- Surf Music
Help us meet our monthly goal:
Since February 26, 2006, SurfGuitar101.com has been the premier home on the web for friends and fans of the world-wide phenomenon known as surf music! Created in Southern California in the early 1960's, surf music is very much alive today and has spread around the globe. Join us in our forums to discuss surf music, past and present. Meet new friends and discover new bands. Want to play surf music? We have lots of forums devoted to playing, performing, and writing surf music. We have lots of discussions on gear: guitars, amps, and drums. Check out our podcasts and hear some really great tunes! Finally, we feature news and articles on the surf scene, and you'll always know where you can catch some live surf music!
R.I.P. Dick Dale, the King of the Surf Guitar. We wouldn't be here without him. Thank you for all the incredible music.
Join us in our forums for some lively discussions. Here are the forum topics with new posts.
I am pleased to announce the SurfGuitar101 2021 MP3 Compilation! Our 18th one! Just like before, this is a way for members to share music, recording tips, and to just have fun. The main emphasis is fun, so please send in an entry no matter what your skill level is. Here are the rules:
Please use the comment thread for this news story to discuss the compilation and to get information on how to submit an mp3. Please also use that thread if you'd like to find a fellow member to work with on the project. With the magic of digital recording and the Internet, remote collaborations are possible. Make your own virtual surf band!
Please check out our prior compilations by using the links in the bottom left sidebar of the desktop version of our site.
Let the comp begin!
My new solo album ELVIS, ROBERT & LOU is out today!
Featuring Tony Scherr (Bill Frisell Trio) on bass and Tony Mason (Norah Jones, Jim Campilongo) on drums. Together we give songs from Elvis, the Cure and Lou Reed a new twist…
Surf meets Jazz meets Country and Rockabilly…with influences from Jim Campilongo, Bill Frisell and Brian Setzer.
CD comes in a cool 7’’ style cover
Order here: https://www.therazorblades.de/shop/
or stream on Spotify and Apple music.
It is finally here - our new ten track album of instrumental coolness and beauty. We named it 'Revenge of the Skinny Fat Silverback', whatever that's supposed to mean, and you can buy a limited vinyl edition or a high quality digital download from bandcamp. In a short while a CD version will be added to our bandcamp merch store.
We hope you will enjoy it and play it so loud that your neighbours can't resist buying a copy too!
Give it spin on Bandcamp.

The Out Of Towners
by Kincaid and The Memetics
Check out "The Out Of Towners", which is our October 22, 2022 EP, inspired by a trip to Calabria in the south of Italy.
The boat on the cover was a yacht that had washed ashore and was abandoned and ransacked.
We talked a lot about the meaning of Rino Gaetano and, yes, the sky was always blue.
This is a Low Brow Production
As always it is FREE to download on Bandcamp: https://kincaid01.bandcamp.com/album/the-out-of-towners
