“We used to get our kicks from surfing magazines” said the Go Betweens. Well now you can get your kicks from the Surfing Magazines - a indie rock supergroup containing members of Slow Club and those ever visible lads from the Wave Pictures. They intend to rock out and blow your mind. Fun times ahead then.

This one has had a post-it note on for a few weeks which announced that it was 'absolutely awful' but I'm finding it hard to figure out what the perpetrator of such aggression got so annoyed about. It just seems no better nor worse than any other the Wave Pictures record. You know with any Wave Pictures and related record you are going to get twiddly guitar solos so we have to deal with that but otherwise this collaboration with members of Slow Club is an 'absolutely fine' selection of atmospheric surfy ballads with the odd boisterous surf instrumental thrown in for good measure.
As David Tattersall's quivering voice leads things I can barely discern it from any other Wave Pictures record - it maybe has more of a 60's garage rock feel with low down and dirty production and bluesy guitar licks. A record to be played live in sweaty clubs whilst beer is flowing. Absolutely not sophisticated but that is not it's point.
