“I watched “Reverb Junkies” again last night. I went to a party yesterday and folks were talking about it. Spending time with friends makes me realize how awesome the film is. It demonstrates the core of the genre and the people involved. I can clearly see what a tight-knit community it truly is in this film. Thank you for the hard work! The film is like a segment of time in my life, captured forever in one bitchin’ documentary!”
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!”
“This film IS surf music!’ “
Whorehay Spahn, Radio Free Bakersfield
“Good footage, good editing, good pace. Nice work.”
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’.”
“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.
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”.
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 dont cuss much ever… but Reverb Junkies is FUCKING AWESOME !!!!!”
Jason Lee, The R.I.P.tides
