Aussie Surf Band

Biography

Rockhampton 1986. Two boys ended up playing tennis for school sport. All the cool sports were taken. So, while sitting against the chain wire fence, Martin Kemp spotted a daggy brown vinyl guitar case leaning against the fence beside Will Marshall. "Can you play that?....

Marshall and the Martins, and a new sport known as band practice, were formed. Bobby Martin on rhythm and Peter Sinclair on bass rounded out this instro-combo, and the sounds of Wipeout, Pipeline, Batman, Apache and Flingel Bunt could be heard across the school grounds, and local shopping mall for years to come. The Beatles' tunes featured too, but when you get told enough times that you can't sing, instrumental surf music takes over....

The daggy brown vinyl guitar cased contained a modest Toledo brand acoustic guitar. This wouldn't do. So, while we waited for Santa to bring an electric guitar, The Purple Thing, hand crafted by the school principal Jules Maher, was loaned to the band along with a handy sized Peavey 1x12 amp.

Now, thanks to technology, we are able to bring you our own brand of original surf instrumental tunes.
