Did you think I made a huge list of surf releases for nothing? I listen to a lot of surf (though definitely not all of it) and this year I'm going to give credit where it's due by awarding outstanding instro groups with a dinky .png file with their name on it.
Yikes! I meant to post about this when it first started, but there's only a week left and about a third to go!
Satan's Pilgrims have been around for 20 years and everything they've released along the way is worth owning (at least I'd say that based on the ones I own). They need YOUR help for two purposes:
the bambi molesters - mindbender (as the dark wave swells)
los freneticos - ROMPAN TODO (el playa)
krontjong devils - the lone surfer (action!)
the shockwave - She Bop (contact from space)
link protrudi and the jaymen - avalanche (drive it live)
the t-bones - rail-vette (boss drag)
the kickstands - the scrambler (black boots and bikes)
Dave Clark Five - chaquita (dave clark five and the playbacks)
the buddies - skateboard u.s.a. (go go with the buddies)
link wray - mustang (the original rumble)
As we head on into December, naturally it's fun to corral all the releases of the past year and do a little retrospective. Which means culling together what's been released. That's what this is. The amount that I have published here is 71 LPs, 44 EPs, and 4 reissues. And it's probably missing a LOT of stuff; I almost forgot to include The Madeira's Sonic Cataclysm so if that slips through, who else knows what did.
So I could use your help! If you know that something's missing, leave a comment and I'll update it.
If you haven't heard Spindrift before, you better get on it. They've made some absolutely killer Spaghetti Western records and put on an excellent live show. They're not always instrumental, but usually they are, and the one preview we've got here appears to be as well. This appears to be a few extras from their soundtrack to Ghost of the West (which I haven't heard yet!), looks like only three tracks. More than anything, I'm excited to see this on Burger Records, a light-hearted punk label that I always thought could use a surf group.
