They're latest album is called "Highwave to Hell" and they are one of the standout bands on the recent "Brave New Surf" compilation. Check out their moody new video "Kodachrome Wipeout" at http://vimeo.com/42921707
>
> LOS VENTURAS from Belgium, shocked the audience at the 2012 Surfer Joe Festival in Italy with their updated, soulful sound. Dressed like 70's swingers and rockin' the wah-wah on many songs, the grooves inspiring the crowd to sway like lithium was in the air. Los Venturas new album, "Kaleydoskop" will be available for this, their second, US tour. Check out their live version of Tommy James' "Dizzy" http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iGo4dsGwayg

just realized that you can hear almost everything by El Ray here:
http://elray.dk/press/music.html

Lots of Spy type songs,
I know that Otto wanted them for Tiki Oasis,
but they couldn't stay for 2 weeks plus
;-(

But at least Nor. Cal. and So. Cal. can see them before Oasis.
at F.I.
and the SG101 con.

a good review towards the bottom of page 1, here:
http://surfguitar101.com/forums/topic/19006/?page=1

and then pics on page 2 of that thread.

Thanks to Ferenc of Frankie and the Pool Boys for arranging it,
and to Mike for letting it happen there.

Good times indeed.
