Hello all Madeira aficionados!

We mentioned last summer that we will be appearing in a major new documentary on the history of surf music called Sound of the Surf. The film is still in production, and should be out this summer. As a preview, the producer Thomas Duncan has released this promo clip of the Madeira performing our song “Crescent Moon,” shot last August in Orange County, CA:

(You can also see it on Video page of our official site or at the top of our MySpace site) The HQ version should appear in a short while. (Note that the movie itself will be in HD, but space and time constraints forbid the HD version of the above video from being available at this time.)

Expect similiar videos in the next few months from Slacktone, the Surfaris, Laika & the Cosmonauts, Meshugga Beach Party, the Barbwires, the Bitch Boys, the Eliminators and Eddie Bertrand. If you subscribe to the above YouTube channel you will be notified as Tom releases all those clips. Enjoy!

(See some discussion of the above clip on Surf Guitar 101)

We’d also like to remind everyone about our Indy show on Friday, April 10th (with Destination: Earth! and Frankie Camaro’s Atomic Bombay) as well as announce a show in Champaign, IL on Saturday, May 30th (with the Cocktail Preachers!). Please see our Gigs page for more details. These will be our only local shows until the Fall as we’ll be doing a European tour this Summer! More on that in the next news update….

Enjoy the Spring and hope to see you at one of these two shows!
