The Del Sonics Launch

The Del Sonics have arrived, and are embarking on their "World Domination Imminent" tour! Commencing in their hometown of Brizvegas, Australia, the run of dates continues until total global power is achieved.

The engine room rhythm section of The Big Kahuna (bass) and Krank Daddy (drums) power like the Starship Enterprise on steroids. Out the front and directing traffic on Fender Mustang guitar (and with aircraft landing technology at his toes) is the one-man tsunami, Twang! It's surf music, Jim, but not as we know it........

Sounds like, hmmmm..... The Ramones and The Ventures hanging out at Frank Zappa's beach house with John Coltrane, Jimi Hendrix and The Monkees. Later, Ritchie Blackmore and The Ronettes will drop in for fondue and bikini Twister!

See ya in the surf, grommets!

Goodbye to The Sundogs


Robbie Allen Ditches ‘Sundogs’; Says Hello to ‘The Outer Edge’

Sacramento, CA – With the band’s one-year anniversary looming just months away, Robbie Allen along with his band mates Josh Hester and Gary Christensen, have announced that they will be dropping the current name of the band (“The Sundogs”) for a title that better portrays their image and style of music. The surprise announcement comes in the wake of a legal hang-up regarding the use of the band’s current name, already a registered trademark of a Berkeley, CA based roots rock group. “The Sundogs” name was originally coined by Gary Christensen after much deliberation between the band’s original members. Gary and Robbie have both stated that it was not their intention to infringe on the rights of the current trademark holders and, at that time they were unaware of the Bay Area group (who ceased from touring nearly ten years ago) that had seven major releases – some of which are still available at select retailers. The band’s recent move to the title “The Outer Edge” was mutually agreed upon by the members of the group after considering over two-hundred titles. The decision was based on legal advice from the band’s attorney. In response to an email, Robbie Allen commented from his apartment overseas: “We think that while the core theme of our music draws heavily on the instrumental guitar trends of the 60s including surf music, on the same token, our style is very versatile and constantly adapting to the melting pot of influences and creative whims common to all three members of our band, not to mention the people we collaborate with behind the scenes. I think the new name reflects the edgier-sounding ‘acid surf rock’ vibe that is beginning to define us more and more.” The band has also decided to maintain “Robbie Allen” as part of the group’s name so as to avoid confusion during the transition.
