Satan's Pilgrims - Taco Truck / Neahkahnie 7" (Double Crown)
Satan’s Pilgrims bring you the latest in stereophonic entertainment with their timeless and engaging surf instrumentals “Taco Truck” and “Neahkahnie.” On the A-side, “Taco Truck” transports the listener to a magical place where delicious melodies reverberate from Venice Beach to Cape Cod. Some fear one day there will be a taco truck on every corner, Satan’s Pilgrims welcome that day! The B-Side is a caravan of pleasure with the deliberate and mellow song, “Neahkahnie”—bringing to mind the mysterious siren call of the mountain from which it was named. One part Jorgen Ingmann, one part triple-sec, one part fun!
This record is a co-release between Double Crown Records and Hidden Volume Records, who have wowed the world with their awesome garage, garage punk and (occasional) rock n’ roll instro releases, all packed in exquisite, deluxe sleeves.

Watch out for this new release which is a found tape with unreleased instrumentals by Lee Hazlewood from the early 1960s. In the link above you can have a look at the previously unreleased titles created by Lee himself.
The album will be released as a vinyl album as well as a CD.
ATTN: Surf Guitarists both rhythm and lead:
As veteran surf guitarists ourselves, Mel and I consider this pedal a must have for anyone using a Fender style reverb tank. Surfy bear kit builders, you can easily wire in a jack to accommodate the pedal as well, if you haven't already.
We will be setting up a demonstration area at the SG101 convention, but if you're not coming and you'd like to pre-order one at the discounted intro price, we've created a page on Mel's Alameda Guitars website with more information and a contact form at the bottom.
You can also find everything you need to make your own right here.
Linda and I will be attending the Surf Guitar 101 Convention again this year. It is being held at Alpine Village located in Torrance. We will be there on Saturday the 4th. We will be selling copies of the 3rd edition of Surfiin' Guitars, Surf Raiders CD's and CD's from the 1980's and 1990's. If you have stuff from the Surf Raiders or my book and want autographs, bring it along. There will be some great surf bands at this convention. See you there.
