Ghost Surfers video on YouTube

In both videos Conrad plays a Goya Rangemaster archtop guitar through a Traynor tube amplifier (visible in lower left corner of screen). “Solving the Puzzle” is a different performance of the same song on our “Flying Guitars” and “Guitar Adventures” albums. This is our only recording of “Ghost Surfers.”

“Guitar Fun” CD in NGD Magazine

guitarfunp1“New Gandy Dancer” Magazine from the U.K. just published a review of our “Guitar Fun” CD album (Oct 2016 issue 125). Editor Davy Peckett wrote, “We like The Insanitizers!…another jolly twangfest of no less than 22 great tracks. Good stroke having the keyboard-led Resonance to break up the guitars…The covers are delightful arrangements of Irish Washerwoman (and she rocks!) and the European classic Dark Eyes. Rocket Pack has a great Joe Meek guitar sound. Solid twin guitars with Malaguena. Misigila is the big surf sound…W-Ray Gun a deep resonant twanger finishes this fine set.” Rated 4/4.
