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
7: Summertime (cover of George Gershwin)
1. Surfbeat Mojo
2. Surf Freak
3. The Brooklyn Jive
4. Orange Juice (odd future inspiration)
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.

Inc. both EPs, including a surf cover of Odd Future’s Orange Juice.
If you’ve not picked up a tape lately, I’d say you should pick up one of ours.
After selling out of the first run of Beneath The Waves tapes, and Beach Skulls prepping their second EP ‘The Brooklyn Jive' soon after that, we decided to bring out something special to tide this era off. Now they have begun doing shows, we have decided to release a compilation tape of the first and second EPs, one on each side, with a few exclusive bonus tracks throw in for good measure.
They’re £5.00, and they’re limited to 10/10. We have 5 and BS have 5.
Also, if you already have a copy of the original BTW tape but are gutted you ain’t got one’a these new babies, pop us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll swap you this one for your old one. Offer ends Sunday evening, mind!
So yeah. Please pick up a copy, buy one for a friend, let them know WHAT THE DEAL IS and get them over here. And watch out for Beach Skulls tourin’.

Beach Skulls after their first gig.
Mixtape is out.
Happy record store day.
Sorry it’s not in an actual record store. What can I say? Wrexham don’t have one.
A bitto news.
Along with the new mixtape coming out on Saturday, hopefully by the 26th, we’ll have a new Beach Skulls related tape.
10 copies, combing their first EP Beneath The Waves, their second The Brooklyn Jive and some exclusive bonus tracks!
I just uploaded the mixtape we’re hoping to put out soon.
A is a collection of awesome garage rock tracks and the B side is more downbeat, electronic based synthy stuff. The bands and artists (thus listed below) are some of the most enjoyable, talented musicians going today (or in the 80s, for The Gruesomes). I personally think it rocks.
I’ll keep you guys informed on the tape release of this. The tracklist is liable to change, but it will all become clear eventually.
