Mark Malibu & The Wasagas - Return Of The Wasagas 2017


 
Back in 1979 Mark Malibu & The Wasagas  washed up onto the Toronto punk and immediately stood out from the pack. Been Canada's first surfpunk was no easy chore but they managed to record a handful tracks,some which appeared on a few compilations.After a 3 year run they packed it in and sadly were quickly forgotten. Funny thing thou,in the early 2000's  Toronto burgeoning surf was starting to gain traction and for a few people  Mark Malibu & The Wasagas became a touchstone band. It took a few more years but in 2014 they appeared at The Great Lakes Surf Battle #9 and released the kool "Original Surf Punk Recordings". As a result you could say the game was back on. Now in 2017 they have dropped the  kool and sweet album " Return Of The Wasagas". This puppy craves in with 12 originals and 2 covers of mighty fine surf. For the most part this is aggressive traditional surf but we also  get a range of surf here ,from traditional to spaghetti to surf punk and a little horror surf .From the opening intro to the final track this is one refreshing and fun ride that maintains a stout groove.Highlights include: "Surfin' A Go-Go" , " Boogie Board ", " Spaghetti Summer" and "Ain't Gunna Crash"
      There is no doubt about it "Return Of The Wasagas" packs a punch. Mark Malibu & The Wasagas are making up for lost time here.This is a lean and hungry outfit that's bringing it on and having fun too boot. Highly Recommended!!

The Scotty Bullock Trio - Love Seeker 2017





Scotty  Bullock(aka Scotty Schober) has been kicking around now for more than a few years.In that time he's been in a few kool bands :The Stampeders,The Sunny Bottom Boys ,The Duetones and The Swing Rays.His latest outfit The Scotty Bullock Trio has been around since late 2014 and it's his most rockin' band yet.The band's debut album " Love Seeker" clocks in with 14  tracks  that make for a pretty kool listen.We get straight up rock n roll to slices of  rockabilly and country that slide into  outlaw territory. But make no mistake here, this is a rock n roll album that happens to be diverse and it's pretty damn good.From one ballad to all out rockers there is a lot to like here.They also throw a little blues and harp action into the proceedings. .Highlights include: "40 Miles To Vegas", "Love Seeker", "49 Mercury Hell","Miss Anna"and  the catchy but kinda chessy   "Hipster"(two versions of the song appear here).
       . 
 The Scotty Bullock Trio are a pretty stout  outfit that aren't afraid to mix it up and do it well.With  "Love Seeker" they have diffidently backed up the buzz about them.Recommended!!
