Back To The Beach: The Surf Playlist

The Dyers.org fake surf album It’s summertime, and all the surfers and hodads are once again sharing that sandy divide between land and sea. No matter which side of the divide you’re on, there’s nothing like some reverb soaked surf-strumentals to make that grey cubicle feel more like a day at the beach.

You won’t find any Beach Boys, Jan & Dean, or beach blanket nonsense here, because if it isn’t instrumental and filtered through a reverb tank, then it really isn’t surf. I know that there are people out there who like the Beach Boys, but if you’re going to call them surf, then you might as well call Jimmy Buffet surf. And call Winger thrash. And maybe wear a tin foil crown and call yourself “Lord Behemoth Roboto”, because if you’re going to live in a giant delusion, you might as well be the undisputed ruler of all that you survey.

Whether you’re into surf or just a hodad looking for something more than the nightly weenie roast, you can unleash the tidal wave of surf instrumental goodness by clicking on the green button below. Ten points goes to anyone who can name all the surf artists listed on my fake Surf! album cover…

Enjoy!

  1. @BonzoGal: You know, I’ve heard of Big Daddy Roth, but not Mr. Gasser and the Weirdos. They didn’t have it on Finetune, so I couldn’t add it. If I only still had a record player…

    @Reese: I do believe that is a secret rule.

    @JAK: What else is new?

  2. Dr. Gasser and the weirdos is a real surf band, it is said the Roth was the lead vocalist, some have there doubts. The band made several albums (Vinyl) all of which adorn Big daddys Rat Fink Art.
    There was CD set withf all their albums (now discontinued) go to ebay and you can see the artwork.
    I have some of there music on a compulation CDs One of there biggest hit was You know it “Finlksville USA” another is “Doin’ the Surfink” Great stuff.
