After 18 years of playing, Los Venturas have marked their spot in the international scene of instrumental guitar music called ‘surf music’. That label however is too small for what the band brings its crowd: there’s exotica, balkan, ska, soul, rock ‘n roll, … Some have already uniquely labelled it ‘world surf music’. The band itself rather sticks with ‘penetrating guitar instrumentals™’. This unique fusion of styles has been approved by many crowds in Europe and over the Atlantic. Not to be surprised, as their accessible music guarantees good vibes. On top their many years of experience can be heard as a flawless live performance. In short, they know how to throw a party, in diverse settings and different stages, going from clubs to festivals, inland or at the seashore.

Their many years of writing music can be heard on 7 albums/singles that were released from 2001 on: Sharkfest, Aloha Summer, Surfers Brew, Besame Mucho, Kaleydoskop, Paisley Beach & Miles High. The last 3 albums were recorded and produced in Los Angeles by Pete Curry (Los Straitjackets, Jon & The Nightriders) and released under Green Cookie Records. This fall Green Cookie records and Los Venturas proudly present their 4th cooperation: “Playtime!”. Unlike the previous albums, this one is 100% made in Belgium: recorded at Nico Leonard’s Pum Pum Hotel in Charleroi, mixed at Great Oak Studios by Steven Van Gelder and produced by Sam Pieter Janssens.

Playtime! features 11 originals, each of them a world on its own thanks to the use of multiple instruments, techniques and the added value of some top notch guest appearances. It comes in white vinyl and CD. The first 100 LP’s come with an extra 7” featuring two alternative versions, dancefloor-proof! Whether you’re a DJ, collector, music lover or player, don’t hesitate to purchase your copy and… play it!! 

Also available by Green Cookie records : Kaleydoskop (LP) (edition of 500 copies on BLACK vinyl) – Paisley Beach (10″) (edition of 300 copies on GOLDEN vinyl) – Miles High (CD & LP edition of 500 copies on COLOURED vinyl)

Biography

The Barduliansis a quartet of instrumental jazz, funk, soul and rythm & blues that wasformed at the beginning of 2012 in Bilbao, Spain. Theirmusicians come from the most representative bands of the current “black scene” inEuskadi, such as The Cherry Boppers, Akatz, Priscilla Band, Potato.

The Bardulians es un cuarteto de jazz, funk, soul y rythm&blues instrumental que se forma a principios de 2012 en Bilbao. Sus músicos proceden de las bandas más representativas de la escena negra actual en Euskadi, como The Cherry Boppers, Akatz, Priscilla Band, Potato.

Con su cadencia barduliana, The Bardulians consiguen hacer entrar en movimiento a todo aquel que este dispuesto a degustar su sonido, también al que no. La cadencia barduliana, sinónimo de ritmo y fiesta, esta impulsada por una potente sección rítmica que corre a cargo de Lando Stone (bajo) y Xavier Urrutikoetxea (batería). El magnetismo que fluye en el bardulianismo lo transmite el hammond de Joseba Negro. La dulzura corre a cargo del saxo de Iskander Vesga.

The Bardulians busca la inspiración en los años 60 y principios de los 70, cuando la grabación analógica se encargaba de mostrar el sonido de la época dorada del Soul. El ritmo barduliano consigue retrotraer hasta tiempos añejos, donde las atmósferas eran suaves y el ritmo latino servía como ofrenda al baile y la diversión.

Sus músicos nos acercan a nuestra época clásicos de grandes artistas como Lou Donaldson, Ottis Redding, Horace Silver, Aretha Franklin, Gil Scott-Heron, Billy Preston y también pequeños tributos a bandas como Sly & The Family Stone, The Meters e incluso las archiconocidas The Beatles o The Rollin´Stones.

¡Un sonido moderno para la joven Euskal Herria!

Satan’s Pilgrims “At Home With …” LP/CD – OUT 1 September 2018

without comments

CD edition of 500 copies

LP RED limited edition of 150 copies

LP BLACK limited editio of 350 copies

GC057-Satans-Pilgrims-one-sheet.pdf

Green Cookie Records and Satan’s Pilgrims are happy to announce the reissue of “At Home With Satan’s Pilgrims“, the very first full length Pilgrims album originally released in 1994 on eMpTy Records. This album has been long out of print and will now be available again on LP and CD, remastered and with a short run of red colored vinyl copies available!
Even on their first album, the Pilgrims came out of the gate with some of their best loved original songs, such as “Surf Lyre”, “¿Que Honda?”, and “Petty 43”.
The cover songs they chose show their allegiances. Rather than going for the Dick Dale style that was about to reintroduce the world to surf music via “Pulp Fiction” (which was released into theaters not long after the release of “At Home With Satan’s Pilgrims”), the Pilgrims chose a more band oriented style as they covered The Bel-Airs, Eddie & The Showmen, The Rondels/The Challengers, and having three guitars, The Astronauts…natch!
Now here we are in 2018, looking back on the 1990s surf the same way Satan’s Pilgrims and the other 90s bands were looking back to the original 1960s surf for inspiration. Whether you were there in the 60s, 90s, or are just discovering surf, we hope you will enjoy this piece of surf music history.

Los Javelin “Cocktail Caracas” CD – OUT 10 April 2018

OUT 10 April 2018

GRAB YOUR COPY ★ CD: € 12.00 (shipping + digital download included) ★ digital album: € 8.00 ★

With more than 15 years in national and international scenes, inspired by the music of The Shadows, Henry Mancini, Ennio Morricone, Dick Dale & His Del-Tones and Esquivel, born in 2001 in Caracas, Los Javelin are the Venezuelan expression of surfabilly & roll. Barracuda on bass, Poison-Veneno on drums and Dr. Staccato on the surf guitar make up this trio considered representatives of the surf music in Venezuela.

Cocktail Caracas is exactly what the title saying. A mix of exotica, lounge, surf, ska, Latin American and Caribbean sounds directly from Santiago de León de Caracas, the capital of Venezuela. Los Javelin was born in 2001 and this is their second release. 8 amazing tracks produced and recording by Grammy winner Daniel Espinoza and Yein Gonzalez, have a unique feeling. This album is the rebirth of exotica sounds of Juan Garcia Esquivel, the twang sounds of The Shadows, the passion of Dick Dale & His Del-Tones, the complete movie sound of Henry Mancini and Ennio Morricone, under the Venezuelan sun.

1. La Maraquita: A fully exotic danceable track. One of the gentlest sounds that you have to dance it with your love in a room full of red curtains with black spots.
2. Punkabilly Surfer: The perfect soundtrack for the missing and unknown spy 6t’s movie that someone will discover on Ralph Thomas old desk.
3. El Toro: That’s what happening when you are mixing Asian music roots with Mexican trumpets and a Spanish flavor. Please watch out, El Toro will blow your mind.
4. Luna de Margarita: A classic Space theme. You can see the aliens dancing together with monsters on the grand ballroom
5. Camino a Tijuana: This is the perfect track to fell in love and dance under the moon of Tijuana. Are you still waiting to ask her for a dance?
6. Achtung Lab: This track comes naturally from the Cabinet of Dr. Caligari. “How long will I live?”, “Until dawn.”
7. Ska Surf: Have you ever listened the perfect mix of ska and surf music?
8. Caramelo e Chocolate: This is by far my favorite track. This is what this record is about. This is the taste that you must have after listening COCTAIL CARACAS.
