One of the most energetic, and talented surf musicians on the scene is finally, for the first time ever playing a few selected shows in NorCal.
Mike Barbwire, bandleader of infamous Swedish act The Barbwires has been writing songs and recording for several months to prepare for this tour.
The music Mike will be performing is a mix of beautiful, trembling reverb drenched tunes straight out of the ocean, mixed with some raw, mean, vicious guitar slinging early 60’s rock’n’roll style. Think early Link Wray for a reference.
The last album released with The Barbwires has by many experts been considered ''one of the 10 best surf albums ever recorded'', and the recordings Mike is working on will definitely not let any one down.
A brand new 45 has been recorded and will be out on Spanish label Sleazy Records
The 45 w recorded together with a Del-Tones style line-up with a saxophone section, piano, rhythm guitar, drums and upright bass.
Mike says: With this recordings I tried to dig into the sounds of the instrumental era before the surf boom with artists like: The Imps,Arthur Smith, Boots Brown, The Virtues, Preston Epps, Roland James, The Cyclones, Hot Toddy´s, The Frantics, The Royaltones, The Strangers, The Tune Rockers, Plas Johnson, The Fugitives, The Rockin R´s, The Elrondos, The Hunters, The Ramrods.
