Studio Surf Styles Vol. 1 Hodads Hang 10!

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Sharawaji Records is proud to announce the release of the debut album from The Syndicate of Surf. 

Studio Surf Styles Vol. 1 Hodads Hang 10! explores the rich sonic landscape of the mid 1960s, as the sun sets on the surf music craze and considers how surf music would have developed if the British Invasion had not so much wiped out surf music, but melded with it in a glorious tidal wave of Silvertone powered rock n roll.

You will hear tracks originally recorded by The Stooges, The Dictators, The Ramones, Bob Lind, The Seeds, The Sex Pistols and Swing West in addition to four original compositions by Da Vinci Flinglestein.

The debut recording, has been professionally mixed and mastered by Gary Hobish at Armin Hammer Productions for release by Sharawaji Records as a digital download in addition to a full retail release as a Limited Edition Digipack CD.

The debut recording, Studio Surf Styles Vol 1: Hodads Hang Ten! is being professionally mixed and mastered for release as a digital download in addition to a full retail release as a Limited Edition Digipack CD.

Hodads Hang Ten! answers the question of how surf music would have developed if the British Invasion had not so much wiped out surf music in the late 1960s, but melded with it in a glorious tidal wave of Silvertone powered rock n roll.  

 

The Stryd join the Sharawaji Records roster

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

The Stryd was formed through a shared visceral love for rock'n'roll that would take them back to the roots of their musical passion: heavy, fast but melodic songs, composed with the accuracy of the Beatles and played with the urgency of the Ramones.

Their music is a synthesis of their energy, their musical skills and their mutual affection and understanding, delivered in the pure and direct language of punk, garage, surf and rock'n'roll. 

The Stryd's debut release, featuring 12 original tracks of punk power-pop that reflect the twistedness of our times at supersonic speed, will be released by Sharawaji Records as a Limited Edition Digipack CD, available for pre-order on Tuesday 6th October 2015.  Digital downloads will be available from www.sharawaji.com from December 2015.

Tsunamibots to release new album with Sharawaji Records

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Attention Humans! In a giant step for Robot/human relations, Sharawaji Records is proud to announce that The Tsunamibots have joined the Sharawaji roster, forging an alliance to crush puny humans and enslave the human race.

The Tsunamibots said:

"after self releasing our two EP'S Rise of the Robots and Surfing Craze in the Robotic Age, we found our day to day obligations of crushing humans and polishing our transistors was suffering. Sharawaji Records is like a well oiled machine. They will be great servants...correction...partners in our quest for world domination."

"It feels like a logical approach to have a musical partnership with Sharawaji Records" says Tsunamibots guitarist Tomadore64. "Partnering with them is the natural next step for enslaving all humans."

Drummer The Master Circuit agrees "we don't like many humans, but the guys from Sharawaji will be spared from the crushing."

"..... besides our new label mates The Zillatones are shape shifting aliens from outer space. They will be great allies in operation enslave all humans."

Bassist The Main Frame concurs "0100000111...beep."

tsunamibots

We've long been fans of the Tsunamibots, both for the music - a fusion of the Cylons from Battlestar Galactica meets DEVO, Misfits, Servotron and Man or Astroman?, and also the electrifying live act that has brought the surf punk trio to prominence on the North East American surf and scene. 

The live performances at Unsteady Freddie's Surf Rock Shindig (Otto's Shrunken Head) demonstrate the high degree of interaction with fans that extends online through their Twitter and facebook pages.  If you haven't already, follow your maniacal metal overlords now and you may be spared from crushing.

You can buy the first two EPs and find out more about Tsunamibots on their page, and buy merchandise directly from www.tsunamibots.com.
