Unreleased surf album by Lee Hazlewood

Woodchucks - Crusing For Surf Bunnies

Watch out for this new release which is a found tape with unreleased instrumentals by Lee Hazlewood from the early 1960s. In the link above you can have a look at the previously unreleased titles created by Lee himself.
The album will be released as a vinyl album as well as a CD.


The Drip Switch is here! $50 introductory price.

ATTN: Surf Guitarists both rhythm and lead:

As veteran surf guitarists ourselves, Mel and I consider this pedal a must have for anyone using a Fender style reverb tank. Surfy bear kit builders, you can easily wire in a jack to accommodate the pedal as well, if you haven't already.

We will be setting up a demonstration area at the SG101 convention, but if you're not coming and you'd like to pre-order one at the discounted intro price, we've created a page on Mel's Alameda Guitars website with more information and a contact form at the bottom.

“Sleepwalk? What’s that? There’s no such thing as a slow dance song on The Chukukos’ latest album, Deep Latin Surf Attack! From La Virgen De Las Barricadas all the way to Surfeando en Los 90’s, The Chukukos never let up on the high-speed sonic surf shockwave! This is the sort of surf that wouldn’t be out of place in a high speed car chase!" - Derk - The Surfphony of Derstruction 2000
