SRW261 Mark Malibu and the Wasagas Haunted Hot Rod Beach Party (Digipack CD)


The fourth full length release from Mark Malibu and the Wasagas is more than “just another” CD. The disc contains 18 Surf & Horror instrumentals compiled from their last three vinyl EP releases, plus rare and unreleased tracks released for the first time on CD. Including audience favourites like “Hip Shake Go-Go Baby” and “Hellbent for Speed”. Once again the artwork was created by Darren “KING” Merinuk.

Woven into the playlist is a 6 chapter radio drama “The Haunted Hotrod Beach Party” written and recorded especially for this release. Inspired by shows form the golden age of radio, BBC’s "Appointment with Fear", the Goon Show, EC comic books like "Tales from the Crypt" and mystery cartoons like Scooby Doo.

I DARE YOU… to listen to this entire disc, … at NIGHT… IN THE DARK !!!

Merry BAT-mas!

You think Gotham City is a peaceful city this Christmas? Ho Ho Ho! Put your gum under your seats, hold your nose, and get ready to deodorize Batman and fumigate his diabolical enemies! OUT NOW! "Batman Smells", from horror surf rockers Shriek if You Know What I Did Last Friday the 13th, is an ode to the season of The Caped Crusader's fetid, foul, funky, malodorous, putrid, rancid, rank, reeking suit and is available for streaming and purchase on Bandcamp! For those who dare download the single will receive additional digitized Yuletide gifts! So be sure to use that grapple gun and swing over to the link below! Will Robin sprout an embryo encased in a hardened calcium carbonate shell? Can the Batmobile keep its tires from relinquishing the axle? Is this the ghastly end of our dynamic duo? For Batman's sake, keep your fingers crossed and your nasal passages plugged at all times! Same Shriek-time, same Shriek-channel!

Surf Beat '23 by Los Grainders

NEW ARTIST SIGNING! Presenting... Mexico City's LOS GRAINDERS! We don't sign many bands to the MuSick label - yes, we're very picky - so when we do, it's a special thing. And Los Grainders are a very special band. Five young and extremely talented musicians from Ciudad De México, Los Grainders approach their love for surf music and instrumental rock with passion, drive and taste. The band's debut album "SURF BEAT '23" (a clever tribute to Jon & The Nightriders' seminal LP from 1980) has some of the most engaging and movin' surf instro music I have heard in ages. "SURF BEAT '23" is now available on Bandcamp where you can buy it and stream it digitally (it's also available on Spotify, Apple Music, etc). Songs like "Sharp Stone" with its intense and dramatic twists and turns, the dark yet beautiful "Santa Ana Winds," the hypnotic and groove-heavy "Deep Grotto," and the melodic and fetching ode to oceanic powers "Shell Pink," are some of the highlights on this brilliant debut album. For those who have to have physical records, we have teamed up with our friends at the TABU RECORDINGS label to co-release the vinyl LP version of "SURF BEAT '23" to be available in 2024 and we can't wait for that. In the meantime, give "SURF BEAT '23" a listen with the links below and dig the deep and reverb-filled sound of LOS GRAINDERS!
