Eddie Ugata, a vintage guitar collector and one of Japan’s foremost authorities on 1960s surf music, formed the El Caminos in 1994 out of the ashes of his previous band The L.S.D.s, who achieved popularity in the Kansai garage scene. The El Caminos debut album KNOCK’EM OUT was released in 1995 of the next year.

The band’s mission statement: “pursuing the sounds of 1960s surf music without limits” embodies their sound. The El Caminos started to receive attention from surf instrumental enthusiasts, not only in Japan but throughout the world. Their second album, SURFER’S LOUNGE was released in June of 1996 and attracted attention from surf music fans overseas.

The El Caminos released a best album called REVERB EXPLOSION in August of 1997 on the legendary DEL-FI Records, a label that has a very special place in the heart of Eddie. All 15 tracks were personally selected by label founder Bob Keane for a US release. The album stirred up a great response: the track Sumo Wrestler even reached the number one spot on the chart of a college radio station on the West Coast.

The El Caminos experienced several changes in membership over the years and continued their activities at a slow pace. In 2005, the band released their third album BEATRAMA. In 2013, the band played their first show overseas at the Surf Guitar 101 Convention.

The Aqua Barons were formed in January 2010 in Leheo, Corinth, Greece by the two brothers Petros & Philippos Sotiropoulos. Soon the band started gigging covering mostly surf standards. After a long period of inactivity they make their comeback in the Summer of 2013. Their love for traditional surf sound, with guitars drenched with reverb and fuzz, coming from true vintage equipment is their trademark. They appear in the Discography for the first time in the all Greek surf bands compilation “Search for Atlantis” (Green Cookie records 2014) with two tracks. “Surfer Joe festival 2015” in Italy and stage appearances with some of the worlds top surf bands is what follows. Their debut album “Southeast Stompers” will be released in 2016 from Green Cookie Records. The Aqua Barons are: Petros Sotiropoulos (guitar), Antonis Ballis (bass), Ilias Athanasopoulos (drums). www.facebook.com/theaquabarons

Οι The Aqua Barons ιδρύθηκαν τον Ιανουάριο του 2010 από τους αδελφούς Πέτρο και Φίλιππο Σωτηρόπουλο. Η μπάντα με έδρα το Λέχαιο Κορινθίας σύντομα άρχισε τις εμφανίσεις παίζοντας κυρίως surf standards. Μετά από μακρά περίοδο αποχής, κάνουν την επανεμφάνιση τους το 2013. Η αγάπη τους για τον παραδοσιακό surf ήχο, με κιθάρες βουτηγμένες στο reverb και στο fuzz, προερχόμενα όλα από αληθινό vintage εξοπλισμό είναι το σήμα κατατεθέν τους. Εμφανίζονται για πρώτη φορά στη δισκογραφία στη συλλογή με αποκλειστικά ελληνικές surf μπάντες “Search for Atlantis” (Green Cookie records 2014 ) με δύο τραγούδια. Η συνέχεια σηματοδοτείται απο την συμμετοχή τους στο “Surfer Joe festival” το 2015 στην Ιταλία καθώς και από κοινές εμφανίσεις με μερικές από τις πιο σημαντικές surf μπάντες στον κόσμο. Το ντεμπούτο άλμπουμ τους “Southeast Stompers” θα κυκλοφορήσει εντός του 2016 από την Green Cookie records. Οι Aqua Barons είναι: Πέτρος Σωτηρόπουλος (κιθάρα), Αντώνης Μπαλλής (μπάσο), Ηλίας Αθανασόπουλος (τύμπανα). www.facebook.com/theaquabarons
