    I've seen these guy's before, and couldn't for the life of me remember their name. Thank you for sharing, I can now hopefully buy some of their material now.

    As the guitarist for Denver's Royal Aces surf band, I'm a serious Messer Chups fan, and I really appreciate you posting about them!

    Just out of curiosity, when you saw them, was the same woman in the video playing bass? Or was it some other bass player?

    Because I went on another Messer Chups binge yesterday, my 'Recommended Videos' list is full of M.C and other surfy goodness. Sometimes, the Youtube algorithms/pixies work.



    Aside from Hookey's bass lines, I was never a fan of Joy Division. Maybe I'll re-evaluate now.

    Thanks for posting - made me check them out! They had been showing up in my recommended list on YouTube but I thought they were going to be some sort of metal band. Oops, I was wrong.

    It's a while back now, so couldn't really say.

    Huge Messer Chups fan here. I’m into modern day surf and also listen to Los Twang Marvels! and a couple of others. Magneto is my favorite tune of the Chups. Thanks for posting this!

    I'm a fan of psychobilly and rockabilly. Surf has a similar sound so I catch a bit of that too. Messer Chups came on my radar a few years at suggestion of a guitar slinging coworker. Pretty good stuff!
