Album Notes
PDX A Go-Go... Five bands...
ten songs...that preserve a moment in time, the summer of 2012, when instrumental surf music rode the crest of a wave in Portland, OR. Musicians are forming surf bands, several venues are giving these bands a stage and an audience is growing. Duff's Garage, the club that always gave instro surf a home, is ground zero. There's an excitement about the bands and the music. Many different directions are being explored by these bands, proving that a subgenre thought by many to be one-dimensional is anything but.
The Surf Weasels, WaveSauce, Susan SurfTone, The Outer Space Heaters, and Shade 13 offer you a sample of what's going on here on the northern end of the west coast. We hope you enjoy it and that you come to a few shows. Tell your friends "there's a party going on here in Portland that you should know about"... come and join us.

"If you dig Dick Dale and surf music you will enjoy what Portland, Oregon has to offer.. Wave Sauce, The Surf Weasels, Shade 13, The Outter Space Heaters and the fantastic Susan Surftone... All ten tracks are great."
- Punk Globe - review by Ginger Coyote

"While the main influences here are psychedelia and surf music, it certainly doesn’t end there. Some of the songs are punky. Others have progressive rock leanings. The one thing that holds true throughout, though is that it’s all entertaining. I like this disc a lot."
- Music Street Journal - review by G.W. Hill

"The references on PDX a GoGo are both obvious and subtle. There is a lot of variety among the five bands in approach and presentation, with roots spreading across a wide swath of surf space and time. But each band displays its own individual variation on the style...This is the perfect album for a summertime get-together or impromptu beach party—nothing more to ponder than the next gnarly wave. Cowabunga, dude."
