On “Surfidia”, The Tourmaliners blend the raw instrumental guitar sounds of Dick Dale, Link Wray, and The Ventures mixed with tiki vibrations and spy gyrations… all while watching a cool Spaghetti Western from outer space. Surfidia also features guest musicians Ron Blair of Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers, Eddie Angel of Los Straitjackets and Bob Spalding of the Ventures.
The album is a co-release between Sharawaji Records & Pacific Records. Produced by Miles Clowminzer (Johnny Tarr Quartet, Billy Nation), was recorded over a nine-month period in 2021-22 in San Diego, CA. The principal songwriters and arrangers are The Tourmaliner’s guitarist Deven Berryhill, bass player & guitarist Matt Clowminzer and Miles Clowminzer. The Tourmaliners drummer John MacElwee, guitarist Joe Dameron and keyboardist Ina Soliz perform their respective parts to round out the album. Miles also contributes various guitar, drum, keyboard and sound design elements throughout.
The album cover is taken from a painting by punk rock artist and surfer Brian Bent. During the recording, the band would often derive inspiration from Brian’s painting to help create the album’s sonic landscape.
