What Is Instrumental Surf Anyway?

Instrumental surf rock music was made popular in the early 1960s by bands like Dick Dale & His Del-Tones, The Surfaris, The Ventures, The Lively Ones, The Tornadoes, and The Chantays. Commonly associated with surfing in southern California, surf rock is famous for guitar techniques that emulate the sound and feel of waves. You may recognize songs like “Wipe Out,” Miserlou,” “Pipeline,” and “Walk, Don’t Run,” which all charted well. Surf rock also made its way into the theme songs of popular shows, including James Bond, The Munsters, Hawaii 5-0, and Batman. The death of surf rock is widely blamed on the “British Invasion” or the arrival of The Beatles in 1964. Surf rock made an appearance in the ‘80s with surf punk and again in the ‘90s thanks to the “Pulp Fiction” soundtrack. Now Anything But Surf is bringing it back again–with surf rock covers of the classics to modern hits.
