Ed Hurwitz Gray Inventive guitars, playful lyrics, 3 distinctive vocalists. Plentiful amounts of joy and surprise and a fair few nuggets on this double album. Favorite track: Running Scared.

Barnaby Nutt Hooray for the Surfing Magazines!

I left Leicestershire for rural Ireland a couple of years ago and one of the things that i miss the most is going to Wave Pictures gigs where the band's parents are monopolising the mosh pit.

Delighted to hear that at least 2/3rds of TWP are alive and well and releasing music.

Garage rock supergroup The Surfing Magazines have unveiled their new album Badgers of Wymeswold, out 30th July via Moshi Moshi Records.

Consisting of one half of Slow Club and two thirds of The Wave Pictures, The Surfing Magazines’ primary influences are Bob Dylan, The Velvet Underground and all the great surf guitar music of the 1960s. They burst onto the scene with their eponymous debut album in 2017, a lauded LP described by Record Collector Mag as “a vintage-yet-modern rock’n’roll classic”.

Mixing the noir surf textures of 1960s garage rock along with westcoast sun beaten harmony pop, the 17-track Badgers of Wymeswold follows the acclaimed debut and is to be released July this year. The London based foursome recorded the album at Ranscomb Studio in Rochester in February last year before the start of the first UK lockdown.

Pushing their sound forward, the band utilise their garage rock ethic and have both Drummer Dominic Brider and Rhythm guitar player Charles Watso lead on vocals across multiple tracks. The album sees a return of free form saxophone parts, eerie violins and piano all appear, notably on tracks ‘Nostaw Boogie’ and ‘I’m Going Out Tonight To Play Some Pool’. The title track is drawn from David Tattersall’s nightmare vision about his home town's population of self governing people, the album artwork was also made by Tattersall and depicts a collage of his referenced dreams. The extensive LP showcases their characteristic sound at their brightest, from softer ballads such as ‘Poppies’ and ‘Silver Breasts’, surf guitar rock anthem ‘Locomotive Cheer’, and to the six bar blues ‘Pink Ice Cream’.
