Groninger surfrockers begonnen in 1990 en bestaan nog steeds. Grote bewonderaars van The Tielman Brothers en Dick Dale. The Krontjong Devils behoren tot de grote groep fans van surf rock in Groningen, die in de jaren negentig zelfs een Stichting oprichtte. Maakte een Amerikaanse tournee met live elpee op het Amerikaanse Telstar label.Three years ago I drove up north to the old city of Groningen to look at a group of young performers, who were presenting their debut EP at the club where the action is, the VERA teenclub. While entering the club the band was already playing on front of a crowd of swinging teenagers.
I was immediately impressed, in fact 'stunned' would be closer to the truth. The boys, Jan, Kees, Hendrik Jan, Jan Pier and Gerhard were fresh funny and totally uninhibited.
Through the years I've been following thede guys when they were playing at teendances and frat and poolparties. I can honestly report that sometimes the air was filled with off-key guitar playing and other misdemeanors, but then again there was always was that good humour and enthousiasm that made it easily bearable.
I have to admit that they started playing better and better since the first time I met our heroes. This can be heard on some great EP's you surely want to hear. I sincerely hope you enjoy listening to this album - Dr. Oet connoisseur of great surf & garage rock&rollThe Krontjong Devils:
