The Surf Raiders were one of the big "second wave" surf groups in the 80s. Admittedly, I haven't done my homework on them, but that task just got a lot easier now that their originals are compiled onto this 13 song CD.
I don't plan on making a habit out of this but both of these labels/distros have HUGE sales going on right now that are worth a look.
Double Crown's blurb can do better with this than I can, so I'll quote them directly:
That's no NES game cover, that's a space band. Tsunami Experiment hail from Pennsylvania playing sci-fi surf. I hear a lil' bit of piano on their song Mission to Mars, which is always nice to hear. Right now you can only purchase the album on Bandcamp, but they're accepting preorders on CDs and vinyl for February and March respectively. Head on over to bandcamp if you wanna grab it!
While Brazil has no shortage of great surf groups, if you asked me to name the first that comes to mind, it would probably be the Dead Rocks. They've been around for about 10 years now and put out some great albums, my favorites being International Brazillian Surfs and One Million Dollar Surf Band. They're relentless promoters and have made their music easy to obtain across the world. And most importantly, who can forget those sharp outfits. After a brief Spaghetti Western stint on their last LP, they're back to plain ol' surf and doing it well.
