The Live Rock’n’Roll Soul Surf Show: The Dustaphonics

London based the Dustaphonics are not an average band. It all began when actress Tura Satana, who you might know from the ’65 cult classic Faster Pussycat Kill Kill, asked DJ Healer Selecta aka Yvan Serrano to create some music for her new movie. So it happened “Healer Selecta’s Live Rock’n’Roll Soul Surf show”, Dustaphonics, was born.

Not a Traditional band: The Dustaphonics

The Dustaphonics is not a band in the traditional sense; instead, it is composed of founder bandleader, music director & producer Yvan Serrano, who selects and assembles a specific rotating line-up of London-based talented singers. This results in the diverse sound from Surf, to Rhythm and Blues and from Garage to Soul.

But above all, the Dustaphonics will let you dance to the best surf beats and swinging Rhythms. Think of bands like The Excitements, Guantánamo Baywatch and the Blueswater to get an idea of their sound.

Rock ‘n’ Roll of A Giant Dog speaks to the hearts of slackers, burnouts, rockers, sluts, and creeps

Well, it was half way the second round of the usual friday night beer session, when I heard A Giant Dog through the speakers. “Sex and Drugs” was on and I thought It was an unheard soundtrack of the 2017 version of the Rocky Horror Picture Show.

Later we listened more of their songs and discovered a similar groove you hear in Garage Rock music, except there is a theatrical juice over their music. We discovered these folks are hailin’ from Austin, Texas and releases their ablum Pile last hear.

Speaking to the hearts of slackers. Rockers. Sluts and creeps

Curious about their style we searched the web and found out that “No band better speaks to the hearts of slackers, burnouts, rockers, sluts, and creeps everywhere than A Giant Dog.”, Which is a perfect description of their music.

AC/DC, The Ramones, Joan Jett

Forging their friendships in the crucible of their Houston, TX, high school, Sabrina Ellis (vocals), Andrew Cashen (vocals, guitar), and Orville Neeley (drums) first got their start covering AC/DC, The Ramones, Joan Jett, and the finer points of the Back to the Future soundtrack at school dances under the band name Youth In Asia.

The Budrows presenting cigar box Blues and foot stomping beats

The Budrows from California introduce their music best themself. On their website you can read: “Mix  part cigar box guitar with foot stomping beat, add a heaping scoop of blues harp, sprinkle liberally with washboard percussion and top with searing female vocals. Turn up loud, and serve with Whiskey for a good time”.

Folk and Blues with powerful Harmonica solos

This trio really brings fine music. Like no other band they produce catchy Roots, Folk and Blues tunes through guitar riffs and clear vocals. Their harmonica solos do add a whole lot power to their songs and above all, they have good lyrics.

Live on stage performances

Live on stage their songs complemented with their performance are kicking ass. But also their recorded albums create an atmosphere that feels like your just in front of them while they play songs on your porch.

Songs you should really listen are “Roll ‘n Tumblr”, “Devil’s On My Side” and “Mountainbike Song”. These different songs but all have The Budrows flavor.

 Today terrible news came out in the world of Rock ‘n’ Roll; Chuck Berry the father of Rock ‘n’ Roll died at age of 90. All over the web you find beautiful contributions to his music and life. Chuck Berry is also a huge inspiration  for Black Bull Blues. With his music he influenced many musicians. I made up a little list with Chuck Berry favorites.

Viva Rock ‘n’ Roll is a true dance classic. This song fits every setlist in a bar, concert venue or house party. The tight guitar riff is amazing, but above all Chucks vocals really make this song. Viva Rock ‘n’ Roll was released on his 1971 album San Fransisco dues by Chess Records.

“There’s only one true king of rock ‘n’ roll.
His name is Chuck Berry.”

Berry recorded many great songs and logically the movie world featured some of his songs. The 1994 Cult classic Pulp Fiction is one of the movies that featured a Chuck Berry song. Pulp Fiction is a fantastic movie and one of the funniest scenes is the ‘dance’ performance of Vincent and Mia where the dance to “You Never Can Tell”.
