Satan’s Pilgrims: Reviews for “At Home With” LP/CD

without comments

Geremasterde heruitgave van het debuut uit 1994 op eMpTy Records van de Amerikaanse instrumentale band Satan’s Pilgrims die bestond van 1992 tot 2000 en opnieuw bestaat sinds 2009. Na At Home With volgden nog een stuk of acht albums met veel horrorsurf en de groep zou ook psychedelische fuzz gaan maken maar dit debuut was traditionele surf met vlijmscherpe gitaren door een reverb tank gejaagd en drums als mitrailleurvuur: ietsje harder en sneller als in de jaren ’60, maar nog geen garagepunk. Je merkt het ook aan de klassieke covers: Squad Car (het nummer met de politiesirene) en Mr Moto van The Bel-Airs, Movin’ van The Astronauts met dat opzij-opzij-opzij-wij-hebben-ongelofelijke-haast-rifje, en eigenlijk ook de onbekende opener Satan’s Theme, ondanks de titel geen horror maar traditionele surf en verrassend genoeg ondanks die titel reeds daterend van 1961 van een groep genaamd The Rondels. Over Mr Moto gesproken, dat was een reeks van acht detective films uit eind jaren ’30 met acteur Peter Lorre, en laat een van de eigen nummers hier nu Peter Lorre getiteld zijn, het enige nummer met een discreet streepje Vox Jaguar orgel dat een spookachtig effect geeft. Que Honda bevat de uptempo drive van een brommertje (maar geen motorgeluiden), in de rustige melodieuze afsluiter The Lonely Pilgrim in Pulp Fiction stijl slaan de golven stuk op de branding, en de cover van Music To Watch Girls By valt technisch bekeken onder de easy tune. Ik vond dit in 1994 best te pruimen en vind dat nu nog steeds. Nederlandse verdeling via www.clear-spot.nl, de CD is gelimiteerd op 500 stuks en er zijn 150 LP’s geperst op rood vinyl en 350 op ordinair zwart vinyl (GC057LP).

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

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.
