All the bands that day were amazing, but the energy in the room from the very first note the Madeira played was extremely powerful and moving! Marty was definitely there and touching all of our spirits!

Amen Brutha!

A video of us playing Sandstorm at the Convention was just posted on YouTube by Darren Kruger a day or two ago. Things were lively! Smile

So intense! Love how certain frequencies rattle/blur the video. Just like being in the room - it truly was a force not just seen & heard, but literally FELT. I swear there were moments that really looked like this live (rattled your brain, blurred your vision for a second.) So freakin cool!


El Mirage @ ReverbNation

yeah I was gonna mention that about the frequencies blurring the camera too.


Here is my first effort at getting some of the videos up!
El Ray - Car Hire From Hell

I only got this one done! I kept getting phone calls interrupting me, then the water supply line for the fridge sprung a leak and finished off my evening.
Anyway this sia a video of El Ray at The Redwood in LA on August 9th. The place was packed and I had to hold my camera up on a mono pod by the ceiling. That is why it is not aimed too well. Sorry about that! All the videos from there turned out grainy because of low light.

thanks Guy,

and what's with you and house problems?
you seem to have been cursed lately.
Were you a total jerk in a past life?
you don't deserve all these problems man.


What is the title of this song that Jon and the Nightriders did at the convention?



Hi Darren,

That's "Geronimo," which can be found on 1984's Charge of the Nightriders. Cheers!


Insect Surfers
The Tikiyaki Orchestra
Surfer Joe
Fiberglass Jungle - Surf Radio

Man that was fast.
thanks for posting,


There is also a great live version of Geronimo on their "Raw & Alive '98" CD.

Yes, I just realized to my amazement I don't have it on my iPod. This has been remedied.

Jon & the Nightriders "Raw & Alive '98" CD. what a killer CD!! One of my favorites. Any more video's of them from the convention.

Isn't live at the whiskey supposed to be reissued soon by the same folks that reissued Surf Beat '80 ?

An interesting (maybe?) bit of trivia: Raw and Alive '98 was recorded at a show for which the Space Cossacks opened. In fact, since the recording gear was already set up, the Cossacks set ended up being recorded, as well, and that's where those live recordings come from that some of you have and that are floating about. (I think two of those songs were on the Cossaacks best-of, Never Mind the Bolsheviks.)

Having seen J&TN at that show, as well as the Rendezvous Ballroom Reunion, and a few others over the years, it is my impression that they still played the best I've ever seen them at the August SG101 Convention. They were just ON FIRE! I really hope some more videos surface from that show. (And yes, where's that Live at the Whisky A Go Go CD??)

I have a copy of that Space Cossacks live show. You guys sounded great! interesting story too. I know Guy Moore has video of the August SG101 Convention of Jon & the Nightriders, I guess we wait and see if he posts it.

I was at that Foothill Show in Long Beach with Jon & the Nightriders,
The Space Cossacks, and Del Noah & The Mt. Ararat Finks.
I think I was 1 of 8 paying attendees.

I was really hoping that Guy would have had the Videos from the
SG101 convention posted by now.
I know hes busy, but one video from Thurs. is making me worry about this.

I was looking for a pic of El Ray, and all I get is a blank white page with any link.


I haven't tried them all, but the ones I tried (incl. El Ray's) all worked.

This is Noel. Reverb's at maximum an' I'm givin' 'er all she's got.
