Shallow End Re-Dedicated to Rip and Spanky

Submitted by Brian on August 31, 2009.
Site News
We recently lost Brian Rogers, aka Spanky Twangler, of the Penetrators. This is especially tragic because Brian was the brother and bandmate of Scott Rogers, aka Rip Thrillby, who passed in an auto accident several years ago. Brian had a battle with cancer that he detailed on his myspace and facebook pages. Brian showed an amazing amount of courage, humanity, and faith in his battle, and we will miss him terribly.

Both Brian and Scott were larger than life figures in the surf community, both off and on-line. The Shallow End forum, our off-topic place for friendly chit-chat, was dedicated to Rip shortly after this site went live. It now seems only fitting to re-dedicate The Shallow End to both Rip and Spanky. I never met these fine gentlemen in person, but their loss was felt very deeply by myself and many other surf music fans. Thank you guys for your time with us; the humor, creativity, and musicianship you displayed is a true inspiration for us all.

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!

We're Moving To A New Server!

Submitted by Brian on May 23, 2009.
Site News
Thanks to your generous donations we are doing some upgrading around here. SG101 is moving to a new server. I'll start the move early Monday, May 25th. It may take several hours for the domain name to server address change to propagate around the internet. To prevent forum posts from getting lost, I'll just shut down the current site early Monday. After a few hours you should see us running again.

I've done these domain name transfers before. Sometimes they go fairly quickly and I've also seen them take 24 hours. It also depends on where you live. Hopefully it will be quick. And you Americans should be out celebrating Memorial Day in any event. :) If you want to check the status, I'll post updates to my twitter feed.

The new server will provide us more growing room and will be a good platform to launch a long overdue upgrade to the site software. Thanks everyone for your support and patience during this transition!
