The Aqua Velvets-s/t

Photobucket
The Aqua Velvets were part of the 1990's surf revival. The cover of their self-titled debut is simple yet it manages to be humorous without being over the top. So many surf covers of the 1960's show wave after endless wave, but sticking the toy surfer in the water was a great idea. The colors and band logo are effective as well.

The Bomboras-It came from pier 13!

Photobucket

Southern California's Bomboras played heavy surf punk with lyrics that were oftentimes about horror and sci-fi topics. Most of their album covers were cool and this is one of my favorites because it is of course designed to look like a 1950's/60's movie poster.

Famous Monsters-In the night

Photobucket

Starting today and once a day until Halloween we will be posting Halloween/horror/monster related covers. So let's kick it off with "In the night" by Famous Monsters. This was a joke/surf/punk (mainly instrumental) band featuring Devil Doll (Sean Yseult of White Zombie), She-zilla and Vampire Girl. The band took their name from the legendary horror magazine and they had lots of horror and monster references in their songs.
