Mike Barbwire: Crossing the Atlantic

For the first time ever, playing a few selected shows in NorCal, Mike Barbwire, bandleader of infamous Swedish act The Barbwires will team up with San Francisco surf heroes THE DEADBEATS on the first week of July, 2011. This brand new cross-Atlantic collaboration goes under the name of Mike Barbwire with The Deadbeats, and what you can expect is older stuff, new stuff, and probably a few newly composed songs. How does it taste? Well take 1 oz Swedish stored ice-cold wild surf-guitar, add 4 cups of freshly harvested even wilder-sounding sun-drenched NorCal surf musicians, add some light and dark rum, falernum syrup, throw in a pinch of frenzy and a handful of joy for the art of surf music. How this exotic cocktail tastes can only be found out at any of these exclusive shows!

  • RIVERVIEW LODGE, Antioch - June 28
  • FORBIDDEN ISLAND, Alameda - June 29
  • SAN MATEO FESTIVAL, San Mateo - July 1
  • NORCAL KNOCKOUT, Vallejo - July 2

A brand new Mike Barbwire 45 rpm is to be released simultaneously with this tour. Here is a short teaser video:

The 45 was recorded in Sweden in May with The Blue Ocean Six featuring members from The Domestic Bumblebees, The Hives, The Dragtones, and Big Band Splash.
