Dick Dale March 1995: concert of the year

While looking for a foto (which I couldn´t find) I discovered a magazine from March 1995 in a free magazine (55.000 copies) called "Sonic Press" - Hamburg at Night. I believe I got it from Hermann Reuber who was one of the two agents that booked Dick Dale for a gig at the Markthalle on March 26th, 1995.

I was there like many many other fans of Rock ´n´ Roll and Instrumental Music who came from all over Germany to Hamburg. The concert was gigantic and while on the way home in a car our chests were still vibrating - pure Dick Dale Power Sound.

What I didn't realize back than was the the gig in Hamburg was announced as "The concert of the month" !!! For surf music fans like myself it was the concert of the past three decades - for the first time to be at a concert of the king of the surf guitar himself - DICK DALE.

I remember 17 years earlier in March 1978 Jim Pewter asked me if it would be good to send Dick to Germany and Europe. I replied that he is not that well known in Germany and a concert tour must be prepared. Jim added "meeting djs, shaking hands and so on".

The Routes - The Twang Machine

image

The new album by The Routes "The Twang Machine" will be released on LP by Topsy Turvy Records on June 3rd.
The Double Crown Records / Otitis Media Records CD release will follow shortly after. It will also be available on most digital platforms.

Formed in 2006, although far away from the Tokyo garage scene, The Routes are undoubtedly one of the most prolific underground garage bands in Japan of the last decade. 2021 saw The Routes release three studio albums (two of which were instrumental), taking their album tally up to 10 studio albums. It’s 2022, and not showing any signs of slowing down The Routes bring you “The Twang Machine”.

Imagine a bizarre alternate universe in which the Moog synthesizer was invented before the guitar, and visiting thrift stores you’d find records such as The Ventures “Guitar Indigo” and Dick Dale “Twanged On Bach!?! Well, here is a record that could well be from that universe! The Routes – Twang Machine. Yes! Ten slices of Kraftwerk arranged into mid-sixties instrumental rock ’n’ roll/surf guitar bangers. An aural testament to The Routes’ love and respect of the music of Kraftwerk. Hear Showroom Dummies reimagined as a Spaghetti Western film opening theme, Radioactivity drenched in reverb ala The Astronauts… Trans Europe Express at shinkansen speed racing to burst the sound barrier, and many more of Kraftwerk’s classic songs as you could never imagine them.
Whether you see it as musical blasphemy or musical alchemy, this album is set to become a cult classic, destined to irk or jerk future generations for years to come.
