SRW219 - The Angry Red Planet - "Captain... The Klingons Have Surrounded Uranus!" (Jacket CD)

SRW219 - The Angry Red Planet - "Captain... The Klingons Have Surrounded Uranus!" (Jacket CD)

Combining elements of surf, rockabilly, 60’s psychedelia, Morricone, 70’s TV show themes, vintage sci fi/horror, and a touch of sophomoric humour; The Angry Red Planet merges the sounds of the rock n roll’s early years with the punk and thrash of the ‘80s. An instrumental mutant hailing from Canada’s North West, creating unexpected and bizarre musical soundscapes... for those who dare!

The Angry Red Planet’s debut features vintage aural aesthetics channeled through unique and unlikely arrangements. Alternately blistering, ridiculous, and introspective, “Captain... The Klingons Have Surrounded Uranus!” is a warped journey through 8 disparate yet cohesive tracks of guitar forward instrumentals that don’t take themselves too seriously.

SRW213 Jim and the Sea Dragons - Sous les Paves, la Plage! (Jacket CD)

‘Sous les Pave, la Plage’ is a tribute to French instrumental bands from the early 1960’s. With influences ranging from Gypsy Jazz to Hank Marvin and the Shadows, the new CD is an exciting look in to the pre-Beatles instrumental music scene that was happening in France.

Jim and the Sea Dragons are a guitar-centric Florida based combo with influences ranging from 60's Surf, Pop and a dash of Exotica.

Dick Dale March 1995: concert of the year

While looking for a foto (which I couldn´t find) I discovered a magazine from March 1995 in a free magazine (55.000 copies) called "Sonic Press" - Hamburg at Night. I believe I got it from Hermann Reuber who was one of the two agents that booked Dick Dale for a gig at the Markthalle on March 26th, 1995.

I was there like many many other fans of Rock ´n´ Roll and Instrumental Music who came from all over Germany to Hamburg. The concert was gigantic and while on the way home in a car our chests were still vibrating - pure Dick Dale Power Sound.

What I didn't realize back than was the the gig in Hamburg was announced as "The concert of the month" !!! For surf music fans like myself it was the concert of the past three decades - for the first time to be at a concert of the king of the surf guitar himself - DICK DALE.

I remember 17 years earlier in March 1978 Jim Pewter asked me if it would be good to send Dick to Germany and Europe. I replied that he is not that well known in Germany and a concert tour must be prepared. Jim added "meeting djs, shaking hands and so on".

The World's Number 1 Surf Music Station Celebrates 9 Year Anniversary

image

Did you know that today is a special day? It’s the 9 year anniversary of the the world's number 1 surf music station and what an incredible nine years it has been! It’s hard to believe that even just nine years ago there was no radio station dedicated to surf and instro. In July 2013 we made that a reality, for the first time ever, with new bands being broadcast shoulder to shoulder with established acts.

The number of bands in the surf community has flourished too! We would like to thank all the listeners, bands and labels that have supported us. Don’t forget we are donation supported and you can financially support us with a donation or a StreamAd (which is even better if you are a band or label).

Have a great day and may your reverb tails be unlimited.
