No no, do not have any regrets! Good choices! Thanks a lot! : )

And, yes, Morgana is the Phantom Four album.

I guess Niels will know this.

Twang cheers!

After some thought, I did not put in an album (vinyl) which I should have. It came out in the 80's & is REALLY surf music instrumentals...so

#11: The Cruncher "Go Surfin' With the Cruncher"

They were a German band & featured the talents of Herbert Hooke on lead guitar. Is anyone here familiar with them ?
BTD is correct in posting "a top 20 or 25 may have been better".

Yes, The Cruncher! He is good known in the german surf music scene. He released 3 (or 4?) vey surfy albums. A few tracks were recorded with rhythm machine, but it sounds very good for me! He did a lot of cover versions, and I LOVE them. His version of Latinia from the album Surf Guitar for example is the best Latinia version for me. He has got a unique drippy guitar tone out of his old Jazzmaster! As I know The Cruncher was always a studio project.
Herbert Hooke aka The Cruncher is still active and is doing a Rock n Roll radio show. Last surf music activity is about 6 years ago…
Sometimes I play a few songs from The Cruncher in my "The Fantastic Four" radio show at NSSR.
Check out his albums!

Twang cheers!

I had that issue last year & just treated it as an opportunity; reading some of the other lists just got me exploring further & I found more tasty stuff. Still, post what trips your trigger; it's likely to be different next year.

Edit: I just finished a re-listen of a Torquays album. I should've waited till the last minute, making the teacher call home for my assignment. Can't we have 11......?

I have a lot of favorite modern surf albums. But the one thing that makes this list difficult is that I really do see the 90's movement as a separate thing from the mid 2000's and further movement...None-the-less, I have done my best.

Just to clarify to people,
When you say no particular order.
Do you know that the number 1 gets more points
Down to number 10 getting the least.
So the order you put them in does matter.

Thanks for the heads up Jeff. Niels, I'm going to adjust my list. Dang it was hard enough just making it.

I've struggled. I've been unable to make a logical complete decision. There's so many albums that have half that are great and then not so great. I finally based my decision on how the whole album affects me. I really couldn't make a placement for the ten so I don't want to reflect negatively on any band that I placed them lower than the others. That was my own failure to be decisive. I like so much of this music that it all blends in to one large happy place in my world.
Country: USA
1: Glasgow Tiki Shakers- Little Orbit
2: Van Duras- In the Dark
3: Halibuts- Chumming
4: Eliminators- Unleashed
5: Pollo Del Mar- The Golden State
6: Penetrators- Locked and Loaded
7: Voodoo Court- Aggravated Marshmellow
8: Pollo Del Mar- Devil and the Deep Blue Sea
9: The Madeira- Sandstorm
10: Frankie & the Pool Boys

Name: James
Country: USA
1. Surf Kings – “Up From The Depths”
2. Supertones – “Surf Fever 2000”
3. Duo-Tones – “Surf Music Unplugged”
4. Jon & The Nightriders – “Fiberglass Rocket”
5. Evan Foster – “Instrumentals”
6. Looney Tunes – “Cool Surfin’”
7. Surf Trio – “Moxie And More”
8. Jon & The Nightriders – “Moving Target”
9. Shadowy Men On A Shadowy Planet – “Savvy Show Stoppers”
10. Surfdusters – “Rain Coast Rumble”

I have no idea why I made these choices. My ideas change daily. So I had to confirm something. This is WAY more difficult than the singles! It depends on personal influences, personal history, thoughts, periods, sounds... and thinking of the overall sound of the album, more than the single track.

  7. Frankie & the Pool Boys - Frankie & the Pool Boys
  8. Madeira - Carpe Noctem
  9. Atlantics - Flight of the Surf Guitar
  10. Longboards - Insane!
