“Eagerly await a 3rd Album by Bishop Rookerly This second offering from NY based surfsters does not disappoint. With a healthy dose of both shredders and laid back tracks, plus the occasional and requisite surf classic cover, Monsters from the Id is another great modern addition to the surf genre from this great band. I eagerly await a 3rd album from these talented musicians. Album Highlights: The band anthem "Coffin Dagger" tears the album wide open, while the chuggy title track "Monsters from the Id" changes the gears a bit. "Parasite" brings the tempo back up again, and the haunting reverb of "Smoke" leaves you feeling more than a bit creeped out. Also, their wonderful renditions of "A Shot in the Dark" and the oft covered "Caravan" are both great cuts. That is not to discount the other 8 tracks, all of which are good. Keep it the good work gang.”

    King of the Surf Guitar Dick Dale rides a wave back to Sellersville this summer. He invented surf music in the 1950s, developed the Fender Tank Reverb and Guitar Player Magazine called him "Father Of Heavy Metal." Dick is also a multi-instrumentalist and you never know what he’ll play during his massively entertaining concert! His music is heard in dozens of television commercials and shows (Friends, Star Trek Voyager), movies (“Miserlou" on Quentin Tarantino's Blockbuster Pulp Fiction) and even the Super Bowl. Dick Dale's TV appearances span Sullivan to Letterman and MTV to PBS. The Surf Party kicks off with The Coffin Daggers, who 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, founded the group in 1999 and his punk influences give the The Coffin Daggers a unique melodic sensibility. "No one comes close to The Coffin Daggers when it comes to all-out intensity…they will stomp a mud hole into your fragile minds." - Chart Magazine "[Vik's] moves proceedings beyond mere era emulation by unleashing a rude and vicious riff that would have made Link Wray smile." - Guitar Player
