GUITAR LEGEND DICK DALE
GUITAR LEGEND DICK DALE
Dick Dale invented surf music in the 1950's. Not the '60's as is commonly believed. He was given the title "King of the Surf Guitar" by his fellow surfers with whom he surfed with from sun-up to sun-down. He met Leo Fender the guitar and amplifier Guru and Leo asked Dale to play his newly creation, the Fender Stratocaster Electric Guitar. The minute Dale picked up the guitar, Leo Fender broke into uncontrolled laughter and disbelief, he was watching Dale play a right handed guitar upside down and backwards, Dale was playing a right handed guitar left handed and changing the chords in his head then transposing the chords to his hands to create a sound never heard before.
Coffin Daggers
Coffin Daggers
The Coffin Daggers, an instrumental surf punk band from New York, delivers an all out attack on the senses. Comprised of Viktor Venom on guitarThe Coffin Daggers deliver an all out attack on the senses drawing from diverse influences, ranging from Dick Dale, Henry Mancini, Link Wray, and the Cramps. Viktor Venom, one of the founders of Nausea, started the group early in 1999. Vik's punk influences (he has also worked with Reagan Youth and Chaos UK) give the band's music a unique melodic sensibility. Guitar Player observed that he "moves proceedings beyond mere era emulation by unleashing a rude and vicious riff that would have made Link Wray smile" Their performances have floored both European and American audiences from start to finish, prompting Chart magazine to declare "no one comes close to The Coffin Daggers when it comes to all-out intensity...they will stomp a mudhole into your fragile minds." The Coffin Daggers are currently promoting their latest LP release, Aggravatin' Rhythms, out now on Cleopatra Records.
