Reverb Babylon, the new Album from Terry "Buffalo" Ware
Also on I-Tunes and Amazon.
The Man From RavCon Rides Again! is a full on guitar-based Spaghetti Western CD with a twist. Like the latter-day spaghetti western soundtracks of the late 60's and early 70's, the eleven tracks that make up The Man From RavCon Rides Again! incorporate elements of another popular music form of the time: Progressive Rock. In addition to the simple but effective deep surfy single-note guitar melodies present on the previous releases, you'll hear light prog embellishments such as Hammond Organ, Mellotron Strings, Flute and Choir as well as unique time signatures and tempo changes. The new sound has been described as "progressive twang" and it fits.
The Man From RavCon Rides Again! is now available for download at CD Baby. The physical CD will be available soon.
The TomorrowMen are ready to hit the surf/instro rock scene with their debut CD release, “It’s About Time!”. Led by guitarist Mycroft Eloi (aka Danny Snyder – Meshugga Beach Party and Frankie & The Poolboys), the TomorrowMen will blow you away with their unique blend of traditional and modern surf rock, adding a slight Man Or Astro-man influenced sci-fi sound to several of their tunes. The songs are powerful, melodic and sure to stick in your head for years to come. What makes the The TomorrowMen stand apart from the majority of surf bands playing today is their priority on creating memorable melodies and presenting them in very inventive arrangements. When placed in the midst of a really strong rhythm section such as they have here, you end up with a recipe for some of the best surf music you’ll ever hear.

The seminal surf instro album from 1980, Jon & The Nightriders' "Surf Beat '80" was released on CD for the first time on 7 June!! All of the tracks have been digitally remixed and remastered. There are SIX bonus tracks included, several appearing for the first time. I expect the CD will be available on Amazon and CDBaby, as well as the following websites:
I'll also have copies available at the Surfer Joe Festival and all of the upcoming John Blair Band tour dates in Italy later in June (http://www.surferjoemusic.com/johnblair/).
The TomorrowMen are proud to offically announce our CD release party and show on June 18th at The Hotel Utah in San Francisco. It was a long time coming - the band has been together 5 years (give or take a few thousand) and we are incredibly excited that this CD is finally completed.
It's jam packed with lots of your favorite Tmen songs painstakingly produced and recorded in 4-D sound by Pollo Del Mar's Ferenc Dobronyi, who just happens to be playing at the show with us, along with our good friends Blammos!
This is a rare Saturday night show at The Hotel Utah, 21+ and $10 to get in. Hope to see you!
If this isn't reason enough to come, Lady Reverb and I are also celebrating our 25th anniversary! Don't buy us anything, just come on down and bring your friends and buy the brand new CD "It's About Time!
-Mycroft Eloi aka Danny Snyder

Aloha Screwdriver's debut CD is out and available through their online store, or as a download through iTunes and Amazon.
No Way Out, is an absurdly analog 8-song EP recorded live to tape with no edits, no overdubs, and no room for mistakes. No one records music this way anymore, and for good reason--it's a pain in the ass. The end result sounds as unique as the band--reverb-drenched surf rock played at a blistering speed.
Full song track previews, videos and photos are available on the Aloha Screwdriver's Facebook page.
The Secret Samurai's sophmore CD has finally been released and is available now! The CD contains 13 tracks, 10 of which are original tunes. Zanshin has been a year in the making as we began work on the tracking in February 2010.
The CD is available now directly from our website:
and will be available soon at CD Baby, iTunes, Double Crown Records and other locations.
The Lava Pups debut CD "Into The Flow" featuring 8 original tunes and SG101ers Paul The Pyronaut on rhythm guitar and JetBlue on bass is now available!
The Lava Pups is a collaborative effort created out of our love for surf and rock instrumental music and desire to have fun. Our debut CD shows the influences of Dick Dale, Link Wray, Duane Eddy and Paul Johnson. The songs range from in-your-face double-picked, glissando-ladened garage surf like "Sea Witch" to the sweetly dissonant ballad "Pacifica Blue."
