I have a complex appreciation for the raw sounds of surfy garage-punk. By its very nature, it’s music that invokes hostile feelings of rebellion and angst. This is the result of a unique, salt-water style that is made up of primitive guitar riffs that define its rambunctious sound. It’s a familiar style of rebellion best suited for the wilds of the ocean waves. One could say that it all started with The Ventures or Dick Dale or even The Safaris. Years after these pioneers laid down this foundation came the birth of punk. This new philosophy reenergized this style with a dangerous attitude and subsequently, we get bands like Guantanamo Baywatch, The Phantom Surfers, or in this case, The Terrorsurfs.
