When I brought my band to California from Australia last year I had plans to record a film clip of Mrs Moto, from my 2013 album "Going to Kaleponi", hopefully with Paul Johnson. I ran it past him and he agreed.
We decided to film at Huntington Beach. It was the perfect day for it. We got some great footage along and under the pier and also live as part of my set. Afterwards Paul surprised me by asking if we'd like him to edit the clip. We jumped at the chance to have him do it.
Paul went above and beyond - sourcing live audio of us playing the song onstage (thanks Chrome Oxide) and some extra footage from the Purple Orchid (thanks Unsteady Freddie -- would you hire a cameraman called "unsteady"?).
We love the clip. I hope you do too.
Thanks to dp for tipping us off to this nearly 30 minute video of the Bambi Molesters. Check out the forum thread for an English translation graciously provided by Ivan.

Performance footage by:
It is on Time-Warner Cable Channel 18 in the Riverside-Moreno Valley-Perris area or free on Youtube.
Tip of the hat to Sven of Bang! Mustang! for dropping this bomb on us. This is an entire Los Twang Marvels! set from a recent show in Brazil. You can skip ahead to about the 11:00 minute mark where the band takes the stage. The video and sound quality are excellent, not to mention the performance! Enjoy!
Edit: January 8, 2014. The original video is long gone, but it has resurfaced at this link!
Thanks to MidwestSurfGuy here is a playlist of The Penetrators playing WAIF radio in 1997. Thanks so much Guy!
Here is a playlist of the fantastic Eddie & The Showmen tribute set from Winter Surf Fest 2013. The band consists of John Benton (guitar), John Blair (guitar), Dick Dodd (drums), Jim Frias (sax), Jonpaul Balak (bass), and Matt Quilter (guitar). Video by SG101 user darrenk. Thanks Darren!
A huge thank-you to HBKahuna for posting this video of an interview with Eddie Bertrand (Belairs, Eddie & The Showmen) by Tiki Tena at KCR radio at Clint Beachwood's show in 2007. This is a fascinating interview with details about the early days of the Belairs and meeting Leo Fender.
We love you Eddie!
I've put together a video playlist of the live Penetrators videos Ferenc (PolloGuitar) uploaded to YouTube recently. From Ferenc's YouTube description for the first video, Redlined:
The Penetrators surf music band hailed from Tuscaloosa, Alabama. They were one of the most popular and influential bands of surf music's "Third Wave", and released 2 CDs, a single, a live DVD and made numerous appearances on tribute and compilation CDs. It's a tragedy that guitarists and brothers, Spanky and Rip, died so young. In July of 1996, the quartet traveled to the Bay Area for a few shows including a live KFJC broadcast, a show at the infamous Purple Onion, and a show at the The Paradise Lounge. A VHS video of the Paradise just surfaced, and I'm going to put the whole set on YouTube. I encourage you to seek out The Penetrators music Enjoy.
The new documentary "Reverb Junkies" screened for the very first time ever last month at the BBC Music Video Fest in Norfolk England. From the BBC:
This film is all about passion - a love of Surf Music. Made on the shores of California and sent direct to our Festival for a first ever showing. A music phenomenon that has travelled the world, but keeps true to its Californian 60s surf roots.
