The men with the burnin' guitars. From Austin, Texas.
Combining classic movie monster fandom with punk rock energy and a 60's pop sensibility, The 3-D INVISIBLES have been developing their sound since they began in 1981. The song lyrics are the result of too many Creature Feature movies and brain-rotting comic books. The music is high energy, often hard hitting. The band has labeled it's sound "Monster Rock" (from a song by British horror-rocker Screaming Lord Sutch).
The band members are: "Billy Bones" Bowen on drums, "Crypt-Rocker Chris" Flanagan on bass guitar and backing vocals, and songwriter "Creepy Rick" Mills on guitar and lead vocal.
The group became the core for a variety of spin-off bands for Mills and Flanagan. These include: The Zombie Surfers (surf & scary), The KAOS Killers (spy themes), Screamin' Savage & the Cavemen (50's trash rock & roll), The Hellbenders (spaghetti western), and most recently The Volcanos (high energy surf).
The 3-D Invisibles have released three LP's and four 7" records on their own Neurotic Bop label, along with a compilation CD "B-Movie Brain" containing songs by them and some of the spin-off bands. So if you dig the fright scene and you wanna rock, head down to the cemetery or your local haunted house and check out The 3-D INVISIBLES!

Agent Octopus is an East Coast quartet comprised of former members of the hard driving "Reverb Galaxy" and the surf traditionalist "Atomic Bumz" focusing on melodic, post 90s surf instrumentals. Pipeline Magazine’s review of their 2019 Blue-Eyed Surf CD said Agent Octopus “plays a unique blend of the melodic European style of surf delivered with a clean reverb surf flourish” (pp). Yeah that may be true, but live they mix it up with lots of reverb soaked glissando, pounding drums which swell around beautiful guitar lines played with passion.
Lead guitar duties are shared by Art Svrjcek and Jim Colby which gives the band an almost Beatle-esque sound. Their next cd planned for post Covid 2021 will focus on Spy vs Surf.

An Italian surf'n'roll instrumental band!!!
Nameless minions with instrumental surf as their bidding. Having heavy influences in traditional instrumental surf, revival surf, swing revival, exotica lounge, spaghetti western, and spy theme they set out to develop a diverse sound.
Calling on a bit of theatricality they tell their saga of being commanded to drown audiences in a reverberated madness.
