Surfer Blood Guitarist Thomas Fekete Begins Pledge Campaign To Cover Medical Costs

Surfer Blood guitarist Thomas Fekete has started a pledge campaign in order to cover medical costs.

Several months ago, Fekete had major surgery to remove a tumour from his abdomen. Unfortunately, doctors informed him a few days ago that the cancer had spread to his spine and was making its way to his lungs. As his wife has left work to help with his treatment and insurance will only cover a portion of the costs, Fekete has set up a GoFundMe page. You can donate here.

Amazing ARP 2600 clone and a very cool song by Firechild

ARP 2600

I had to share this impressive vid. Not only is this an amazing clone of the classic ARP 2600, the song and video made by Firechild are really awesome. I’ll definitely be checking out more of his music!

Early Damon Che, Thee Speaking Canaries recordings released!

He’s probably one of the hugest drumming influences on me of all time, but Damon Che of Don Caballero had another band where he played guitar and sang for called Thee Speaking Canaries. Before the band totally took shape as a trio, Damon recorded many songs with himself on all the instruments. Chunklett Industries recently released all this material for the first time.

These are basically a bunch of cool instrumental versions of early SC songs with Damon on all the instruments. I just got it and have to say I really dig it. There’s a totally cool nostalgic 90s guitar vibe going excellently accompanied by Mr. Che’s signature drumming. Highly recommended for all of those that love Don Cab, Bitch Magnet, or 90s post rock/math instrumental stuff.

The digital version is only $8, go buy it!
