BEACH SKULLS ‘BENEATH THE WAVES’ & ‘THE BROOKLYN JIVE’ + BONUS TRACKS - £5
We still have 2 copies left of this rad-as-fuck double-EP, compiling both Beach Skulls’ EPs 'Beneath The Waves' (previously released with us) and 'The Brooklyn Jive' and a few exclusive bonus tracks, equating to 15 songs in total. Which, is pretty sweet, especially for just a fiver. That’s an hour of surfy awesomeness.
1. All Right Island 2. The Waves 3. Grey Today 4. Grey Tomorrow 5. Bourbon 6. 3AM 7: Summertime (cover of George Gershwin)
B: 1. Surfbeat Mojo 2. Surf Freak 3. The Brooklyn Jive 4. Orange Juice (odd future inspiration)
Bonus: 5. Slumber 6. The ZooFather 7. Personal Jesus (cover of Depeche Mode)8. Clear Blue Skies (cover of Juggaknots)
Even if you’re not into tapes/don’t have a tape player, there is a pay anything (inc. nothing, like) download of both EPs (not the bonus’ though, have to get the tape 4 them). All we really want is you to just enjoy the music, in whatever form you feel most comfortable.
Please share, reblog, tell a friend, tell ur local radio, some record label exec, some bands, etc. Pray 2 ur god and tell ‘im 2 big up Beach Skulls on his next meeting with th’ pope or whatever.

BEACH SKULLS // ‘Beneath The Waves’ // TAPE EP // £4
I appreciate that you may not want to know about what I am going to try and advertise to you, but please do try.
My friend Mike and I have been working on putting out this release for the past few months. It’s been a very interesting, brilliant (and at times, stressful) process. This is the first release we have put out on Cheesus Crust Records, an independent D•I•Y cassette only (for now) record label, based in a small town called Wrexham in north Wales, GB.
It might be the first real thing I have done with my life up to now, and it’s an enormous accomplishment to finally get this release out there for people to buy.
Beach Skulls are a very grounded, very DIY fresh lofi two piece, playing a very downbeat variation of surf rock (‘lounge surf’, if you will). Not only is their EP on our tapes, but it is also free to download on our Bandcamp. So, even if your cares are not for a physical release or more specifically, a tape release, you are more than welcome to have a download of the EP, and we want you to have it! Because free music is boss.
In buying this limited edition tape, numbered to 30 copies, you not only get something physical for your money, you get a hand written, personalised thank you note (and believe my aching wrist when I say they are all hand written) with unique artwork on each by both Mike and myself. Also there is a special surprise on the B-SIDE for those wanting to find it. The cover is a fold out, double-sided sleeve, complete with lyrics, and the labels are rad as fuck.
Generally, you’re getting a lot for your little pennies. Rad music, rad designs, rad things to stick on your wall, and the chance to make a connection with some kids who just want to put something awesome out there, doing it all ourselves, funding it all ourselves and all that. A lot of love has been put into these. And that £4 you pay will keep CCR alive to make more releases, and to keep Beach Skulls in gear and in bus fare.
It’s a charity, of sorts.
A: 1. All Right Island 2. The Waves 3. Grey Today 4. Grey Tomorrow 5. Bourbon
B: 1. 3AM 2. Summertime (george gershwin cover)
I realise I’ve written a lot, but if you believe in DIY, independent, cool music like we do, you’ll see what we have to offer.
We wish you a fine day, and we hope to see your name soon.
