ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
I play, sing and record all of the instruments myself in my home digital recording studio. I have been playing the guitar for 25 years, the bass guitar for 5 years, and keyboards for 5 years. I sang in the church choir in England when I was a boy, then left when my voice (and a couple of other things) dropped! Though I record entirely digitally, I do not use computers in music. If I am not happy with a part of a song, I have to play it again--no cut and paste. I prefer this way of playing, as I feel it is more realistic and has a 'human', live feel. I only use microphones for my vocals, for everything else I plug straight into the digital 8-track recorder. After this, I set the sound levels, and send directly to the masterdisc recorder where I can do more changes such as treble, bass, fade-in, fade-out, compressing, peak-limiting and so on.
I spend a lot of time trying to write lyrics that are interesting, some with rather strange subject matter. I don't write love songs because I believe that subject has been done to death.
I also do all of the photography and artwork. I have been a full-time professional photographer for the past 20 years or so. I travelled the world for 5 years as a cruiseship photographer. Now I work and live in New York.
Surfing Guitarist: General Info

Band Website cdbaby.com/surfingguitarist
Band Members Myself on guitars, bass, synths, vocals & various drum machines. I do not use computer software at all... Recorded digitally on 8-track. Tone, rhythm & melody, using as few notes as possible These are some of the key elements that I strive for. Like soundtracks to movies--sometimes only a couple of notes are needed to evoke a feeling. That's my excuse anyway.....Played guitar for decades...I played the horendous working men's club circuit in Liverpool and Manchester, England many moons ago. I was in bands that played only cover versions of The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, The Who etc, etc. If we tried to play anything of our own, we would get bottles, cigarettes, meat pies (no panties though), thrown at us. It was purgatory, all in the past. Now I just play my own tunes, The Good, The Bad, and the Friggin' Ugly! So there it is........You can get my stuff in on- cdbaby.com, iTunes, Soundclick, Rhapsody and dozens of indie Web music sites for a mere pittance-I need a little bread, maaan to pay for my equipment. Screw corporate bullshiting suits! Thanks for you intergalactic support! Some bizarre facts from the distant past...I actually played in a club band called 'T.O.T.' (acronym for for 'Tits On That'),in England in the seventies. We played working men's clubs in Liverpool and Manchester. If we did not do several cover songs of The Beatles and The Who, we would get thing thrown at us. One club was so run down, the ceiling was leaking whilst we were playing. Water went right on to my brand new Marshall amp (which took me years to pay for)--it blew up,and fused everything.
Influences Many, many unsigned experimental heros. Also---Wishbone Ash, The Shadows, Pink Floyd, Gary Numan, Aqua Velvets, Iron Maiden, Hawkwind, Tangerine Dream, The Atlantics, Slacktone, The Surf Kings, Ian Brown, Dick Dale, The Ventures.
Sounds Like Some of the above and sooo much more (or less). Sounds like--An aural extravaganza of bizarre sounds rushing through my brain, the by-product of decades of listening (voluntarily and involuntarily) to a plethora of strange sounds, on this planet and several others. Some of my tracks sound like ice-cold beer being squirted into your ears at a controlled pressure, so as not to perforate your ear drums. Other tracks sound like Floridian manatees being hit by speed boats navigated by totally drunken pricks at the helm. Most of my other tracks--I have no explanation for them---you judge--this is not 'American Fookin' Idol! maaaan.

Milly

Light and dark
A bizarre mixture of vocal and instrumental tracks dealing with three majot topics...Money, matreialism, space aliens and alcoholism. With space-age surf electronic instrumentals thrown in. Quite an unforgettable and original accomplishment.

Indie guy

Stuart Ward-Different and original.
There are 3 or so purely instrumental tracks and the rest are vocal with lots of neat instrumentation. Surfing Guitarsist is a true one-man artist. I was looking for something different and found it it, along with his previous CD. Anyone who can sing songs about first-hand experience with beating aloholism -Alcohol and cemetery-and Sea of alcohol, has to get 5 stars. Very interesting album. Extremely different from his first CD which is all instrumental with mainly surf/psych flavor. You can still tell his style though. I believe his next release will deal with the dark side of New York City.

Surfer chickeroo babe

Headphones on the beach watching the waves
Bizzare mixture of wonderful, strange tunes. Guitars, keyboards, synths, drum machines and god know what else. Very creative and so solo. Love this genre 'cos it is so creative and original. Artist does his own thing and it is clear he don't care 'bout pleasing radio ass-kissers. Plays and records for himself, and for his growing legion of strange (like me) fans. Check out his Myspace profile. If the Queen of England heard it she would probably declare it friggin' awesome too. Doubt he would ever get knighted though. Won't find this in yer' Starbuck store. Bravo maaan!

Stuart Ward-AKA Surfing Guitarist-Awesome strange indie music with some vocal, and some purely instrumental tracks. Takes a stab at corporate bull, lying credit card companies, alcoholism, and surfing the waves for fun! Amazing home recorded quality stuff. His weirdest to date. Love it! Check out on iTunes also.
