Phantom Operators Release “Surf Dopes on Punk” Cover Album

After a short hiatus, The Phantom Operators have released a 5-song EP, “Surf Dopes on Punk”. This EP features surf-soaked versions of punk classics by bands such as the Dead Kennedys, Agent Orange, the Misfits, and Social Distortion. The band considers this release a tribute to some of the bands that influenced them and hopes that listeners look up the originals after listening to their interpretations. The Operators also have plans to release a full-length album of original material in the new year. The band’s last full-length was 2016’s Hasta Muerte. “Surf Dopes on Punk” along with all of the band’s other material is available for purchase/download at Bandcamp

Stories from Shamehill New Single Release!

El Salto del Jalapeño / Queen of Tides

On a rare day off while touring California last January and February (2017) the lady and gentlemen of Stories from Shamehill hit the Hobby Shop Recording Studios in Los Angeles to record a two-track single. The Hobby Shop is located in Highland Park, Los Angeles where Quentin Tarantino shot Reservoir Dogs. With that state of mind and driven by almost a week of touring, Jarrod Keith (The Volcanics, Boss Fink) took them under his wings and recorded a slightly fuzzed-up version of their party anthem ‘El Salto del Jalapeño’ on the a-side! And while not even one week in the U.S.A. the Californian influences are already clearly reflected in b-side ‘Queen of Tides’, a hymn to Los Angeles and the Venice Beach Boardwalk in particular. Californian Dreamin’!

This record is a lasting reminder of our first American tour. We especially like to thank Jeff ‘Big Tiki Dude’ Hanson for making it happen. We also like to thank Sjors, Clint Beachwood, Frankie De La Torre, Marie & Jonpaul, Jarrod Keith, Andy Vaughan, Cousin Mary & Ken, David Greenfield, Ferenc & Karen, KFJC, Lorenzo Valdambrini, Mike Papageorgiou and anyone we missed for taking care of us.

Thanks to Alvino & The Dwells, The Volcanics, Aloha Screwdriver, Thee Swank Bastards, Blackball Bandits, Black Magic Beach Part, The Trabants, Insect Surfers, Hypnotic IV, Frankie & The Pool Boys, Fascinating Creatures of the Deep and The Gillbillies for sharing the stage with us!

Touring California was a combination of musical highlights and the warmth and hospitality of the global surf music scene. New friendships and unforgettable experiences. Surf’s up!

Special thanks to Jarrod, Frankie and Sjors for joining us on this unforgettable day in the studio! We made magic!
Hee-Hoo!

Recorded and mixed by Jarrod Keith on the 30th of january 2017 at The Hobby Shop Recording Studios West, Highland Park, CA 90042 Los Angeles, California. Produced by Jarrod Keith and Joris de Haan. Mastered at d² Mastering (Los Angeles, California). Artwork and photography by Joris de Haan.
