Ten years ago I discovered many instro bands on a site entitled simply 'mp3.com' where bands would offer free CD tracks for promotion.
Unfortunately, the site, most of the bands, and their CD's are no longer around.
This is my tribute to a band called The Deoras. (To make this track sound authentic I took a few seconds of their drum intro, added my own, spliced it, diced it, sauteed it, and looped it, just to give you a small sample of how great this band was)

What a great, good time track... This sounds like it should have been in Pulp Fiction, or being played by Hank Marvin on some obscure solo project...

Absolute delight to listen to, great performances, great mix...

I love how you are the font of knowledge when it comes to these surf/instrumental songs. It's absolutely wonderful, as is the rendition here. That guitar tone is just resplendent and the playing just sparkles with authenticity!
Still your big fan Dave!

I don't know much about surf music. But this sounds very stylistic pure to me, perhaps with the exception of the spoken introduction. The drumming is great!! yes! Very good guitar sound and playing, Nop Notch. A perfect track!
I dont remember the Deaoras from mp3.com either. But I remember a surf band called tsunamis, is that you?. I also remember a the band 'Get Wet' from mp3.com with Les Fredkin.

Was that a Hammer Horror intro? Could have sworn that I just saw this band's name on a billboard on Interstate 78 in Pennsylvania. I've been crying into my beer glass for many months about how I miss the old days - this seems to have brought a smile back.

Besides this song being totally awesome and surf-tastic,
I used to be a Gold/Premium user of Mp3.com and had a plethora of free music on it and I really miss the site. Boo to whoever took it over.

Fabulous retro rock sound on this one. I never heard of the Deoras, but if their music was even half as good as this, I can see why you considered them to be so awesome. Thumbs way, WAY up!

Oh, yeah. This stuff is irresistible and beautifully done. Aside from being great on its own, I can really see it being useful in various video/film productions. Very cool, and brightens the day for anyone who hears it.

Your guitar sounds clear as a bell and your production has never been better. You're still in the foamy, blue tube of infinite surf clarity, DS, you just have never sounded better. So what happened to the Tsunamis? Did you all decide to meet in the same room, and it was like a Kirk-meets-anti-Kirk cosmological explosion? Well, here's a tip of the fedora to the Deoras for that great composition, wherever they are.

Here's my personal favorite "where are they now" band... a reunion story from 1999... they seem to have vanished in the undertow, though: http://www.rockabilly.net/articles/spies.shtml

Loved this, the old 50's reverb & echo.

Anyone remember Hank Marvin & the Shadows?

Beautiful tone, absolutely right on! I know a magician(or musician)isn't supposed to reveal his secrets, but I'm really trying to nail that surf tone with my guitar as well, ala the Ventures/Shadows/etc., and was wondering if you might give me a few pointers on how to get that rich surf tone. Again great work, keep it up, and lemme know what you think of my amateur attempt at Apache.
