"Los Grainders" EP

"Los Grainders" EP

Deeply inspired by the "California Culture" of the mid-sixties and the magnificent "Surf Sound" developed using 'Fender' electric instruments during this era 'Los Grainders' present this EP that contains 4 original surf instrumentals. Recorded, edited and mixed by themselves this "home brew" EP is proof that Surf Music in Mexico is alive.


"Graind it, dear!"

Only a few days away .. Not a bar gig .. These are special. The MADEIRA, the BLACK KAT DEVILS. & the GRATEFUL SURF this Saturday 21st.

Persistence of surf music v2

Adventure usually means taking a journey into the unknown. Often it is said that the surf and instrumental music of today's scene is about as underground as the Grateful Dead were in 1965. Actually the GD cover artist Rick Griffin had album art experience first from working for the Challengers and other surf bands and magazines. Soo...not too far off

The feature act of the V2 PERSISTENCE OF SURF MUSIC has world renown and has top reviews in many magazines like PIPELINE and GUITAR PLAYER . Most information can be found by looking at the band's website . A true adventurer would find this.

A series of which this is - # 2 , three great bands : featuring the MADEIRA hailing from Indianapolis and Hillsdale Michigan. Written up in Guitar player , traveled Europe, website , they have six great CDs out. Sandstorm - the Madeira Geronimo - the Madeira The Saracen- the Madeira Tribal Fury - the Madeira

The BLACK KAT DEVILS , sure we spelled their name wrong on the poster. They go on first so get her early. Tailspin ( with old guitarist Andy ) Toxic train

The Grateful Surf . Great dance music and too much like fun .....go on third.

The Amphibians - Enigma of the Deep

I'm not sure if I'm behind on this revelation or not, but if you haven't heard The Amphibians new CD, "Enigma of the Deep", you really should check it out. I saw them the other night in Atlanta (in full regalia), where I picked up the CD. Great show, and the CD was in constant repeat all the way home. I listened to it more than 7 times on my 420 mile trip, and more since then. These 7 songs are well crafted gems that bear more dissimilarities than similarities to their inspirations. Very much original sounding, with solid playing and exquisite tone and arrangement, and excellently produced and recorded (an understatement). These songs deserve to see the light of day.

Bravo Lads!
You guys Rawk,


Moussaka released their 3rd EP called Yaran!!!

We are proud to present to you YARAN, the 3rd EP from the Belgrade surf combo MOUSSAKA. Four killer tracks recorded all DIY and for the first time the whole band is gathered, two reverb poisoned guitars, bass and drums (first two EPs were recorded only by two members).
