Of the latest cd's I've picked up, only one of them is "surf" -

Dr Rich makes the reverb tank scream for mercy.

The Disasternauts

Latest ones:
Madeira - Sandstorm - very good, enjoy it a lot, see it as a natural progression from the Space Cossacks, and you'll enjoy it.
Continental Sampler #12 - great stuff there - the 1st song kicks ass (Phantom Frank)
The Penetrators - Locked & Loaded - jury is still out on this one. Good, but could use more melody development. Great artwork and song names.
Ghastly Ones 7" - that's an old one I got for the cover (it looks like the Hanuted Mansion poster, so I can hang it next to it. Thanks BTD!). Of course if you don't have the first Ghastly Ones CD, do youself a favor and get it. The new demo from them is good but recorded pretty bad. Try to get it at a gig so you don't pay too much.

planning to get the Nebulas new one at Seattle.

The Scimitars

No Prob, my pleasure, glad you liked it.

The Gleason stuff is pretty amazing, considering he had no musical training at all and could not read a note. He would sing his ideas for melodies and arrangements to transcribists and then control the sessions until what the orchestra was playing matched what he heard in his head.

That description fits very well for mad sound scientist Joe Meek too!

Speaking of Joe Meek, I fairly recent got the now out of print and excellent "Intergalactic Instros" compilation containing several cuts from one of my favourite British instro groups, The Moontrekkers.

"It starts... when it begins" -- Ralf Kilauea

Nebulas new one, and Satan's Pilgrims At Home With . . . on LP but I already had a CD of it.

I know this has probably been discussed before.
But has any surf band done a surf cover of the Cure's "Killing an Arab"?

I just played that last night at a bar while waiting to see some friends rockabilly bands play.

Jeff(bigtikidude)

intrresting thought BTD - I find sometimes with the new bands, they have a touch of new wave, esp cure, in their songwriting. the infrareds for example have some very cure-inspired stuff.

usually, though, I like th originals way better then the "off-topic" covers. I thought about orderirng the way beyond the sea comp, it's fun and all, but then I thought, there's so many (proper) surf cd's I'd still rather have....

anways,
WR

I don't know much about them besides that they were one of Joe Meek's groups and only released a couple of 45s. I believe they recorded around 10 songs in total and 7 of these are on the Intergalactic Instros CD I mentioned above.

Joe Meek was always looking for a novelty angle for his records, and one of his obsessions was horror rock. He took North London band The Raiders, dismissed their lead singer from the studio with a raspberry (Rod Stewart later went on to some success), changed their name to The Moontrekkers, and made the eerie, creaking 'Night Of The Vampire'.

Hey Klas,
How do the rest of the Moontrekkers instros stack up?

Not sure, I considered it but concluded it would be a bit lame. but it's true that robert smith is one of the very few singers in pop music that actuyally has enough melody in his voice to repeat it on guitar - killing an arab is a bad example though, the vocal melody would get boring pretty quick.

Hey Klas,

Although I like "Night Of The Vampire" best, I also really like the other tunes including the very novelty "There's Something At The Bottom Of The Well" (just learned that the band themselves hated this one) Laughing
