We are excited to announce the upcoming release of the debut full-length CD by The Surfites, called Big Pounder. The disc is packed solid with great, original surf instrumentals.

The Surfites (
http://www.thesurfites.com) are a gang of landlocked gremmies playing instrumental surf music in the old school style. Formed in 2003 by the two Fjellgren brothers of now defunct Swedish surf band the Daytonas. The Surfites are mainly a studio group with buddies Folke Bergkvist (bass), Henry Karlsson (piano/organ) and Gunnar Lindholm (drums) dropping by for the recording sessions. Klas and Jack Fjellgren play all the guitar parts and write the songs, as well as arranging and producing the recordings. The guys have just completed recording material for a debut album in their basement studio and the finished CD was released on Double Crown Records on March 27th 2007. One of their songs, "Surfville", appears on the upcoming Sazanami Records compilation Wild Sazanami Beat #4. Also, be sure to check out the Surfites on MySpace (http://www.myspace.com/thesurfites). Cowabunga!

The Surfites - Big Pounder CD is now available for order with credit card and Paypal. To order, click on this link THE SURFITES - BIG POUNDER CD

Got my copy of this yesterday and it is fantastic.
Fantastic vintage sound, and killer new tunes.

It certainly made the drive into work more enjoyable this morning.

So get and buy yourself a copy. It's a blast!

Yeah, Miles Thompson does some great art and we were stoked to be able to use
one of his paintings for the cover.

Pablus, I actually stop by every now and then although I don't post much.
