Shallow End Re-Dedicated to Rip and Spanky

Submitted by Brian on August 31, 2009.
Site News
We recently lost Brian Rogers, aka Spanky Twangler, of the Penetrators. This is especially tragic because Brian was the brother and bandmate of Scott Rogers, aka Rip Thrillby, who passed in an auto accident several years ago. Brian had a battle with cancer that he detailed on his myspace and facebook pages. Brian showed an amazing amount of courage, humanity, and faith in his battle, and we will miss him terribly.

Both Brian and Scott were larger than life figures in the surf community, both off and on-line. The Shallow End forum, our off-topic place for friendly chit-chat, was dedicated to Rip shortly after this site went live. It now seems only fitting to re-dedicate The Shallow End to both Rip and Spanky. I never met these fine gentlemen in person, but their loss was felt very deeply by myself and many other surf music fans. Thank you guys for your time with us; the humor, creativity, and musicianship you displayed is a true inspiration for us all.

Surf bands at Coney Island / Deno's Wonder Wheel - photos

Submitted by WitchesInBikinis on August 20, 2009.
Show Reports
It was an amazing day at the legendary Coney island last Saturday, August 15th.

Five surf bands and Witches In Bikinis (horror / sci-fi, surf) were guests of Deno's Wonder Wheel under a perfectly blue sky with the beach as background. Who could ask for more?

All the bands were ON IT and Blue  StingRaye did a terrific job keeping order and working the crowd as MC.

Here are links to the pictures.
