Hyperblaster Surfcowboys is a trio from Amsterdam that plays music under the motto "Surf is back". And we found out just why that is is on the 25th of April when they played a duo bill with John Paul Keith and the One Four Fives in Q-Bus, Leiden under the name "Hail to the king".
Surf and any other instrumental guitar songs from circa 1960-1962 are from beyond my musical recollection. A song like 'Apache' or 'Walk don't run' would be played every once in a while on the radio, but that must have been about it. Music that was long gone, music that babyboomers could talk nostalgically about, but simply did not move me a lot. That did not change when Quentin Tarantino put some surf into his famous movies nor when a sixty something Dick Dale started recording and touring again because of that. When elements of surf are put into rock and roll, lets take The Paladins as an example, then I start listening some more. But on the whole, neither is something I listen to at home. And to get any misunderstanding out of the way: I am not writing about songs about surfing here. So don't expect this to be on The Beach Boys or Jan & Dean!
