Chum (LA/South Bay California, USA)

Biography (From Facebook page)

We don't care about credibility, because we are incredible.

CHUM is not your dad's surf music. No pretty harmonies, no old ladies from The Valley, no matching suits/hawaiian shirts... Guitar, bass, drums, reverb, a bit of distortion, some attitude, and a suitcase full of bad jokes. CHUM is about a good time fueled by pints of the good stuff (insert your favorite beer here, or use Guinness as a reliable default.) CHUM hails from L.A.s South Bay. Yeah, the same area that brought you Dewey Weber, The Belairs, The Beach Boys, Black Flag, and Pennywise. Surf Music by surfers, for surfers... For those who know what a mouth full of salt water tastes like, the smell of a wetsuit that's been in your trunk a bit too long, and a crotch full of sand.
Adrien Anthony - Tubs...... Willy B.- Bassoon...... Alan Thomas - Guitar
The list of who we're NOT influenced by is WAY, WAY shorter!!!

Los Straitjackets, The Black Widows, Slacktone, Pollo Del Mar, Agent Orange, Powerflex 5, The Lava Rats, Secret Samurai, Chingon, Your Mom, and a host of other bands you've never heard of.

Frankie & The Pool Boys (San Francisco California, USA)

" Spin The Bottle is Frankie & Pool Boys third full length album on the Double Crown Records label and features 20 songs. That’s 14 new originals, 2 covers (Booker T and the MGs, The Surf Coasters) and 4 vocal versions. Every effort was made to use vintage instruments, recording equipment and techniques. The biggest change on this album is that the Pool Boys line-up solidified into a tight, consistent unit. So, rather than every song featuring guest artists sending in tracks from around the world like on the first two Pool Boys albums, the whole CD was recorded in one weekend with the dedicated band of five. Dusty Watson (drummer for The Sonics, Dick Dale, Agent Orange, Slacktone) was brought in as chief ass-kicker (Producer). Ass-kick he did, whipping the Pool Boys into a tight unit, streamlining arrangements, encouraging dynamics, all with attention to sonic detail.

The album cover art was created by legendary Oslo artist Fred Lammers. A lengthy companion PDF featuring extended liner notes, tablature, recording notes and photos can be downloaded from

Tracks: Seafoam Angels - Poser - Smoke Jumper - Spin The Bottle - El Valenciano - Magic River - The Wet Season - Summer Cold - Fast Loud Hard - Hang 'em High - Tan Line Fever - Kill Devil Club - Prayer Wheel - San Quixote - Raise Hell - Pool Boy Stomp - Spin the Bottle (Vocal Bonus Track) - Summer Cold (Vocal Bonus Track) - Fast Loud Hard (Vocal Bonus Track) - Pool Boy Blues (Vocal Bonus Track).

Luau Or Die (Toronto, Canada)

Luau or Die have been a part of the Toronto surf scene for a good while now (there's videos going back to 2009 on Youtube) but for us way far away from Toronto, we can dig this EP. "Dead on the Floor Vol. 1" is comprised of four originals and a cover of "Llorando Se Fue" (I had to look up the original) with quickly picked guitar and tight playing. It's a live album, but very clean and honestly better sounding than an awful lot of surf rock studio recordings. You can get it directly from the band by visiting their website

Strange But Surf ( Long Island New York, USA)

hey have released 3 albums, "Making Treble", "Swimming in Reverb", and their newest release "Stranger Than Ever". In addition, they appear on the surf compilation CD "Off the Deep End" by Deep Eddy Records.

I am a big fan of Banned From The Beach, among many others that you have included on this list. However, I don't think the facebook page you linked is their actual band page. Smile

Bamboogie Injections (Moscow, Russia)

Bamboogie Injections Story

July 31, 2018
Having evolved from the beach culture of 60-s the Surf Music has plenty of incarnations all over the world today. Surf band "Bamboogie Injections" appeals to classic part of the style creating original stuff on the intersection of Surf and Instrumental Rock where rough Dick Dale style doublepicking touched the smooth psychedelic surf-ballads.
Bamboogie Injections are: Den - as a guitar charmer, Kate - as a psyko-bass femme (in studio & on stage) as well as keyboardessa (in studio) and Mr. Deadly Stab - as a drum guy.
On June 2017 Bamboogie Injections were participants of Surfer Joe Summer Festival, 12th Edition (Livorno, Italy).

Huevos Rancheros (Calgary-Alberta, Canada) 1990-2000



Initially consisting of guitarist Brent Cooper, bassist Graham Evans and drummer Richie Ranchero,[3] Huevos Rancheros released the six-song EP Huevosaurus independently in 1990 before releasing the EP Rocket to Nowhere in 1991 on Estrus Records.[3] In its early years the band was sometimes described as a cross between Led Zeppelin and The Ventures.[3]
The band then signed to C/Z Records, which reissued Huevosaurus in 1992 before releasing the band's full-length album Endsville in 1993.[4]
In 1995, the band signed to Mint Records.[5] Around the same time, Evans left the band and was replaced by Tom Kennedy.[6] The band's instrumental rock record Dig In was released that year.[7]
In 1998, their album Get Outta Dodge was nominated for a Juno Award in the Best Alternative Album category.[8][2]
After touring in Europe with Duotang,[9] in 2000 the band released the album Muerte del Toro.[10][11] They broke up soon after, although they have performed occasional reunion shows at benefit concerts to raise money for a journalism scholarship named in memory of former Calgary Herald music critic James Muretich.[12] The reunion show lineup has featured Evans rather than Kennedy on bass

Like many other bands on here its hard to find home town info and information about the band. Not very good as far as promotion goes. It seems like the bigger bands have all that kind of information avalible - could be a reason why some do better? - but that's debatible too being so many other factors are involved.
