Surfphony of Derstruction October 19th

Just a regular ol' kick ass SURF SHOW BABY!!!

I played The Space Plan, a local Windsor surf band from around 2000. The liner notes of their CD said that they won the Best Local Band jammie from CJAM that year. Pretty sweet to see some surf appreciation almost a decade ago!

geeze, it's this song!

I was barely able to squeeze this song in cause I had to play it like no other! goddamn i said GODDAMN! it reminds me of this song from Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Turtles in Time


since the Surfphony is suiting up for Halloween, I gave listeners a little taste of the Halloweenies show coming up next week! I played The Ghastly Ones' Banshee Beach from their album Unearthed, a collection of re-recordings of The Ghastly Ones' favorite tunes from their earlier albums.

This is off the halloween compilation Halloween Hootenanny

Here is the playlist for Oct. 19
the space plan tread lightly
the eradicators friends & enemies
the volcanos deora
huevos rancheros endsville
the ghastly ones banshee beach
the chesterfield kings land beyond the moon
the reverb syndicate bolshevik boogie
kenny & the fiends moon shot
the aqua velvets aqua nova
the crunchendoes butterfingers
the sharks BIG SURF
the ramblers hangin' one
blue jeans yogiri no nagisa
the twin tones capello de mariachi
the von drats instant soup just add soup

Stay tuned to CJAM 99.1 whether you're on the dial or on the computer! The Surfphony of Derstruction will be presenting Halloweenies! a funkin' Halloween show DIG IT

Surfphony of Derstruction October 12th

Hello there!

What was once The Symphony of Derstruction is now The SURFphony of Derstruction. I am doing a new program focusing on Surf music on Tuesdays at 7 PM.

This week (Oct 12) we had the usual surfin' time with a special look at the famous surf tune, Misirlou. I discussed the origins of Misirlou, how it came to prominence in Surf music and the song's cult status along with covers and reinterpretations of Misirlou.

Dick Dale's Misirlou:

Takeshi Terauchi (The Surfphony's favorite international surf guitarist) and his interpretation of Misirlou:

Also heard on the Surfphony this week were Canadian surf ensembles The Reverb Syndicate and Luau or Die!

Check out The Reverb Syndicate's website and myspace

Check out Luau or Die's myspace and facebook page

If you're in the London area, you can see Luau or Die play with Rockabilly-Swing band The Hi-Tones at the London Music Club on November 23rd! Dig it!

Next week there will be lots of Surf! I will also start posting playlists next week.
