Album Notes
Pollo Del Mar drags surf music kicking and screaming into the new millinneum, updating the classic sound of twangy, reverb soaked Fender guitars by mixing in layers of atmospheric feedback, and pummeling it all deep into the ocean with a powerhouse rhythm section. Pollo Del Mar's all instrumental set consists of original songs, with the occasional vintage surf tune, or interpretations of compositions by Edvard Grieg, Frank Zappa, Henry Mancini, and The Dead Kennedys.
Your hosts for the evening: Jono Jones suavely stands at center stage; his greatest guitar influences: Hugh Hefner and David Niven. Jeff Turner on fretless bass, a portable energy packet and low-end rocket launch pad. Jeremy Rexford, beating the skins into submission, teaching them a painful lesson they will not soon forget! Ferenc Dobronyi, versatile man about town, roadie, do-gooder and occasional lead guitarist.
Formed in 1993, 3 Studio CDs, 1 Live CD, appearances on 20 tributes and compilation CDs, 1 European tour and a Japan tour is planned for November 2005. All instrumental, lots of odd influences, but still based in the surf sound.

Here is what some nice people had to say about our new CD "The Golden State":
"Pollo Del Mar craft lilting, cinematic vistas, without ever losing sight of surf's classic melodic sensibilities. Very well done." - Guitar Player
"One of the best releases of 2004" - Discoveries
"One of the hottest instrumental rock bands on the scene today"- 20th Century Guitar
"Pollo Del Mar should be part of your life's soundtrack" - Garage and Beat
"almost a spiritual quality, like a transcendent exploration of the abyss" - Rock N Roll Purgatory
"Well, it doesn't get much better than this! ...simply stunning! - Reverb Central
"Their sound is deep and vast, with an element of mystery compelling to anyone who has ever found themselves staring out to sea and sensing its power" - Cozmik Debris
"Let's just say that things never get boring." - Vintage Guitar
"Without a doubt the best Pollo Del Mar release to date, showing off their impeccable playing, songwriting and recording skills" - Continental
"A bunch of clever bastards really" - Pipeline

Pollo Del Mar is spanish for "Chicken of the Sea" which is also a brand name of a popular canned tuna lunch food product in America

Surf Music at its Best!
This record takes me on an oceanic journey of crashing waves and calm seas! And Guitars Guitars Guitars! Great production..love the accordion! Drums & Bass Solid!! A must have for the surf rock collection!

Wonderful stuff
"A Flash of Green" is brilliant, an instant classic of neo-surf guitar. The rest of the album is in much the same vein, and well worth the purchase. The inclusion of a surf guitar version of Grieg's "Hall of the Mountain King" from Peer Gynt is odd and a little jarring, but not without its own goofy charm.
