    The Cramps - Bad Music for Bad People (Fontana A&M)

    While surf-punk bands like Agent Orange had punks hitting the beach in the '80s, psychobilly outfit The Cramps brought a darker, sexier side to surf music, as singer Lux Interior flexed his vocal muscles, all Elvis-on-acid-like, over guitarist Poison...

    The Wizards of Time and Black Carl explore the life aquatic at Hotel San Carlos' Star Swim

    Sugar High - Let the Sunshine Out (Thousandaire Records)
