Help us meet our monthly goal:
North Sea Surf Radio was already doing groundbreaking work with compiling and broadcasting the Classic Surf Top 101 and the Surf Revival Top 101. Now, for the first time in history the surf music scene is to compile another ultimate list in surf music; The Album Top 101, the best 101 Surf Revival Albums as voted for by the listeners of North Sea Surf Radio and the members of the Surf Guitar 101 forum.
Everybody can submit their 10 personal favourite albums from the Surf Revival Era (1979-2013). Records released this year are excluded from the list. With all the contributions the team at North Sea Surf Radio will compile the Album Top 101 which will be broadcasted on April 20th, presented by DJ Jonpaul (Surf Guitar 101) and DJ Phantom (North Sea Surf Radio).
People can help decide what the best instrumental surf music albums of all time are by adding their Top 10 to the Surf Guitar 101 forum in the following thread.
Another option to submit votes it to send an email with name, country and the Album Top 10 list to TOP101@northseasurfradio.com
The deadline for submissions is Friday 11th April.

Howdy Surf Bands,
With all the hats I seem to wear, I'm not finding enough time to actually conduct phone interviews with bands. But I have done virtual interviews in the past. If you'd like to send me an interview in an .mp3 I can assure you it will sound like we're actually speaking to each other! Please take your time and have fun - I'd like to fill about 15 minutes with the interview.
STANDARD INTERVIEW QUESTIONS:
Hello and welcome to the Shrunken Head Lounge. Thank you for joining us! (you can respond how ever you feel)
Also if you don't mind, please do a short promo for the Shrunken Head Lounge. Example: "Hello, we are ___ and you're listening to the Shrunken Head Lounge!". We will use this promo on other shows where you music may appear, just as a thank you!
DJ & Curator of The Shrunken Head Lounge
The Surf Zombies are riding high on our new cd It's a....THING! It is currently available on cd with Deep Eddy Records and downloads. It was very fun to record. We spent a few months running through the material and playing it live before we gathered at Ian Williams studio and laid it down live to tape. We used only 7 channels to keep it as minimal as possible and it was a great experience. We have a new bass player named Trevor Treiber and he plays a Dano through an Ampeg. He really rocks! He mixes super hard hitting Ramones style with wicked odd riffs and brings his A game to every gig plus he is extremely prolific with writing new songs. He also plays in a band called The Blendours.
The Surf Zombies are working towards releasing It's a ...THING! on vinyl.
Check out our sampler video too!

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.
