On The Beach (CD)

Catalog Ref: GC103

Thanks to Green Cookie Records, a whole new generation will have access to two of the most important Surf music releases of the early 80s!
At a time when New Wave, Heavy Metal and Pop music dominated, The Surf Raiders did the Surfer’s Stomp to the beat of their own drums and were one of only a handful of bands carrying the torch of traditional Surf music.
Bob Dalley is not only a living legend for writing one of the essential publications on First Wave Surf music, Surfin’ Guitars: Instrumental Surf Bands Of The Sixties, but also for putting his knowledge to practical use and leading one of the premiere traditional Surf bands of the early 80s.
Raiders Of The Lost Surf and Surf Bound helped establish The Surf Raiders as one of the few prime examples of traditional Surf music in the early 80s. They are absolutely essential for any true Surf fan.

On The Beach is the Surf Raiders third album originally released in 1984 on the Surf Wax Record label. 1983 was a year of change for the Surf Raiders. Neal Kuzee left the group for other interests. Tom Moncrieff, formerly of the Malibooz, stepped in on the rhythm. 1983 was a busy year, as the Raiders burst into the LA club scene, playing at LA Street Scene, 321 Club, Music Machine and Zaca Greek Restaurant.
