Item Detail:

The Metalunas - Interstellar Surf Party CD (Surf Cookie) 

This great Canadian surf/instro combo led by guitarist Mark Brodie had a brief, but stellar run in the early 2000’s with three well-received albums, and then they disappeared. Brodie has continued playing over the years, but it’s great to see the release of this 14 song disc containing unreleased material. It’s packaged in a vibrant package with cover art depicting a group of aliens and earthlings dancing on a beach located on some other planet. The disc combines originals as well as a few covers, such as “Paradise Cove”, “High Wall” and “The Lonely Surfer” among others. While the songs don’t break much ground, it’s always a joy to listen to well-done, expertly performed songs firmly rooted in the early 60’s surf sound. The albums previously released were all solid, and this is a nice addition to the Metalunas legacy.

Tracks: Space Age Tomorrow - Monkey Knife Fight - Stone Age Stomp - Wolf Pack - Tarzan - Paradise Cove - High Wall - Mad Doctor - Groovy Guru - Jump The Shark - Bikini Party - The Lonely Surfer - Do The Scratch n' Sniff - Gidget Must Die


The Lost Metalunas EP! (10:42)
A straaaaaaange story for you! Back in 2003 the Metalunas were contacted by a guy in Texas who was planning to start a record label called K.R.E.E.PY. Records, and he wanted us to do an EP for him, as well as some tracks for other upcoming compilation releases. We recorded four songs heard here (Bikini Party, The Lonely Surfer, Do the Scratch N Sniff, and Gidget Must Die) for the planned release called "Interstellar Surf Party". The artwork was done and everything was ready to go. And then...the owner of K.R.E.E.P.Y Records literally vanished off the face of the earth! He stopped responding to emails and wouldn't pick up his phone or return any messages. We were left with our four songs and no explanation as to the record's cancellation or the disappearance of our record label exec. We started to wonder if maybe he'd died or something. More likely, he ran out of money. I discovered through some research online that he'd also commissioned a bunch of promotional items for his label, including some tiki mugs designed by a well-known artist from Mexico--the same artist who'd designed the EP artwork. Anyway, I was digging through my CD collection the other day and came across the songs, which I previously thought I had lost. I figured: waste not, want not, and decided to post them on youtube.
