SURF ROCK INSTRUMENTAL MUSIC PLAYLISTS
THE STORY OF SURF ROCK MUSIC
Surf Music or Surf Rock, is a mostly instrumental variation of Rock 'n' Roll - born in the late 1950s. Among the pioneers are bands and musicians such as Link Wray, Duane Eddy and Champs, who added a lot of reverb and tremolo effects to their music - often influenced by the sound of Fender amplifiers and guitars.
In the early 1960s, the first wave of the classic surf sound emerged in California (USA). Some of the most famous bands and musicians of that time are Dick Dale & the Del-Tones, Surfaris, The Chantays, The Marketts, The Pyramids, Tornados, Sentinals, The Ventures, The Shadows and Centurians. The representatives of vocal surf music are Jan & Dean, The Trashmen and of course The Beach Boys.
In the 1990s instrumental surf rock made a comeback with the film Pulp Fiction. Dick Dale's hit Misirlou was the main reason for this. Among the most famous bands and musicians of modern surf music are Los Straightjackets, Messer Chups, Man or Astro-man?, The Bambi Molesters, Surfer Joe, The Space Coassacks and Satan's Pilgrims.
