Thanks, Ferenc. I really appreciate the kind words AND asking me to play on "Cat Fight." That was a very enjoyable experience and I was honored to be a part of that F&TPB "Cap'n Coconuts" CD. This Bear Family "Anthology" package is available from their website, Amazon, my own website (www.johnblair.us), and probably a host of other e-retailers.

In 2 weeks, the Pool Boys head to Portland (11/30) and Seattle (12/1). Hope to see you there! If you know anyone in those cities, please tell them about our shows.

As we get ready for a long drive up the Pacific Coast, the Pool Boys got together to rehearse on last Sunday. Jonathan and Abraham won't be making the trip, as their work gets busy during the holidays. Filling in is Pool Boy emeritus Tony Bald on drums, and Pollo Del Mar bassist Jeff Turner. PDM used to cover Zappa's "Peaches en Regalia", so we decided to add it to our set for these PNW shows.
One thing I hated about being in PDM is that the songs we did were really technically challenging, and I had to stare at my hands all the time. So, we made this video, and sure enough, I'm back to staring at my hands.
Anyway, I hope you enjoy the video, warts and all.

NEW CD BY FRANKIE & THE POOL BOYS - "THE WET SEASON" OUT NOW ON DOUBLE CROWN RECORDS!
With the complete selling out of the Frankie and the Pool Boys catalogue, Double Crown Records presents an anthology of songs from their first three albums. Packed with 79+ minutes and 27 songs in total, it also features four new cuts. The track list was chosen largely based on how well the songs were received in a live setting, so the selection really was decided by fans of the band.

All of the Pool Boys’ three albums (the 2008 eponymous first album, 2013’s The Adventures of Cap’n Coconuts, and the Pipeline Magazine Album of the Year for 2018, Spin The Bottle) are well represented. Of course, “Ewa on the Beach” (voted the #3 Surf Revival song by listeners of North Sea Surf Radio) is included, as are the band’s most familiar songs, “The Wet Season,”“Skinny Dippin’,”“Teke Teke Teke” and “Tan Line Fever.”

John Blair (noted music historian and leader of Jon & the Nightriders) appears on “Cat Fight” and wrote the extensive liner notes. Ivan Pongracic (The Madeira and The Space Cossacks) appears on “Magyara.” Drummer Dusty Watson (Dick Dale, The Sonics, Slacktone) is featured on many tracks, and is credited as producer on those he didn’t play on. Oslo based artist Fred Lammers, who has designed three album covers for the band and more than 40 show posters, returns with a stunning package design. The previously unreleased songs include a live take of The Surf Coasters “Dreams,” which features Naotaka Seki, from that band, on drums. The bombastic “Game of Thrones” theme is recast in a spaghetti western style. The lead off track, “Moorea Mon Amour” was inspired by the passionate beauty of French Polynesia. “The Whammy” is an ancient Pollo Del Mar song, brought back to life at the insistence of Pool Boy drummer Jonathan Rodriguez.

John Blair writes: “Personally, I consider Frankie & The Pool Boys to be among the most creative surf instrumental bands on the planet today. And if their earlier records didn’t get the message across, this “best of” compilation should drive that point home.”

As the Pool Boys take this moment to look back at thirteen years of recording and touring, they also look forward to new music and touring. A new album is currently being rehearsed with plans for recording and release in early 2022.

Tracks: Moorea Mon Amour - Ewa On The Beach - Skinny Dippin' - Tan Line Fever - Amber Waves - The Wet Season - The Golden State - Magyara - Spin The Bottle - Dreams (Live) - Raise Hell - Tic Toc - The Raven - Prayer Wheel - The Whammy - Summer Cold - Cat Fight - A Man Called Dirt - Seafoam Angels - Organic Matters - Magic River - Finito Bandito - El Valenciano - Teke, Teke, Teke - Poser - Game Of Thrones - No Surf Today

Frankie & The Pool Boys - The Wet Season CD - DCCD89 - $12.75 (Order From Double Crown Records)

New Pollo Del Mar is finished, but vinyl takes forever (6 months??) to press, so who knows. Is it worth it??
Just started rehearsing with the Pool boys with the aim of recording an album. We'll probably record in August
And I'm in a fuzz-pop band called The IFIC that has recording dates booked in September.
So, I'm tryin' to keep busy.
Also, we should be headed to Seattle in December, but I'm not sure which band.

Thanks very much Eric! I, and we, appreciate it!

Frankie and the Pool Boys have a new digital single out, available from Hi-Tide Recordings. It's ultra-trad surf, heavily caffeinated, with the reverb dripping and strong brew.
The video was filmed on our December 2019 tour in Baja, Mexico.

That’s great! I’m looking forward to hearing all of it!

Is vinyl worth it? It’s cool but The ‘Verb’s experience with it was definitely not encouraging. We were told there’s months originally and ended up waiting over a year.

December at the old Darrell’s (like before)? I’ve got a new surf project going (should have an album super soon, and Jake will likely be joining as well). If that’s where you’re playing, hopefully, we’ll get to share a bill again.
