Help us meet our monthly goal:
Started in 2000 by The Volanics Benny Hammond and The Lively Ones Las Vegas fill-in guy Skater j, the Vista IV started as a trad instro cover band but went on to develop a fringe regional southwest spin on surf they tagged "smooth surf, progressives surf, and traditional surf music" before breaking up in 2010. Beach Blanket Productions has released the bands final bunch of songs as "The Final Wave" available in cd and as downloads. This along with the early twin guitars of Benny Hammond and Skater j rendering of classic surf tunes in 2000's "Surf Music Undertow" have been re-released as free downloads from the official band site thevistaiv.com.
The Coconauts have finished their debut album: The Coconauts Get Coconauty! It's finally ready to be shipped off and printed up. It should be ready for official release within a month or so. Get Coconaughty!!!!
Danish surf rock trio The Good The Bad release their new single '023' in February, accompanied by a new film directed by Jeppe Kostrup, who infamously created the previous TGTB video hit '030'. A video teaser of the new '023' video is now online on the bands youtube channel.
'023' sees TGTB delve into harder surf riffs than ever before, coupled with their customary short and sharp twists and accompanied by lions and war cries as backing vocals. The full '023' video will be launched on January 4th, with the full single unveiled on Febrary 13th.
'030' is now on the brink of 3 million views and is viewable here.

Greetings friends of Mermen. "BLUES OF ELSEWHERE" is a new CD featuring a collection of the slower, ballad-like MERMEN tunes in a dreamy/sleepy mode. Each song is performed as a guitar duet (electric and acoustic guitar ). The idea for this recording was to offer a softer, ambient-like, intimate listening experience.
The CD will arrive from the factory DEC 15th - your orders will arrive before Christmas.
New EP of surf-influenced tunes by Shoot The Pier entitled Low Hangs The Moon just released and available digitally everywhere, with hard copies available through us.
Ellie and I are pleased with these five new tunes, which should be played loud and with beverage in hand. We hope you enjoy.
The Farfisas Are:
Frankie Farfisa: Guitar, yells
Freddie Farfisa: Bass
Philip Farfisa: Farfisa
"Big" Fredo "Daddy" Farfisa: Drums
The Farfisas formed in early 2011 on Long Island, NY by Frankie who was at that time performing with a rockabilly band named 'Hey Hey, Why Why?' and living out of a Winibago. He ran in to Freddie who worked at a local bait and tackle shop. The two hit it off and decided to form their own band.
After seeing Fredo and Philip performing as the duo 'Rude Dude', Frankie coaxed them to join what would eventually become the Farfisas. Everyone took the surname 'Farfisas' as a tip of the hat to The Ramones.
