Watergate Sandals

Watergate Sandals

If the Watergate Sandals surf-culture-meets-Nixon name isn’t enough to convince you they’re all about having fun, consider their cranked-up, frenetic mix of garage, surf and punk. Or how about the term they coined themselves to describe their genre: scooter rock.

Good Neighbor Policy

Good Neighbor Policy

It occurred to Good Neighbor Policy’s Chris and Pat (who only use their first names, like all good neighbors) that instead of hanging out and drinking beer, they could gather up some buddies and turn their drinking sessions into punk rock sessions. A Santa Cruz band was born that day, a little over a decade ago.

Ribsy's Nickel

Fans of Ribsy’s Nickel will be surprised to hear that the longtime local reggae-rock group is a lot like costumed ’70s pop superstars KISS. But despite the fact that they sound, look and act nothing alike, Ribsy’s guitarist Jesse Corona swears it’s true.

Jolly Llamas

Jolly Llamas

Guitarist/vocalist Marc Cavigli recalls the early days of the Santa Cruz band Jolly Llamas, and how people would tell them, “You kind of remind me of Flight of the Concords.” It’s an understandable reaction, as he and partner Roy Behrens initially were an acoustic two-piece that played and sang funny, offbeat tunes. But the band was never about satire. They had something different in mind.

The Sea Wolves

The Sea Wolves

Nick “Sick Boy” Anchorheart has been in a lot of bands. But until recently, he’s never been in that one that’s fully embraced his true punk rock influences—bands like the Misfits, the Ramones and Social Distortion. With the Sea Wolves, he takes those influences and creates exactly the raw, powerful, vibrant, mid-tempo garage-punk sound he’s always wanted.

Babewatch

Babewatch

Most often, drinking and hanging out inspires very little besides more drinking and hanging out. For the band Babewatch, however, it inspired a song … about drinking and hanging out. “Guys Hanging Out” was the first song they ever wrote, and it was exactly what they were doing when they wrote it.

Getaway Dogs

Getaway Dogs

Kai Killion always gets a little weirded out when someone puts on his band’s album from last year, Mermaid Legs & Getaway Dogs. It makes the singer and guitarist for Getaway Dogs hear his own music in an entirely different way.

We Hold These Truths to Be Self-Evident

Saturday, July 4, is the 239th birthday of the United States, commemorating the signing of the Declaration of Independence (the U.S. astrology chart has Aquarius moon—freedom for its people, by its people). Cancer, a liberating and initiating sign, is the “gate” where Spirit enters matter. Cancer receives and distributes Ray 3 (Divine Intelligence) and Ray 7 (new rules, new rhythms, new free nation under God). Cancer represents an intelligent freethinking humanity that can and must create right economics for the world. This means a policy of sharing, an opportunity for the U.S. when Venus (money, resources, possessions, etc.) retrogrades July and August in Leo (the heart of the matter). The United States has a unique spiritual task for the world: to lead humanity within and toward the light, accomplished by its people who must first awaken to this task, learn discrimination and be directed by the soul to assume the Herculean task of spiritual world leadership. Let us review the first words of our Constitution: “We the People of the United States, in order to form a more perfect Union, establish justice, ensure domestic tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general welfare, and secure the blessings of liberty to ourselves and our posterity, do ordain and establish this constitution for the United States of America.” Let us form that union together. The following is a review of the spiritual tasks for each sign. Read all the signs. They all apply to everyone.
