Dick Dodd Passes Away at Age 68

Submitted by Brian on November 30, 2013.
Surf Scene News

Dick Dodd, former Mouseketeer, drummer for the Belairs, Eddie & The Showmen, and later the garage band The Standells ("Dirty Water"), has passed away at age 68. It was only recently announced that Dick had stage four cancer, and a GoFundeMe support page was created.

Today, his attorney, Peggi Collins wrote on the support page:

It is with a heavy heart that I have to report that Dickie lost his battle last night. He had contracted pneumonia and just wasn't strong enough to fight it. Please remember him in your prayers and consider adding to this fund which his family desperately needs to offset the great expense of his illness.

If you can afford it, please consider contributing to the fund to help Dick's family with their expenses.

In recent years Dick was active in the surf music scene, appearing and performing at various events, notably a benefit for guitarist Eddie Bertrand. Please join SurfGuitar101 in thanking Dick Dodd for his amazing contributions to surf music.

Midwest Publications Announces New Book On Surf & Beach Music Autographs

Submitted by Brian on November 22, 2013.
Surf Scene News

Midwest Publications has announced the forthcoming new book by Tom Tourville titled, “Sun, Sand, Surf & Sidewalls- Looking Back At Surf & Summer Music As Seen Through Autographs.”

The book, the first of its type, focuses on classic surf music artists from the early 1960's.

It covers over 190 groups/artists with over 430 autographs noted and displayed, all on 100 pages of surfin’ fun. Included are many rare and never before seen autographs, photos, and surf music memorabilia.

This represents the most complete surf music autograph book ever published. This is Tourville’s twenty third published book. It’s a great guide and collectable for surf music fans and autograph collectors.

The introductions for the book were written by Jerry LeMire of the Hondells “Little Honda” and Kevin Mullay, one of the nations top music autograph authorities/collectors.

Leading music journals and newspapers have had this to say about Tourville, “Tourville is a research wizard.” “He is a premier musicologist”, and “Tourville knows his stuff and has a real passion for music research”. Tom is a well respected music columnist, that has been writing for national and Midwest based publications for over 35 years.

His life long love and interest in the surf and hot rod music scene of the early 60's has driven him to create and publish this new book.

The book is available from Midwest Publications at P.O. Box 404, Spirit Lake, Iowa 51360 for $19.50 post paid in the U.S. It can also be found on Amazon.com.

Surf Nut! 7" EP Featuring The Surfites & The Thunderchiefs

Submitted by Double-Crown-Records on June 17, 2013.
Surf Scene News

V/A - Surf Nut! Surfites & Thunderchiefs 7" EP (Double Crown / Wormtone)

We're incredibly stoked to have released a fabulous new 7" EP featuring The Surfites and The Thunderchiefs, containing two brand new songs from each band! It's a joint effort with Double Crown and Wormtone Records, and will definitely be one of the most talked about (and listened to) releases of the summer! The amazing sleeve art, shown above, was done by famed artist (and Thunderchiefs guitarist) Mike Guerrero.


On one side you get Swedish faves The Surfites with "This Time Tomorrow" and "Hot Dog On A Stick". Flip it over and you get two more boss tunes from Austin, TX surf combo The Thunderchiefs - "Kook Patrol" and "Tomsco Twist".

While the music and amazing artwork is best enjoyed in the 7" vinyl format, we do understand that many of you don't have turntables. For you, we have the digital version of the EP, which can be downloaded at: iTunes ~ CD Baby ~ Emusic


Tracks: The Surfites: This Time Tomorrow - Hot Dog On A Stick / The Thunderchiefs: Kook Patrol - Tomsco Twist

Order From Double Crown Records - $6.75 each
