I just ran across this while looking at all those wonderful versions of "Wipeout."


"Turn the knob to 10 and break it off!" -Baja Marty

Wow. That is pretty good. I wasn't expecting it to be that good after seeing Hawaiian shirts.

The El Dorados are a great band. There are a lot of familiar faces -- Stu and Mark, who both used to be in The Aquamarines, are the drummer and lead guitarist respectively. Also, on rhythm is a guy by the name of Mark English, whom most of you know from a band called The Space Cossacks.

I expect that these guys will be making some major waves in a few, especially once they start writing and performing their own material.


Mark is in that band? Weird.

Yeah... I guess Mark moved out to the Bay Area a few years back, and after a little bit he decided he wanted to get back into the surf groove. We played with them at their first show back in August.


Thanks for that video, though it doesn't do them justice. I was fortunate to hang with them at their practice one time and was blown away by how good they were. They're going for a more polished and refined sound and it's good as gold, pun intended.

Tell me about it! Generally, both Marks play Strats, and I did a double take when both of them reached for the Rickys. But damn, they do sound mighty tasty when they do it.


It's great to see Mark playing surf music again. Makes me very happy! Here's hoping we hear a lot more from El Dorados - they sound great in this clip.


PS It's funny he's playing Strats now, cause Mark NEVER played a Strat in the Cossacks! It was always either a Jap Jag or a Schecter Hellcat....
