Mrs. Moto by Martin Cilia featuring Paul Johnson

Submitted by guitar on January 25, 2014.

Martin Cilia writes:

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.

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!

The Penetrators live in 1996!

Submitted by Brian on November 17, 2012.
Featured Videos

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.
