Los Kiosk Bears gig cancelled!

Apologies to anyone planning to see Los Kiosk Bears play at The Bell pub in Great Paxton, Cambridge (UK) on the 26th April 2013.   Due to Greene King changing the live music rules for this venue, we can no longer play there.   Let's just hope they didn't change them just to keep us out!

All the best,

Paul

FIBERGLASS JUNGLE - New 2 Hour Surf Music Radio Show on Luxuriamusic.com!

Fiberglass Jungle Logo

This Saturday, April 6 from 2-4PM (Pacific) will mark the debut of a new weekly 2 hour Surf Music radio show on Luxuriamusic.com called FIBERGLASS JUNGLE.

Luxuria is an extremely well known and fanatically followed internet station that presents 24 hours of unusual, specialized programming geared to those with more retro sensibilities. The station features a number of fantastic shows hosted by some pretty heavy hitters covering a wide range of genres and styles--Garage, Psychedelic, Jazz, Easy Listening, Exotica, Lounge, Space Age Pop, Bachelor Pad, Incredibly Strange and Outsider Music, and much more!

Fiberglass Jungle will present the very best in recordings that fall under the wide instrumental Surf Music umbrella. This base encompasses the “pre-surf” instrumental Rock n’ Roll tunes of the late 50s, the classic “First Wave” originators of the early 60s, the “Second Wave” bands of the late 70s and early 80s, the crossover, genre-blending “Third Wave” bands of the 90s, the cutting-edge, description-defiant melting pot of current-day innovators, as well as a healthy dose of Spaghetti Western, international styles such as Japanese Eleki and Finnish Rautalanka, Surf-Guitar-based Exotica, Easy Listening, and Spy/Crime Jazz.

There will be a proper web presence coming soon, which will likely include a blog where each week's playlist and band/song/album information will be posted regularly.

To submit music, press releases or other Surf Music related news, please feel free to contact fiberglassjungle@yahoo.com.
