I just discovered that somebody shot videos of the some of the seminars from the SurferJoe Festival 2014, so you can now learn everything about playing surf music directly from Dusty, Lorenzo, Dave and last but not least Mr. Paul Johnson himself. Enjoy!

A big thank you to simoncoil for bringing this amazing video to our attention. This is Laika & The Cosmonauts, on the German TV show Absolut Live, September 15, 1997. Some of these songs ended up on their live album Laika Sex Machine. Enjoy!

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.

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!

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!
