Freaky Tiki Surf-ari: The Return

Moai zowie!

That’s right…the Freaky Tiki Surf-ari is back and better than ever! We even have a logo this time around! We’re still going to take a look at the connections between Tiki culture, surf music and horror while not being quite as…overwhelming as last year’s installment. Weird Jon has also been fine-tuning his music reviewing style for maintaining the same in-depth coverage without having quite the same length of last year’s work. Those new to the Freaky Tiki Surf-ari should definitely look at the previous incarnation:

The Sound of Tiki
Strange But Surf
Arthur Lyman
Witches in Bikinis
Waitiki
The Waitiki 7
Shag! and The Art Of Tiki
Daikaiju
Kava Kon
Arts & Crafts
The Moon-Rays
Chaino (NSFW cover art)
The Mission Creeps
Stereophonic Space Sound Unlimited
Man Or Astro-Man?
Robert Drasnin
The Surf Zombies
Don Tiki
Satan’s Pilgrims
The Ghastly Ones

That ought to tide you over until the new reviews are posted. As an added bonus, we have a special tie-in episode scheduled for our “6’+ (Six Foot Plus)” podcast! If all goes according to plan, it will have a fine mix of exotica and surf music taken from musicians covered last year, this year, and even some artists we hope to cover in the future. Keep your eyes here (or at either of our Facebook pages) for more details.

In the meantime, you can have fun listening to past episodes, where you’ll find at least one surf or exotica track per episode. Our most recent episode, “Aloha Luau Aloha” should be of definite interest to all who are reading this.
