GET THREE COFFINS READY!

HEY CHECK OUT GET THREE COFFINS READY! "The Members Of "Get Three Coffins Ready" Cull From Years Of Stage Experience As Well As Countless Hours Of Devouring All Things Pop Culture To Create A Sound That's As Innovative And Original, Yet Eerily Familiar All At The Same Time. The Band Uses Elements Of Surf, Country, Garage Rock, And Rockabilly All Filtered Through A Sparce And Direct Punk Rock Approach That Leaves No Room For Bullsh*t. The Songs Range From Dust-Covered Spaghetti Western Scorchers, To Dreamy Reverb Surf Meditations, Gritty Garage Pop To 60's Style Motorcycle Rock. And All The While Keep It Quick And Calculated. This Cannon Is Aimed At The Dance Floor, So No Vocal Disruptions Or Wanking Allowed. Their Love Of Movies, Television, And Comic Books Is As Much A Part Of The Band As Their Extensive Musical Knowledge, And Their Music Sometimes Feels Like The Sonic Equivalent Of A Dusty 8mm Film Playing On A Yellowed Screen. But Without Warning They Can Whip It Back To A Rock & Roll Revival Camp Complete With Sweat And Beer. As A Band It's All About Excitement. To Witness Their Live Show Is To Understand, Here Is A Band That Loves Rock & Roll As A Culture, Not As Some Specific Genre. Don't Miss Them In Your Town." - Adam Hester-2005

The Surfites - Big Pounder CD With Pre-Release Bonus Track

We are excited to announce the upcoming release of the debut full-length CD by The Surfites, called Big Pounder. The disc is packed solid with great, original surf instrumentals.

The Surfites (www.thesurfites.com) are a gang of landlocked gremmies playing instrumental surf music in the old school style. Formed in 2003 by the two Fjellgren brothers of now defunct Swedish surf band the Daytonas. The Surfites are mainly a studio group with buddies Folke Bergkvist (bass), Henry Karlsson (piano/organ) and Gunnar Lindholm (drums) dropping by for the recording sessions. Klas and Jack Fjellgren play all the guitar parts and write the songs, as well as arranging and producing the recordings. The guys have just completed recording material for a debut album in their basement studio and the finished CD will be released on Double Crown Records on March 27th 2007. One of their songs, "Surfville", will appear on the upcoming Sazanami Records compilation Wild Sazanami Beat #4. Also, be sure to check out the Surfites on MySpace (www.myspace.com/thesurfites). Cowabunga!

The Surfites - Big Pounder CD is now available for order with credit card and Paypal. If you order before the release date of March 27th you will receive a free bonus track called "Drag-U-La Beat" immediately. The CD will then be shipped to you on it's release date. If you are a subscriber to the Double Crown Music Club (http://www.dblcrown.com/dcmc.html) you can also get this free bonus track - just drop us a line for details (records@dblcrown.com).
