The Surfing Magazines are a garage rock supergroup. The band contains one half of Slow Club and two thirds of The Wave Pictures. Dominic Brider, who has played with many local bands and is an extremely groovy dude, completes the line-up on drums.
The principle influences of the band are Bob Dylan, The Velvet Underground and all the great surf guitar music of the 1960s. The Surfing Magazines intend to rock out and blow your mind, and then to mellow out and soothe your mind, and then to rock out again. Listening to their music is like riding a rock and roll rollercoaster. They are at war with today’s pretentious prog-indie-rock millionaires and bongo pop demigods.
The Surfing Magazines are the real deal. The Surfing Magazines have got soul. They hope that their music will get you to dance.
