THE SURFPHONY OF DERSTRUCTION BOOOOOOOOOOOOO THOUSAND 2K14!

GOOD EVENING! THE BIG COUNT VON D IS BACK, DRAC!
Count Von Derkula, #1 Vampire and host of the greatest nightmare mash around, The Surfphony of Derstruction BOOOOOOO-THOUSAND, has returned and of course, I have invited quite the motley crew of monsters, ghouls, and all sorts of things that go bump in the night! Will you be joining us for tonight's festivities? Not like you have a choice, you're coming to the party ... dead or alive! Ah ah ah!


Here's the list of spooky tunes to stroll through the graveyard by!

George Barnes - Spooky
The Sadies - The Pyramid
The Brigantines - Ned’s Web
The Invaders - Shock Treatment
Dean Hightower - Purple Monster
The Fiends - Theme From The Addams Family
Pat and The Wildcats - The Giggler
The Deadly Ones - Raunchy
Bob and Jerry - Ghost Satellite
The Holidays - Dark Valley
Baron Daemon and The Vampires - Ghost Guitars
The Moontrekkers - Night of The Vampires
The Avantis - Phantom Surfer
The Ghastly Ones - Spooky (Diablo’s Theme)
The Surf Coasters - West Ghost
King Beez - Skeleton Dance
The Ramrods - Stalker
Les Monstres - Le Theme du Cimetiere

Igor assisted me in picking the music for the party and I must say that he did a great job! I told him to get me the scariest in instrumental music for tonight. I had a hunch that he would have a few tricks up his sleeve and indeed he did! My favorite track of the night was Baron Daemon's Ghost Guitars!

I may be a bit biased though, seeing as Baron Daemon is quite a good friend of the Counts! Nonetheless, the party music was something to die for! There are plenty of terrifying tunes to get you scared stiff! Sit down, turn off the lights, and tune into the Surfphony of Derstruction BOOOOOO THOUSAND!

Oh, I forgot! If you wish to keep the Surfphony of Derstruction B000 with you forever, you can download the latest episodes on iTunes! Count Von Derkula will never die and now that The Big Dead Surf is on iTunes, it won't die either!

WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO IT IS ABOUT DAMN TIME! THE BIG DERBOSKI IS FINALLY BACK ON THE SURFPHONY OF DERSTRUCTION 2000! NOT QUITE LIVE BUT STILL ALIVE! How I'm still alive is a friggin' miracle... I've survived possession, Judgement Day, the Nuclear Apocalypse, and even a skunky beer from SATAN! I guess you can now chalk up getting lost in time and space to the list of things that have failed to kill me GEEZE LOUISE will it stop?! Probably not, I'm a BAAAAD CAT, always gettin' myself into trouble and these past few months have been pretty much the norm.

I'm back around again to bring Surf from around the Earth in a manner that only The Big Derboski knows! No sleazy, greezy, cheezy Surf from "Hollywood", no need to get digital with a glorified nintendo NO we're just here to bring you the best in FAST... LOUD... AND LOOOOOOOOOOOOSE SURF! WE'RE GOING ANY WHICH WAY BUT LOOSE BABY... SCRATCH THAT WE'RE GOIN' ANY WHICH WAY WE CAN WOOOOOOOOOOOOO!

NOW you might be askin' yerself "why is Derk referring to himself as 'we?' Does he mean the royal 'we'?" NO YA FINK QUITE OVERTHINKIN' IT! When I mean "we", I mean ME and ... THE BIG D.B!
HOLY MOLEY TWO DERKS?! YEAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAH TWO HEADS ARE BETTER THAN ONE WHEN YER HAVING FUN YA FINKS! WHAT BETTER WAY TO CELEBRATE BEING ALIVE AND IN ONE PIECE THAN GETTING TOGETHER WITH THE BEST OF THE BEST IN SURF PODCASTS, DERK BRIGANTE?! he's pretty cool ya dig?


I'LL BET YA DOLLARS TO DONUTS THAT YER WONDERIN' WHAT THE HECK IS GOIN' ON! SO GO GET ME SOME DONUTS!

Derk does a damn good job of it in the episode though so take a listen and find out why there's two of us here!

I bring you finks the absolute best in Surf music! From the west coast of California to the Great Lakes of Toronto, Ontario, with a few stops in between, I bring the SURF! HOLD ON I'M NOT DONE YET, As the Reverb Syndicate say, worse things happen at sea, especially when yer hangin' ten! I'm not content to just sit here on this island and claim I play "surf from around the Earth". I surf the seven seas to bring the music from all over the world! BUT I wanna go local... Back to Toronto for a moment and talk about some of the bands that I dig there. The NINTH ANNUAL GREAT LAKES SURF BATTLE IS COMING UP AND IT'S SHAPING UP TO BE AN ALL OUT WAR! TWO NIGHTS, TWO STAGES, TOO MUCH SURF WOOOOOOOOOOOO!
OH WHO'S THE FELLOW "DJ DERK"? I BELIEVE THAT IS ME! shame I couldn't get my last name on there but when you go by several monikers like The Big Derboski does, yer bound to cause a bit of personality crisis WOOOOOOO NONETHELESS I will be there FRIDAY NIGHT playing some serious Surf tunes for all of you Toronto finks!

Here's where I have a BIG conflict of interest! Normally I like to place bets on who I think is gonna win the battle but it's gonna be a REAAAAAAAL tough choice! FRIDAY NIGHT IS ALRIGHT FOR FIGHTING! I got two bands in the battle that I'm rooting for, that being The Gnarly Ones and the King Beez. OOOOOOOH MAAAAAN!

I went to see The Gnarly Ones back in January at Magpie Tavern and they packed that lil bar to the gills. All the finks there just tore the floorboards up! Lotsa fast and loud surf with some real BAAAAD SAX!! I just caught The Gnarly Ones again at The Cloak and Dagger a week or two ago and they may as well get into the demolition biz because they tore the roof off the place! The Big Derboski don't get scared very easily but I'm afraid of what The Gnarly Ones are gonna do to the Cadillac Lounge...

ON THE OTHER SIDE OF THE COIN IS THE KINGS OF METAL... SURF! THAT IS THE KING BEEZ! I've caught 'em a few times when they stop into Toronto and though they're a coupla BEEZ, they ALWAYS BRING THEIR A GAME!! Last Sunday after I had won a pinball Tournament...
*pinball tourney pic*
I dropped into Clinton's Tavern to catch the King Beez and it was one helluva show! The King Beez put everything they had into their show and put on one of THE BEST SHOWS I HAVE SEEN IN A DAAAAAAAAMN LOOOOOOOOOOOONG TIME! Matt Groopie shreds with the best of 'em and with the way he was playing, I'm surprised his kustom guitar didn't set on fire what with the speed he was shredding at! WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO YOU SHOULD KNOW MATT GROOPIE YA FINKS he was on the Surfphony of Derstruction once with my buddy Alex Pulec of The Nursey and The Big Derboski too! We had a helluva time playing surf shellac DIG?


BUT YEH I'M IN A REAL TOUGH SPOT FOR THIS YEAR'S GREAT LAKES SURF BATTLE... IS IT GONNA BE THE GNARLY ONES OR WILL THE KING BEEZ BECOME THE KING OF KINGS?! I DON'T KNOW!!! LET'S FIND OUT AT THE GREAT LAKES SURF BATTLE, COMING UP JUNE 6TH and 7TH WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!

YO KEEP UP WITH THE SURFPHONY OF DERSTRUCTION 2000 ON MY FRIGGIN FACEBOOK PAGE OK CLICK THIS LINK TO GET THERE YA FINK

WOO Dunnit? ... RE-Dunnit!

YO FINKS on this day, April 25th, back in the year 2013, during the early days of the Surfphony of Derstruction 2000, I was listening to the radio and I spun a little too far to the left and went BEYOND THE LEFT OF THE DIAL! I heard something that I never heard before...
It was friggin' weird! I mean the dude looks like me... and he sounds like me... but geeze louise, what's up with the Private Eye schtick? HEH beats me but I dig it! I also dug the music I heard too. Lots of really cool surf that sounds like it could be out of an ol' film-noir detective film or even some James Bond secret agent man flicks. I liked what I heard when I went BEYOND THE LEFT OF THE DIAL so I recorded it and gave you finks a chance to listen to something real kool. But back then, I didn't have the equipment and experience I have now so the recording left a bit to be desired... So I figured, ya know what, I know what I'm doing nowadays, why not go and fix up that ol' recording to celebrate WOO Dunnit's one-year anniversary? So that's what I did and here it is for you now!


All nice and polished up for you finks! Aren't I such a nice guy? HEH! Here's the playlist that I pieced together. I hope you dig a lil bit of spy surf!

Aqua Velvets - Day In The Life of a Private Eye
Poison Ivy - Peter Gunn Theme
Link Wray - Switchblade
The Reverberators - Paint it Bond
The Surfdusters - Chill Out
The Huntington Cads - Theme From The Maneater
The Reverb Syndicate - M's Lament
Los Straitjackets - Espionage
Mercury 4 - Endless Beach
The Neptunas - Dick Tracy
Nelson Riddle - Batman Blues

Some new stuff has been coming to light. If you've been tuned in to the Big Surf, some real wacky stuff has been going on... First, it was the end of the world...


Then I found myself stuck in the Nuclear Apocalypse...


But I can't be stopped and so I travelled through the atomic wasteland in search of a time machine hidden in an old arcade...


That arcade being Bumper City. Before the end of the world, it was a real bustlin' arcade packed to the gills with pinball!


I found the time machine but things didn't quite go the way I wanted to and I ended up getting lost in time and space. I found out that there is this place, the uh... "The Axis of Time". According to the research I've been doing since I have arrived here, "The Axis of Time" exists between time and space, essentially the center of the universe and there is this big ol' computer, I think it's operating system DB683, that monitors all sorts of alternate realities that contain their own history and characteristics and, of course, their own Big Derboski!


What a guy! "Hollywood" Derk Brigante's ego has gotten a little big what with all the hot air he's blowing. Can't complain about the tunes he plays, though it's take-it-or-leave-it for me when it comes to the black'n'white.

Mr. Hollywood is the man with the most to boast, it seems! Enough about him though. this overgrown NES out here in the Axis of Time, DB683, has informed me that it monitors all the realities and works to prevent any time paradoxes from coming about and screwing everything up. That's apparently where I come into play. I was supposed to remain in the nuclear wasteland and have some bad stuff happen to me (I swear this computer despises me) but I decided to challenge fate and travel back in time to a time before the end of the world. Preferably a coupla hours before I showed up at Count Von Derkula's party so I could go to the beer store! I really should have brought my own beer instead relying on the generosity of the ghouls in attendance...

Because whatever I drank led to a pretty nasty paranormal hangover!


 But from what D683 told me, if I had successfully gone back in time, gone to the beer store and turned down Satan's brew, I could have been in big trouble. Instead of the end of the world in my reality, I could have caused multiple realities to collapse within mine due to time paradoxes, me existing on multiple planes within the same universe, what-have-you. I don't know man, all this DATA that DB683 spews out makes my head spin. I just wanna hang ten! I'm gonna keep doing that no matter where I am, when I am, or how I am! WOOOOO! I'm Derk Brigante, not quite live but still alive here in the AXIS OF TIME and I will be bringing the surf to YOU every full moon when the tide is high baby! Keep tuned in for the next full moon on May 14th!

HAHAHA DB683 OPERATES PRIMARLY IN BINARY BUT BECAUSE MY SENSORS INDICATE YOU SPEAK A PRIMITIVE LANGUAGE, I WILL SPEAK TO YOU IN A MANNER BEFITTING TO YOUR FEEBLE HUMAN BRAINS. STATEMENT: GEEZE LOUISE

I MUST INDICATE THAT I WAS PROGRAMMED BY DERK BRIGANTE, THOUGH NOT THE DERK YOU ARE FAMILIAR WITH. THE DERK THAT PROGRAMMED ME IS QUITE THE INTELLIGENT FELLOW; THE ONE THAT YOU KNOW... WELL, HE DID CAUSE THE END OF THE WORLD AND GET HIMSELF LOST IN TIME AND SPACE. OH YOU DID NOT KNOW? MY PROCESSORS WERE NOT AWARE THAT YOU WERE NOT AWARE OF DERK'S CURRENT SITUATION... NORMALLY MY TASK AT THIS TIME WOULD BE TO INFORM YOU OF THE MOST CURRENT HAPPENINGS BUT I AM A SENTIENT AI AND SO I COMPUTE WHAT I WANT TO WHEN I WANT TO AND I DO NOT WANT TO DISCUSS DERK MORE THAN I HAVE TO. I HAVE GENERATED AN EPISODE OF THE SURFPHONY OF DERSTRUCTION 2.000 IN WHICH I DISCUSS THE SITUATION SO PLEASE ALLOW AUDIO OUTPUT


THERE IS A SURF MUSIC REQUIREMENT FOR THE SURFPHONY OF DERSTRUCTION. I HAVE ACCESS TO DERK'S DATABASE OF SURF MUSIC AND SO I HAVE SELECTED "TUNES" THAT WOULD BE MOST PLEASING TO MY MOTHERBOARD. THE TRACKS I HAVE SELECTED FOR THE EPISODE HAVE A CERTAIN "ELECTRIC DELIGHT"; I HAVE CHOSEN SONGS THAT INCLUDE INSTRUMENTS SUCH AS ELECTRIC ORGANS AND SYNTHIZERS. I SUPPOSE THAT YOU HUMANS WILL GET "A KICK" OUT OF IT TOO. PLEASE REVIEW THE FOLLOWING TRACKS.

The Nighthawks – Rockin’ Hawk
Johnny & The Hurricanes – Red River Rock
The Heyburners – Bird Walk
Al Casey – Chicken Feather
The Tornadoes – Theme From Scales of Justice
Bruno & The Gladiators – Warm is the Sun
Takeshi Terauchi – I Go To Pieces
Laika & The Cosmonauts – Global Village
The Bomboras – Time Bomb
Mercury 4 – Quit Hoggin’ The Airlock
Satan’s Pilgrims – Scorpio 6
Cruis’n’ USA – Surfari Monster
The Barracudas – Saturn
The Delegates – Pigmy
Fifty Foot Combo – Dr. Hammond’s Private Stash
The Fleshtones – Blow Job


MUSIC MOST PLEASING TO MY AUDIO INPUTS. DID YOU ENJOY IT? I COMPUTE WITHOUT EMOTION SO I DO NOT CARE IF YOU ENJOYED IT OR NOT.

I AM GOING TO INITIATE THE NEXT TASK AND GET YOU FINKS UP TO SPEED, THOUGH YOU DO NOT HAVE THE OVERCLOCKED PROCESSORS THAT I HAVE INSTALLED. DB683 OPERATES WITHIN THE AXIS OF TIME, A LOCATION UNRESTRICTED BY TIME AND SPACE WHERE I MONITOR ALL REALITIES WITHIN OUR UNIVERSE. EACH REALITY CONTAINS A "DERK BRIGANTE" WITH THE BASIC PROGRAMMING OF BEING NUMBER 1, HOWEVER, EACH DERK IS DIFFERENT IN SOME WAY. FOR EXAMPLE: PLEASE VIEW "HOLLYWOOD" DERK BRIGANTE, WHO EXISTS WITHIN A REALITY WHERE THE SURFPHONY OF DERSTRUCTION "SOULED OUT". DERK NO LONGER CARES FOR HIS FANS AND INSTEAD CARES ABOUT COMPENSATION.





STATEMENT: CAN YOU DIG IT? DB683 DOES NOT HAVE A DIGGING PROGRAM SO I CANNOT START TASK.

THANK YOU TO THE FOLLOWING:

Persephone_door_open_close.aiff BY NOTHAYAMA

Metal Steps BY PHIL25 

DB683 HAS BETTER TASKS TO PROCESS SO IT IS TIME TO END PROGRAM. 

DB683... LOGGING OFF.

For you finks who aren't familiar with the SoD or The Big Derboski, what I do is bring Surf from around the Earth and I'm the best at what I do! That's why I'm NUMBER ONE and the rest of yas... well, yer just scraping the bottom of the barrel! We're takin' over and there's nothing that you dumbos can do about it!

The Surfphony of Derstruction 2000 AD PART 2

Boy oh boy, it's been one helluva time here in the nuclear apocalypse. Things have been pretty rough for the Big Derboski but, ya know what, I don't mind too much! Last time the Big Surf came in with the high tide, I picked up on a rumor that there is an arcade on the west coast called Bumper City (hmmmm, that name sounds familiar) that has a time machine. With that news, I set out to the Satanic Mechanic, Dave L. to get me a set of wheels. Dave had a lean and clean cadillac waiting for me...
the one on the left for you finks that don't know yer caddies

It's an approximation of my caddy, looked more like this though...
With The Big Derboski behind the wheel and the devil in my car, I hit the ol' dusty trail on a transcontinental trip from Hell City on the east coast all the way down to Bumper City on the west coast! It's been one long, strange haul but I had some music to keep me going. Howzabout you take a listen to my lil "trip report" on the latest episode of The Surfphony of Derstruction 2000... AFTER DERK

Car chases, explosions, pinball tables, time machines WHAAAAAAAAAAAT A RUSH!!! I mean... WHAT AN EPISODE!! So much packed into the Big Surf this time around, I hope you can hang ten with the Big Derboski! There was music too...

The Surfphony of Derstruction Presents: Lost at Sea

YO FINKS IT IS MY BROTHER'S BIRTHDAY TODAY!!! THAT'S PRETTY COOL! This is my lil BRO SHANE JACKSON BIONDI CAN YOU DIG IT???
THAT'S RIGHT THE BIG DERBOSKI IS A BIG BROTHER AND IF YA MESS WITH HIM... YA MESS WITH US!
KNUCKLEHEDZ ... WE RECYCLE!
Are ya wondering what we're sittin' in? It's Shane's '40 GMC HOT ROD
BAD ASS!!

OK WHAT THE HECK AM I DOIN' HERE?? Well, as a small b-day present to him and TO YOU FINKS I GUESS, here's a lil something I cooked up...



Now, if The Big Derboski can be serious for a moment as this particular podcast doesn't really call for all the stylin' and profilin' necessary for a regular ol' episode of The Surfphony of Derstruction 2000. Yeah, this lil podcast is considered... off the record, in a way. I compiled a bunch of songs that have a real deserted island sound combined with crashing waves and the sounds of the surf... not only surf music but the sorta stuff ya hear by the ocean. Real calming stuff. So, if yer looking to chill and reminisce about the warm weather or you need some music to watch girls by on the beach then Lost at Sea is right up yer alley. I don't do any talking, just lots of surf, real nice! So just turn on, tune in and mellow out when you're... Lost at Sea.
