MP3 Dead Sea Surfers - Dead Sea Surfers
An odd band that marries Goth w/ a Rock N Roll Punk sensibility, smoothes it all out w/ a touch of polished synthpop. The Church bells & the subaqueous whispery vocals has the classic Goth edge but agile guitar, picks the lock, & reshapes the landscape.

Surf The Dark Side with the Dead Sea Surfers. The brainchild of the Dead Sea Surfers is the singer & songwriter Aleister Tennyson Hobbs the vocalist, guitarist and keyboardist has performed with various projects & bands on many stages through the years, from LA to New York City and could be seen doing pick up jams from 1996 through 1999 in various venues in the tri-cities, located in upper east Tennessee.
In recent years past Aleister lent his keyboard skills to The project, DE over a period of one year while performing
in NYC in over a dozen locations in 2004. Despite being a fan, friend & hired gun performer for DE''s music, Aleister
regressed & reformed his older band, whose roots stem from a simpler earlier period, it''s beginnings coincided with
the post punk era & the band for all intensive purposes: Dead Sea Surfers was reborn.
The Dead Sea Surfes was created to actulize & evocate Aleister''s memories of post punk, synthpop, goth music Aleister grew up enjoying in his youth. The music expanse is deeply bass laden, synth-heavy but not completely synthetic music, translation: not 2 people with a laptop and 4 keyboards on stage) but a traditional rock band line-up with real instruments, Guitar, Bass, Live Drums, and a keyboard player in the post punk genre leaning gothic in fashion, style & substance.
If the Dead Sea Surfers were performing in the early to mid 1980''s there''s no doubt they would have been a force to reckon with in the underground subculture. What would later be dubbed the goth scene. Their signature smooth, chart-topping sound is a fashionable blend, reminscent of past goth classics but a sound that is smart, solid, enduring and bound with a newness in it''s raw simplicity.
(On a personal health note: Aleister was diagnosed with diabetes in July of 1999 fell into a diabetic coma for 3 months where he suffered multiple organ failures and was given a Tracheostomy in order to keep him alive & was later told he may never sing again & in the following months had to relearn to walk, and did not pick up and play a guitar for over a year)
so to record the album & sing all the vocals seem quite the accomplishment at this point and it also seems fitting to mention that after Aleister''s transfiguration where he took in over 100 units of fresh blood to sustain life in 1999 that his shapeshifter abilities with respect to sound began to appear & filter down to an ability to mimic classic & modern gothic hymns but the question, which
sound should he and the band ultimately persue. You know what, to this listener, who cares when most of his songs are lucid, dark, catchy, perspicuous, well-arranged high-quality recordings.
The Dead Sea Surfers can be the best soundtrack for every day which to some,
