Kill Surf City

Surf music is genre of pop music originating in California in the early 60's as mostly instrumentals to dance to although bands like the beach boys and Jan and Dean added a vocal element to it. It has gone through many revivals over the years and there is a strong surf culture behind the music and a dedicated following still.

Image plays a big part in surf style and trashy visuals like the Ed Roth inspired image above are common. I really dig this retro low culture thing and wish to incorporate in somehow into the American project.

  1. This sounds really interesting! The sub-cultural music vibe seems so suit you. I like how you've chosen something small that not many people will know about.
