“Although there are a lot of recordings of surf bands in the world (yay!), there are not a lot of books or films or documentaries about the genre. This is a new one, and a good one. I highly recommend getting & collecting a copy for your surf-abilia files”.
Whorehay Spahn, Radio Free Bakersfield
“Good footage, good editing, good pace. Nice work.”
“This film IS surf music!’ “
Wally Farkas, Molken Music
“For me, there are so many highlights in this movie…I loved the editing and cinematography, especially seeing Insect Surfer David Arnson cartwheeling across the floor. Also, Daikaiju’s performance was an intense climax to “Reverb Junkies”…as riveting as the bull sacrifice ending of ‘Apocalypse Now’.”
“I LOVE this film! Finally able to put faces to names I’ve only heard on podcasts…great to see so much live footage, especially dug Norm and The Ghastly Ones…Tiki Tena makes for a great interview…she’s funny, candid, and genuine…just like the film! Great job!”
Timothy C. Sullivan, The Supertones
“Just watched it. This is a must see for every one. It’s really our story. Lots of really great interviews…and lots of great music. I give it five stars “
Lorenzo Valdambrini, Surfer Joe & His Boss Combo and The Wadadli Riders
“…It shows quickly and easily how this music scene works around the world, collecting opinions and points of view, sometimes different one from the other, but everyone is giving his idea from his own personal perspective… The movie does NOT want to tell how this music was born and why, it just tells what it is NOW and how much LOVE there is around it. I like “Reverb Junkies” and I highly recommend everybody to see it!”
“I dont cuss much ever… but Reverb Junkies is FUCKING AWESOME !!!!!”
“The film “Reverb Junkies” really explains the new breed and the breeds that came before it very succinctly, plus the music is great throughout…”
“Reverb Junkies” rocks with the rush of a riff, rolls and pushes and pulls like the tides. It’s a fun ride that never ends and always crests.
"Reverb Junkies" screened in Mexico!
The film was shown on November 8, 2014 as part of the Abierto de Surf Instrumental 2014 .
