"PDX A Go-Go" NEW cd surf comp of Portland current surf bands

PDX A Go-Go... Five bands...ten songs...that preserve a moment in time, the summer of 2012, when instrumental surf music rode the crest of a wave in Portland, OR. Musicians are forming surf bands, several venues are giving these bands a stage and an audience is growing. Duff's Garage, the club that always gave instro surf a home, is ground zero. There's an excitement about the bands and the music. Many different directions are being explored by these bands, proving that a subgenre thought by many to be one-dimensional is anything but.

The Surf Weasels, WaveSauce, Susan SurfTone, The Outer Space Heaters, and Shade 13 offer you a sample of what's going on here on the northern end of the west coast. We hope you enjoy it and that you come to a few shows. Pick up a copy of PDX A Go-Go from any of the bands on the compilation or wait until CDBaby has it in stock (we'll let you know... just check back here in a few weeks.) Tell your friends "there's a party going on here in Portland that you should know about"... come and join us.

The Phantom Four new album "Morgana"

I'm not sure if anyone has mentioned it or not but the new Phantom Four album "Morgana" is offically out. I've heard the entire album and must say it has everything you come to expect from Phantom Frank and the gang. Yes this is the instrumental album, not the "Sounds From The Obscure" featuring Arguido aka RudeBoy. You have several options when purchasing either or both. I personally don't mind the Argido material as I was a fan of his former group Urban Dance Squad.
