- Surf Music
Help us meet our monthly goal:
(Posted on behalf of Dr. Gangrene)
Hello everyone - My name is Larry Underwood, better known as TV horror host Dr Gangrene in Nashville TN. My show is on our local WB and broadcasts every Sat night into all of Middle TN and Southern KY.
I am in need music videos, and nothing goes better with old b&w monster movies than great surf music. I've had Gein and the Graverobbers on the show, from when they came through town this past November, and I know Eddie Angel and plan to get him on the show at some point too (he lives right here in Nashville).
If any of you have music videos together, I'd sure like to show them on the air. I also am always in need of cool background music, so if any surf bands out there have instrumentals we could use on the air, I'd love to get a copy. I use Gein on the show almost every episode in the backgrounds somewhere.
In the May 2006 issue of Guitar Player magazine, there is an article called "99 Ways to Play Better: Tips By Your Favorite Guitar Heroes". This article features little snippets of wisdom, tips, and tricks from the royalty of guitar players. You know, guys like Jimmy Page, Jeff Beck, Joe Satriani, Joe Pass, Ritchie Blackmore, Carlos Santana, Jerry Garcia, Eric Johnson, John Lee Hooker, and the list goes on and on. Well, my eyes nearly popped out of my head when I saw that our own Dave Wronski, Slacktone guitar wizard and Jon & The Nightriders veteran, was quoted not once, but three times! That's right, 3 out of the 99 tips were from Dave Wronski! More than anyone else, I believe.
Congratulations Dave on getting the recognition you deserve!
Kudos to Guitar Player, who have been on a roll lately for giving nods to surf bands like Pollo Del Mar, Meshugga Beach Party, & Slacktone; not to mention to giving a column to Deke Dickerson!
