I Married a DEAD MAN

Here it is: last show as an unmarried man and it's a doozy. This time my fiancee is responsible for the bulk of the playlist, and the rest will include songs from our Honeymoon destination (Thailand and Cambodia), a few nice and sweet songs, and a live set fom North Carolina's Ouroboros Boys. It's going to be pretty hectic!

As I'll be off on the other end of the globe, I'm going to have substitute DJs until May 2nd

Here's last week's playlist

Deadly Ones - Monster Surfing TIme

The well-loved but tough-to-find "Monster Surfing Time" by the Deadly Ones is finally seeing a vinyl rerelease courtesy of the Concord Records - from what I can tell its first since 1964 when Vee-Jay originally released it. A mint copy of this sells for around $200, with VG copies going for $50, so this should be much easier. This reissue will feature translucent slime green vinyl to add to the horror. Not much is known of the players on this one other than Joe South, but it's a must-play for any Halloween instro-set with some creepy effects alongside cheesy vocal moans and yowls.

The Razorblades - New Songs for the Weird People

The Razorblades have been a staple of Germany's instro scene for well over a decade now and I believe this is their fifth LP. Since I hadn't heard a full Razorblades record since Twang Machine in 2009, I was wondering whether they had changed things up a bit, especially since their video for this album featured a pretty significant amount of vocals.

Empiricals - Golden Beat

It's been a quiet couple of weeks in terms of surf releases. So while searching for more juicy Thai and Cambodian music in advance of an upcoming vacation, I stumbled upon a killer instrumental record I'd never heard of before.

It's been slow finding new surf to play, but that doesn't mean the show itself is slowing down! Oughta be bright and active the whole way through

Here's what we had last week


the tremolo beer gut - le jacquet (Under the Covers With...)
mach kung fu - hot doggin (teach a chick to dance)
sir bald diddley and his honourable big-wigs - the happy surfer (what's in the fridge)
the arrows - tee pee (apache '65)
laika & the cosmonauts - surf-ro-mania (zero gravity)
