“WOW WHAT AN AWESOME FILM!!! I got to see it for the first time yesterday and I really really enjoyed it. Steve & crew did an excellent job.”
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’.”
Baron Shimmy Shivers, The Ghastly Ones
“Tip of the hat to Steve Seagren… great job on REVERB JUNKIES! I enjoyed it a lot! Captures what’s happening and the cast of characters in this world perfectly!”
“I dont cuss much ever… but Reverb Junkies is FUCKING AWESOME !!!!!”
Ivan Pongracic, The Madeira and The Space Cossacks
“Thanks to Steve for this wonderful labor of love. I’d say you captured the scene pretty much perfectly, in all its aspects. Sometimes maybe a bit too perfectly… However, it’s really a great doc, and I know that when I put it on in 25 years I will be amazed at all the memories of so many good friends and what a great, great time we had. It captures this moment in this community, and I for one am very grateful, Steve.”
“I got mine today, and just finished watching it. AWESOME!!! This is a must-own DVD for all surf fans. Kudos to Steve Seagren and everyone involved.”
Dario Gomez, Gomez Amps
“Steve did a great job with this film. . It’s a film style/presentation that is great for this viewer. I like it lots!”
Sandy ("Oceana") of 9th Wave & NESMA HQ
“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”.
Trey Rhodes, Surfside IV
“I dug this time-capsule of a film called “Reverb Junkies” and recommend it highly for all surf music nuts like myself. It encapsulates much of the goings-on during the 2010 and 2011 Surf Guitar 101 Conventions and what looks like Tiki Oasis, to boot. The footage is a bit raw around the edges in the same way that the cool underground music documentaries were back in the day…and this style suits the music very well, I think. It’s a joyful, warts-and-all,…
“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!”
