Pushing out the boundaries of surf and hot rod music for Singles Going Steady 2019. Booming Fender guitar drop-ins and slow tremolo nocturnes, Lecuona romanticism and castaway exoticism, outer galaxies with psychedelic overlap, high desert atmospherics and Beach Boys-wannabes, and various oddball themes and adjacent preoccupations. All 45s, all fun. Tally ho, flamers!

I'm ready for any thing! I've got my 9'6" Rick if it's mush, AND a 4'10' swallow tail if it's strong right and lefts.

Tipping their hat to Jack The Ripper, no?

Little Danny:

Of course you do Franco.

I'm mad jealous of anyone who actually knows how to surf, also.
Avatar 11:18pm

Danny, me too, but it's great to watch and this music makes me so damn happy.
Avatar 11:19pm

Hard to surf in Marfa. :)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:20pm
Franco Twinkie:

Danny, I can't surf! I can hardly get out of a chair without falling down.
Avatar 11:20pm

Hello, todos!
Avatar 11:22pm

Franco, but in our minds it's endless summer.
If we want.

Hello geez! This is joyful in a beautiful mournful way

The wet sound of a Fender Dual Showman with outboard reverb tank....I can't play the guitar either! But I can dream, can't I?
Avatar 11:23pm

Chresti, great description!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:24pm

Franco, you got wheels on that?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:24pm

but you rule on the ironing board Franco!

That photo is pre-nuclear generator San Onofre. In my experience, a drive down 5 from LA to San Diego entailed passing the "twin titties" that languish there to this day.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:25pm

Late arrival, hi!
Avatar 11:26pm

Dean, I think people still surf there.

Probably warmer.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:27pm
Franco Twinkie:

We use to sleep on San Onofre until the rangers kicked us off the beach.

Avatar 11:28pm

Franco, ha! High school memories.

The epithet, by the way, is not mine. A friend of mine from high school with whom I drove down to SD one day, a young lady who would be crowned Homecoming Queen a year or so later, made the remark as we passed the then recently developed landmark.

Chresti and I went to this Christmas party in Pasadena and Del Casher was the featured entertainment for the evening. I've never seen and electric guitar that had more buttons, knobs and switches.

Hard to do much surfing in North Jersey (my excuse...I'd be hangin 10 otherwise)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:33pm
Franco Twinkie:

The surf is awesome in Altadena.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:34pm

i know someone who surfs off the west end of long island, i think on the south shore. she says the waves are often quite big enough for surfing.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:34pm

(so - very close to northern new jersey)
Avatar 11:34pm

Dean, very funny in the darkest possible way. Everyone thinks of them like that.

Hiya, Doc! Coel!
Avatar 11:39pm

Slinky surf!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:39pm

Hey Geez!

Never saw The Romans, Franco, but I've seen lots friends and countrymen.

I was only remarking upon the marvelous juxtaposition of the queen-to-be's precise description and the fact that I was the audience to it. She was one of my high school bands, due to our friendship. She was in no way "like that," trust me.
Avatar 11:44pm

Man, what great records.
Avatar 11:46pm
Little Danny:

Thanks geez!

It just occurred to me that the only record any of my bands has ever released is described on discogs as "surf": https://www.discogs.com/M-Espionage-Baby/master/1138145

Johnny And The Hurricanes also did Sand Storm. On the Warwick label, I do believe.
