Help us meet our monthly goal:
Well, it's been a hell of a month to kick this year off!!!! Kinda sucky actually. After losing our drummer to the big stage in the sky, our bass player, Mike Warner has decided to call it quits with the Mighty Surf Lords.
We have hired a new drummer, and have spoken to a couple bass players who are willing to keep this project alive. But it is going to take time, yet again, to be ready to perform.
On a good note ( no not Bb ), the new album is currently being duplicated, and I got a release date of Febuary 14, 2008.
The CD's will be for sale at a normal price of $15. And to all my fellow SG101'ers, $10 bucks!!!
Give me a shout and I will put an order together as soon as I receive the discs. I will have to catch up my bank account this week so I can use paypal. lol.
This is a true story about how surfing brought together one of the most commercially successful SoCal surf bands of the '90s.
It all started in The Doheny Long Board Surfing Association Surf Club. In 1993, it scheduled its annual '60s Surf Contest. The rules said you could ride only pre-1968 longboards, 9 feet or longer. You had to dress the part, too. That meant no modern wetsuits and no leashes.
The Surf Club decided to have a jam session after the contest, using some of the organization's musical talent. Member Chuck McElvain, a surfer and guitar player who worked for Fender Guitars, recruited the talent. He hooked up with Joe Kurkowski, Preston Wilson, Doug Harlow, Bill Swanson and some other buddies from Fender.
We are so sorry to have to announce that we lost our drummer, Jeff (FIRECYN) Campaigne, last night to a heartattack.
He was a great band mate, a great father and family man, and one of my best friends.
Jeff will certainly be missed by ALL of those who had ever met him.

Recently a major galactic event has occured in the Pacific Northwest, a gamma ray burst larger than any in the last 50 years. Scientists believe the event occured the moment a NW surf band known as "Retroactive Gamma Rays" released their debut CD. The Retroactive Gamma Rays self-released debut CD, "Activate!" is now available online.
Twelve songs are available on RGR's, "Activate!", along with sound effects and sound clips from cult classic movie favorites like Hot Rods to Hell, Repoman, The Day The Earth Stood Still and more. Clint Beachwood from A Day at the Beach says, "Great CD!!". Speakeasy, the eighth track from the album, was the first song played on Clint Beachwoods November 15th radio show. More songs from the recently released CD are currently playing on Retroactive Gamma Rays myspace page here, www.myspace.com/retroactivegammarays
The CD is now available at a number of online CD purchasing portals, including CDBaby.com, Double Crown Records mail order and Deep Eddy Records mail order. Below are links to the three websites were you can purchase the CD.
For those of you wondering how this natural occuring event may effect the Great Northwest, and the world, most experts believe,"The only side effects will be increased foot tapping and stereo volume knobs being tweaked to the left slightly more that usual, but everything should pretty much stay the same." These effects, however may ultimately be perminent and spread throughout the world according to speciests in the field. In response to this forever changing release by the Retroactive Gamma Rays Retroactive_Taj responds, "Buy it.". Well put Taj, well put.
