Pipeline Magazine notes head-spinning intensity of Insanitizers' Wild Surf Guitars

The latest Pipeline Instrumental Review magazine (issue 92, summer 2013, page 38) reflects the intensity of the recordings on the Insanitizers 2013 CD "Wild Surf Guitars":

"There may be quite a variety of sounds on this album from The Insanitizers but the recurring theme is of lively, intertwining guitars that swap leads and riffs with head-spinning fervour. Be it the repetitive jangle of "At the Beach," the sparkling twang of "GooglEyes" or the frantic surf of "Surf Wall Street," their aim seems to be to fry your brain...

"The most conventional track is "Man Hunter," an acoustic take on the old cowboy western style. This provides a useful transition into the final three acoustic guitar duo...The surf-flavoured "Undertow" works very well and the strongly rhythmic "Fantwango" round off the album very nicely."


Pre-order Lost Sunset by Gold Dust Lounge

Hi Everyone,

Russell here from Gold Dust Lounge (Miami, FL). We have a Kickstarter going (6 days left) that's essentially a pre-order for our upcoming album, Lost Sunset. It's a surf/spy road trip extravaganza. Think The Mermen meet The Fathoms meet The Vanduras... Something like that.

The vinyl edition has cover art by Tiki/Pulp artist, Robert Jimenez. Check it out here.

I've been remiss for not posting here sooner. We have SIX days left for the pre-order. Lots of goodies. Click here to find out more about us and our new album.

Thanks in advance!



THE RAZORBLADES new album out now!

CD CoverThe super fast, high energetic surf punk combo from Germany releases album No 5!

Snapshots from The Underground is packed with twangy guitars, punk rock energy, feedback noises and eclectic songwriting...influences range from surf master Dick Dale to New Wave pioneers The Cure, Alternative Rockers Rowland S. Howard and Dinosaur JR. to noise masters Sonic Youth. Put a little singing on top and you get a surf album that sounds VERY different from the usual trad sound.

Hope you enjoy it!
