Revolution Surf : Horror Themed Edition & Show # 763


To commemorate this year’s annual surf rock episode of Revolution Rock, the program was made up entirely of horror themed tracks. Horror themed surf songs have been something that has been present in surf music for quite some time. Many horror-based themes have surfaced in surf/instrumental rock songs going back to the beginnings of surf music. Most likely due to the influx of the many monster movies of the time period, this type of surf music has been combined with film and TV on countless occasions adding a different mood and dimension to whatever it is associated with. Horror themed surf music is often creepy and spooky sounding, although some of it has often been seen as kitschy or cheesy. This type of surf music has operated parallel to the sunnier themed surf songs that have been created in the genre. The program featured tracks from The Ghastly Ones, Russia’s Messer Chups, The Primitive Finks, The Ventures, Link Wray and more.
