Bitchin!

Matt Hurray

In cart Not available Out of stock

Surf Rock at its best! Great tunes and even greater execution. Hurray!!!

Matt Hurray has not only amazed critics and fans with brilliant surf masterpieces on releases such as ‘Cool, Cajjj, Rippin’, Rad!’, ‘Diamond Head Dumb Head’, ‘Egyptian Surfer’ and ‘Unnecessary Commentary’ but now it really seems he is determined to single-handedly revive this almost forgotten genre, while leading from the front line. Influenced by the long admired and never forgotten sounds of surf rock legends (The Ventures, The Challengers, The Surfaris…) Matt Hurray’s frenetic, frenzied and feverish original songs are exciting, entertaining and impressively sharp.

Hurray has been writing and performing original music for over 30 years. A founding member of the ever rocking, underrated, self-destructive, extremely popular Orange County California super group Just Plain Big, he started his solo career in 2012 with the full length surf instrumental CD release entitled ‘Egyptian Surfer’ to exceptional reviews across the country. In 2016 Hurray released the eighteen song surf epic CD ‘Unnecessary Commentary’ which received extraordinary reviews, radio airplay throughout the world, and soundtrack credits for both radio and television advertisements. Hurray has performed with The Hoodoo Gurus, The English Beat, The Blaster’s, They Might Be Giants, Sublime, and Dick Dale to name just a few.

"Bitchin" is a strong release that includes nine surf covers (some standards and some obscure gems) and a re-recorded / remix of Hurray's own song 'El Rollo'. "Bitchin" will be followed up by another collection of ten songs at the end of July or early August.

The Players:

Matt Hurray: Guitar and Vocal Jim Rice: Guitar and Vocal Peter Freiberger: Bass Guitar Gary Brandin: Lap Steel Guitar Gary Ferguson: Drums

Hope you dig it... BITCHIN!

Farrah

Matt Hurray

In cart Not available Out of stock

Released on January 18th, 2020. This is a killer track written about Hurray's first true-ish love, Farrah Fawcett! Including nods to the famous poster ("Did you think you could just hang on my wall") and to the t-shirt he wore as a youngster ("I had you hanging off my shoulder") Hurray captures the vibe perfectly in this rocking tune that reminds us of The Replacements, The Hoodoo Gurus, and perhaps a touch of Red Kross. This one is a keeper!

In cart Not available Out of stock

Matt Hurray's 2012 Debut Solo CD "Egyptian Surfer" takes listeners on a musical adventure with upbeat grinding surf guitar tunes as well as a few mellow acoustic and electric numbers to create a body of work that is a joy to listen to over and over again.

MATT HURRAY, founding member and bassist for the ever popular super group JUST PLAIN BIG has released his first ever solo project of instrumental surf tunes. After years of on again / off again ventures with Just Plain Big, which included two national tours, three full length albums, music videos and numerous shows with bands such as THE HOODOO GURUS, THE ENGLISH BEAT and THEY MIGHT BE GIANTS to name a few, the group slowed to a stand still and the members moved on in various musical directions.

This new album "Egyptian Surfer" was written, performed, and recorded over the spring and summer of 2011 by Matt Hurray who plays Guitar, Bass, various percussion instruments and Vocals. Southern California music legends Jim Rice (Additional Guitars, Bass, and Harmonies), Gary Ferguson (Drums), Danny Timms and Eric Vinje (Keyboards) also perform on the album. "Egyptian Surfer" takes the listener on a musical adventure with upbeat grinding surf guitar tunes as well as a few mellow acoustic and electric numbers to create a body of work that is a joy to listen to over and over again.

The first review of the album from David James of Outsider Records confirms that Hurray has "achieved something extraordinary - a batch of songs that makes your heart sing, your psyche smile and your liver fear the incoming wave of celebratory alcohol...A++!"

ENJOY!
