WOOOOOOOOOOO! Another theme show placed under the BIG BELT BUCKLE of The Surfphony of Derstruction! This week, we hit the pacific ocean hangin' ten and saw what we could get up to in the Far East! It was a bit of a loose theme and I allowed some breathing room to hit up the casbah as well as stop in at the ol' watering hole down in the amazon jungles! Jungle Exotica was the album of choice for this show, having spun many of the tracks from this fantastic compilation. Dig the playlist below...

March 22nd - SOCAN-CAN-CAN

WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO! WOOOOOoooo! WOOOOOOOOOO-HAT A SHOW!! BIIIIIIIIIIIIIIG DRIFT!! THE SURFPHONY OF DERSTRUCTION had to take a 180 when I found out that it would be SOCAN tracking period!! So I says to Mable, I says, "AW TA HELL with Aloha From The Far East for this week! Let's make some Canucks a coupla bucks!" and so I played an entire show of (hopefully) SOCAN-registered artists! DIG THAT MAPLE SYRUP!

March 15th - CALL OF THE WEST

YEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEHAW!!! HEY COWFINKS!! Sheriff Derk Brigante here again for The Surfphony of Derstruction! This episode, we heard THE CALL OF THE WEST and found ourselves out in the Wild West lookin' for somewhere to SURF! The tide decided to meet us halfway and so we had plenty of cacti and seaweed to go around! The specialty of this week's Surfphony of Derstruction was all sorts of Western sounding Surf! Yeehaw! Something unusual about this show was that much of the artists were CANADIAN! HUH?! Kind of unusual seeing as many of the artists are from the Great White North rather than the Wild West! I guess Canadians never forgot the Alamo either!

Canadian artists are in BOLD

the twin tones capello de mariachi
the jesters arab
atomic 7 theme from atomic 7
pj and the galaxies wild goose
urban surf kings muchos diablos
the nevegans russian roulette
the ventures moon child
the surfdusters cattle drive
the s'squires green surf
mutsuhiko izumi bury my shell at wounded knee
the modelos saddle justice
the sin-tones they went thattaway
ghost riders in disguise chili rellino
shadowy men on a shadowy planet they don't call them chihuahuas any more
space cossacks fiesta del cossacapulco!
los straitjackets tijuana boots
danny twang duel
mark brodie & the beaver patrol theme from the old west

I've posted this video a few times but I finally got to play it on The Surfphony so I'm going to post it again... The Twin Tones' Capello De Mariachi

We heard another track from Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles IV: TURTLES IN TIME, This time around I played Bury my Shell at Wounded Knee

Here's an OL' SKOOL video of Shadowy Men on a Shadowy Planet and their track They Don't Call Them Chihuahuas Anymore!

And finally, a little something new, something that I haven't posted on TheSofD Blog... The Modelos with Saddle Justice!

March 8th

WHAT IT IS WHAT IT IS FINKS!! THE BIG SURF IS BACK as we are after every Tuesday!! You can't stop the Surfphony of Derstruction, you can only slow it down! Good thing is that nothing was in our way this week and The Surfphony was at full throttle ALL NIGHT! woooooooo! Great show this week, LOTS of new stuff got some play! I've felt like I've been playing a lot of the same bands lately (not to say the show is going downhill OH NO) so I made an effort to try and play some bands that have had little to no play on The Surfphony!! Dig it!

the sadies the 3-B

Are you wondering what the hell The Sadies are doing in the playlist? HUH?!? It's cool, man! The Sadies produced the soundtrack to Tales of The Rat Fink, a documentary all about BIG DADDY Ed Roth, baby! 26 tracks of some great, wacky, kooky instrumentals! REAAAAL KOOL!

Here's the trailer for Tales of The Rat Fink

... And one of the tracks featured in the film by The Sadies!

Another Canadian Surf band, The Sin-Tones, got a chance for some air-time on The Big Surf! I played their song "Chick Boat" in honour of International Women's Day!

We heard another song from Cruis'n' USA, this time TUBULAR SURF

I snuck in some more video game surf, this time we heard from Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles IV: TURTLES IN TIME with SEWER SURFIN'

MArch 1st

Hello there finks! This week's Surfphony of Derstruction fell again on the first of the month! KOOL! Just the same ol' surfin' time we had this week with a few special songs courtesy of the Cruis'n' USA soundtrack. Originally released in 1994, Cruis'n' USA was all about racing through different U.S. locales with some really sweet music! A couple of Surf tracks, some bluegrass boogie and even a wacky techno track makes Cruis'n' USA one of my favorite game soundtracks. I've posted a couple of videos of the soundtrack below. DIG IT

artist song
cruis'n' USA deadwood ride
the modelos curse of the cowboy
kai winding hero
the goldtones STRIKE!
mr gasser and the weirdos T.J.T.
the blacksheep Baa Baa
the who barbara ann
shadowy men on a shadowy planet 13
the surfdusters el dementia
kenny and the fiends moon shot
atomic 7 the man with the golden card
lightning rods rat rod boogie
the volcanos mount erebus
takeshi terauchi living doll
les jaguars course au bonheur
cruis'n' USA Surfari Monster

Deadwood Ride, the first track played on this episode of the BIG SURF:

Surfari Monster, which closed out the show:

Tune in to The Surfphony of Derstruction next week to hear some more Cruis'n' USA tracks and some more sweet SUUUUUUUURF
