Surf and garage rock means high energy and high sounds and it is not played for fame and fortune. It's played for fun, for the ultimate feeling. Keywords: rough, tough, dirty, greasy, porn, romance, hotrods, movie score, humor, sci-fi, mystery, melancholy and fresh motor oil covered californian surf waves.
Surf and garage has been developing itself for over 45 years. The movement has never been a prominent one nor was it on top of the charts. And that is a good thing!
Planet Creep makes a deliciously pounding and rattling mix of surf instrumentals and garage rock with a touch of sci-fi and rockabilly and does this in an incredible way. Planet Creep sticks to those all-time style elements such as a slightly out of tune squealing, shrieking sound of the guitar, the wining jangling twangs of the bass. And drums, yes the drums are like a stampede of wild animals that ran amuck.
