- Surf Music
Help us meet our monthly goal:
The Hollow Grinders are beyond sad to share that our drummer, Dr Dirk Thrust, has been diagnosed with Motor Neurone Disease.
We're fundraising by releasing an album "IN THRUST WE TRUST" with 47 songs from NZ based artists.
It includes surf tunes from THE HOLLOW GRINDERS, THE CTHULUS, KING KAIJU and THE BIFF BANGLE EXPERIENCE, plus a cool Morricone-inspirted piece from EMPASSE with the Hollow Grinders' Otis Uh guesting on twangy guitar.
There's also a ton of other punk garage and weirdness that some of you will love and others will skip!
The album is at Link
I'll now try to embed direct links to the surf tunes:
Active continuously since 1996, The Hollow Grinders are Aotearoa/New Zealand's longest-running surf band ever. Their new album Surfin' Taniwha collects 14 original surf tunes honed through their famously energetic live sets over the past 10 years or so.
Exclusively on bandcamp, you can get the Triple Deluxe edition, which includes the Surfin' Taniwha album on digipak CD, a boss COLOURED VINYL 7" single, AND a digital-only rarities compilation with ANOTHER 19 Hollow Grinders tunes that you can only get by buying this pack.
Taniwha (TUN-ee-fah), a sea, river or lake dwelling creature from Māori mythology.
