Help us meet our monthly goal:
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.

Threesome is a new Serbian combo that delivers the sound of explosive surf punk that doesn’t care much about time or place. “Adriatica” is their debut full-length CD release, packed with 12 blistering surf rock instros, some with a slight punk/indie rock influence. There are 11 originals, plus a cover of Man Or Astroman’s “Interstellar Hardrive”.
I have recently made my Surf Christmas album available through CD Baby and Itunes. It fun music to play during the holidays. Thanks.

“They are here to put the URF! back in surf! They love tremolo, they love beer and they've got guts!”
Denmark’s - no, let’s just say it as it is - the world’s leading surf-orchestra is back with a new, old, album.
The Tremolo Beer Gut is known for doing everything in the old-fashioned way, but compared to most other
bands within the genre, they have always insisted on stepping out of the very schematic and rigid conventions
for surf-music. From the very beginning, it has been film-music and surf-elements, which are reflected
in the more contemporary music that has been the inspiration for the band. When The Tremolo Beer Gut
started on the music scene in 1999, it reverberated around the world’s surf forums: A new band was in the
midst of reinventing the genre backwards. A lot of reviewers on fanzines noted that: The sound is 100%
authentic old school, but the Tremolo Beer Gut writes fundamental original music, which takes the fast
track of the often reactionary songwriting that characterizes the genre.
