ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
"Gothic Surf-tunes? Vampires on the Beach? What is this world coming to?!"
-Dr. von Helsing

Well get on your bikini and your biker jacket, because summer is just around the corner - and it's never been quite this weird! Yes indeed, sexy vampires have hit the beach (and the stage) and they call them the Vampire Beach Babes. Reliable sources have confirmed as of January the snow boarding set has already been infected, and the downtown fetish club scene has likewise been converted. Health officials are not yet sure of a cure for this rapidly spreading craze, but a certain Dr. von Helsing has suggested silver crosses, wooden stakes and lots of garlic.

At least some of this hysteria can be blamed on the inclusion of the Vampire Beach Babes underground hit 'Gothic Surf-a-rama' on the premier Gothic music compilation 'Gothic Sanctuary'. Such recognition no doubt exacerbated the spread of the Vampire Beach Babes madness. Their December 1st 2000 performance at the Opera House in Toronto was voted as second best performance of the year 2000 (second to VnV Nation and tied with Nine Inch Nails) by Gothic online community Dark Entries (www.dark-entries.com), further accelerating the spread of this scourge. Cover page mention and feature of the Vampire Beach Babes in the widely celebrated horror magazine Rue Morgue did nothing to protect the general public from this menace. Spanking in New Years 2001 with a midnight performance to 500 wanton fetish scene aficionados, at The Big Bop in Toronto, Canada, brought this insanity to a fevered pitch. Then, Halloween 2001 at the Fetish Masquerade and of course the now infamous RCA Records showcase at CBGB's Gallery in New York City! At Toronto's Velvet Underground in February 2002, the TV camera crews of BRAVO and The New Music did their part in documenting this public menace. Furthermore, the president of TROMA Entertainment (the great Lloyd Kaufman) has hand picked the VBB to write the theme song for TROMA's next worldwide release feature film "Tales From The Crapper".

Now, to follow up their critically acclaimed independent release 'Reckless Summer', the Vampire Beach Babes are gearing up for a Summer 2002 CD release of all new material. The world has much to fear!

"Can anything be done to stop this madness?!"
-Dr. von Helsing

Tasty, heavy and real groovy!
A surprise of a CD with some heavy, tasty and groovy distinctful sounds. Tune #5 can get old, but all in all, a real good CD front to back. Get the word out on VBB! They make me want to grab a board and catch a wave.

Took a risk; happily surprised...
This is a band I took a chance on; never heard of them or anything by them, but was looking for something new in the genre. I am quite pleased with this album. Has everything you'd expect without being tiring or rehashing over-used standards, which is exactly what you need to see to know a genre isn't dying. Especially love Tomb Mau Mau; a perfect match up with songs like Horrorpop's Horror Beach, Cramps' Surfin' Bird, 45 Grave's Surf Bat, and other undead-themed surfer music. Will definately be adding more of them to my collection.

Midnight surf party with Dracula.
Ever wonder what a surf beach party would be like with Dracula and his crew? Well here`s your answer. The Vampire Beach Babes hail from Toronto(maybe that explains it) and they definitely found their niche. Goth-surf, who`d a thunk it? Nevertheless this is a fun catchy CD for those who like to wear black, even at the beach. BUT IT!

Hanging ten at night...
VBB fills that void in gothic music: surf. While bands like Deadbolt and The Bomboras are more 50's rock, VBB owns the gothic surf field and owns it well.

Each track has enough surf and enough goth to keep everyone happy with "Gothic Surf-a-rama" and "Creepy Baby Man" ruling the roost.

Anyone without this CD should be buried to the neck while the surf comes in...

catchy, but gets old rather fast
Well, when I first listened to it I really got caught up by the lyrics and music. It was the off beat type of music I always keep an ear out for. But I have found that it got old very fast. I suppose if you popped it in the player a couple times a year it would be okay. Anyone who likes surf music will probably like this. Just be cautious about how much you listen to it.

Goths on the beach-who'da thunk it!
Old time rock-n-roll with a pinch o'goth and a dash o'surf and voila!! This is fun stuff, pure and simple. This band knows their roots, not just musically but kitschilly too! Definitely the band to invite to a midnight howl beach party or a cemetery wedding!
