything, and  help us in a visit to Wien in the afternoon before playing in the evening.

He's the more terrifying man on  a double bass I've ever seen, he showed me how to do the 4th slap in a note! Outstanding, a jet black double bass with tiki and bamboo painting on the edge, absolutely outstanding! Tom the guitar player with a B.Setzer matte black Gretsch guitar.

A great man.THANX CURTIS !

Bruno the Wet-Tones
