The latest release from Australia’s favourite surf guitarist and member of the legendary Atlantics – Martin Cilia.

Inspired by a 2012 trip to Hawaii and California (the Hawaiians call it “Kaleponi”) and a chance meeting with surf guitar god Dick Dale, “Going To Kaleponi” has Martin and his classic guitar collection in full flight.

You’ll hear the sounds of cool breezes in palm trees, rolling ocean surf, skateboards on Santa Monica boulevard and many more.

New Aloha Screwdriver music video

We're very happy to finally show of Aloha Screwdriver's first real music video for our song "Doom Buggy Hellride".

We shot the whole thing in our hometown of Alameda, CA. I'm sure that a lot of you will recognize the tiki bar, Forbidden Island. Our friend Bryan Wright shot and edited the whole thing, and we're super proud of it.

The song is available now as a single on iTunes But you can also get it for free by sharing on Twitter. Or if that's not your style, we're also giving it away if you sign our mailing list.

Full album due out on 4/25/13. Pre-order available here.

Thanks for watching!

"Wild Surf Guitars" CD by The Insanitizers, Release Party

The Insanitizers released their 20 song CD "Wild Surf Guitars." The Insanitizers expand the borders of surf guitar into classical guitar, classic rock, modern rock, country, polka, flamenco, and rockabilly. Nineteen of these songs put the guitar front and center; there is no room for a vocalist. This CD tells stories of adventure, mystery and energy with guitar instrumentals in an involving experience. The band has fun performing, and when you listen you will be part of the fun. 

This CD also introduces Rodriel & Gabrigo, the Insanitizers Flamenco Surf Rockabilly (Flamencobilly) Acoustic Duo, with three memorable frenetic instrumentals based on surf guitar songs. Come hear the Duo's performance at the CD Release Party, starting 6pm Friday March 22, 2013, at Music Millennium, 3158 E. Burnside St., Portland, Oregon. The performance will be for an hour and there is no cost to attend.

Image

If you follow Double Crown on Facebook you probably already saw this, but we're really stoked to announce the release of "7+ Inches Of Love" by The Apemen. It's a reissue of their popular 2000 release that quickly went out of print. We've added 3 extra live tracks as well as "24 Hours From Tulsa", which featured on the That's New Pussycat compilation CD in Italy (which explains the "+" in the CD title).

The physical CD release will be followed by digital release for the first time. The whole CD has been remastered for the best sound quality possible for these tracks.

Tracks: Bajjad - Crunch - Invasion Of The Apemen - Cruisin' - Intoxica - El Tortura - Percolator Stomp - Pogo a Gogo - Toronado - Surf Dracula (45 version) - Baha-Ree-Ba - When Johnny Comes Wreckin' Home - Shake Your Hoover (alternate) - Squad Car - Het Grote Surffeest (live at KFJC) - Miserlou (live at KFJC) - Queen Jacula (live) - Cor Steijn Rides The Wild (live) - Toronado/Bongo Bongo (live) - 24 Hours From Tulsa
