What happened to audio samples?


 
After peak of instrumental and surf music in 1962 and '63 when the Ventures, the Shadows, Dick Dale, Duane Eddy, Beach Boys and others were sitting comfortably on the top of charts and had a lot of teenage followers all around the world the endless summer ended with the British Invasion - lads like Stones and the Who didn't surf.

Long era of obscurity followed until new explosion in early 90s when Dick Dale's 1962 cover of "Misirlou" got big play in Pulp Fiction and surf music revived with old dinosaurs like Dick Dale, the Ventures recording new material and musicians of next generations evolving old tradition with punk/ska/hard rock touch. Now there are surf muzos everywhere, good and bad, and there is a number of names to mention, like Los Straitjackets, Man Or Astro-men?, Laika and the Cosmonauts, but there are zillions of new records appearing every day, so here goes my personal selection, I hope you'll like it.
