Surf Monster!

Click on the music player below...

My unhinged alter-ego, El Borko presents Surf Monster!  An album of straight-up surf guitar, vocal harmony, rockabilly, and a few trippy soundscapes for those whose watch says 4:20.

There's a book...

“A Tale Of Two Surfers" which is like a 1960s monster movie in comic book form.

It’s about about a mad scientist surfer chick who swaps the heads of two unfortunate surfers. Five of the twelve songs on Surf Monster come from the events and characters in this story.

Brook Adams is El Borko

...but El Borko is not Brook Adams

El Borko was raised on Hatch chili and gamma rays until he learned surf guitar. In dreams he rode towering waves of electric twang. His amplifier tubes glowed like lava plunging into the eternal sea.
