NGD magazine enthusiastic about Whimsical Surf Version Two

Instrumental rock-n-roll review magazine New Gandy Dancer (NGD) issue 112, just printed, gives a four star (highest) rating to the Insanitizers' "Whimsical Surf Version Two" CD.

They write, "Frantic, fun & full of guitar rock originals ...Great tearing surf and driving instrumentals with some really nice covers secreted in there, like the theme from Alfred Hitchcock, "Mozart 40" and "The Sugar Plum Fairy" - all powered up of course!

"Dance Like A Robot" is a strong starter for ten, with its rollicking & rolling axes and "Waterboard Surfing" is a racey, wild surfer. "Hot Sauce" is a BIG sound reminiscent of Davie Allan's material or indeed The Ventures' "In Space" album. This set definitely can't fail."

William Street Strikers featured on Surfer Living USA

Our Band - William Street Strikers - has just had our music used on the Surfer Living U.S.A video backing this prestigeous event which we are stoked about. We have a few videos on our site, notably the Breaka Burleigh Surfer Pro. This video was the first from this angle too, it was done from a massive cherry picker. These videos were made by Craig Halstead who's been filming surf since 1970's. As we all surf it's great! Please check out our website.

Cheers - William Street Strikers
