The Ventures and The Atlantics - Great Surf Music from the US and Oz
With all the talk of Hawaii 5-0, a show I have never watched, I was interested in the similarities in style between American and Australian Surf Music. The Atlantics are still playing. I saw them at the Adelaide Guitar Festival a few years ago. It was a cool Election Night in 2007 and they played last after some very indifferent and average acts. They had the whole place rocking. Unbelievable drumming and guitar picking.
I think I prefer the Australian style.
