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.
