Surf Punks – Locals Only – Cassette

Locals Only is the debut album by the American surf punk band Surf Punks. It was released in 1980 and is considered a classic in the surf punk genre.

Surf Punks, hailing from Malibu, California, blended surf rock and punk influences to create their signature sound. “Locals Only” captures their energetic and irreverent approach to music, combining catchy surf-inspired guitar riffs with punk rock attitude.

As the name would indicate, the Surf Punks combined two emerging sounds of the late ’70s, punk rock and surf revival. The band, fronted by Dennis Dragon, personified the surf’s up, lighthearted West Coast attitude, they were even featured in a PBS documentary demonstrating “California Beach English.”

The album features a mix of fast-paced, upbeat tracks and humorous, tongue-in-cheek lyrics. Surf Punks’ songs often revolve around themes of beach culture, surfing, partying, and teenage rebellion. Their music embodies the carefree and rebellious spirit of the California surf scene.

The Surf Punks’ irreverence, immaturity, and skepticism of outsiders came shining through in songs like “My Beach,” “No Fat Chicks,” “Teenage Girls,” and “Locals Only.” These songs showcase Surf Punks’ surf rock influences, punk energy, and playful lyrical style. The band’s self-titled debut in 1979, made on their own Day-Glo label, became a cult classic

Locals Only gained a cult following and became a favorite among fans of surf punk and alternative rock. The album exemplifies Surf Punks’ unique blend of surf rock and punk, capturing the sun-soaked, carefree vibes of the Southern California beach culture.

For fans of surf punk and those looking for a fun and energetic musical experience, “Locals Only” by Surf Punks is worth a listen. It represents an important release in the surf punk genre and stands as a testament to the band’s influence on the punk rock and surf music scenes.
