Insect Surfer music on TV!!

Our music publisher gal, who we've been working with for about 7 years, has FINALLY been able to place a tune of ours on TV!!

This Sun Feb 5th, our song "77 Gaza Strip" will be featured at some point on the Showtime channel show 'Californication'. I don't even know what scene, and hopefully it's not something obscenely embarrassing!! (I've never seen the show) but, hey, WE'RE ON TV !!!


Insect Surfers need a new guitarist!

With the departure of esteemed multi-instrumentalist Marty Tippens (who will not be playing live until his Ph.D is completed), the Insect Surfers (Planet Earth's Longest-Running Modern Surf Band) are now on the lookout for a second guitarist. Minimum daily requirements are a sense of energy, humor, and a modicum of instrumental competency. If you're reading this than hopefully you've heard of us or have an idea of what we sound like. influences range from Link Wray, Dick Dale and Davie Allan to Quicksilver and Television. Or from The Ventures and The Belairs to The Ramones, Iggy, and B52s. If you're a surf/instro guitarist (or know somebody who sounds like one) please feel free to send an email to insectsurfers@sbcglobal.net . We're based in the Los Angeles area. Mahalo !
