Rumor has it, or damned near insists that a music fan will rarely come across anything fresh or innovative anymore.  So where does a surf trio from Las Vegas come in?  Simple, by offering one of the most fervent, insistent live sets ever witnessed by a partygoer worth their weight in beer suds!

Story of Thee Swank Bastards

Ten years ago a crack music unit was sent to Prison by a court for a crime they didn't commit. Thee Swank Bastards promptly escaped from a maximum security stockade to the Las Vegas underground. Today, still wanted by the government, Thee Swank Bastards survive as musicians of fortune. If you have a party and no one else can help, and if you can find them, maybe you can hire Thee Swank Bastards.

"Like Colonel Kilgore once said, 'Charlie don't surf.' And neither do Thee Swank Bastards. But that doesn't stop 'em from layin' down some fleet-fingered surf rock. Read on and catch the wave."

Jason Bracelin - Las Vegas Review Journal

"They prove that you don't need to bubble gum-up your sound to play to a crowd. It might not be widely accepted to add that much grit to a surf song, but then again this isn't pop music, and Thee Swank Bastards have definitely found that nice middle ground."

Alfred Montez - Eastside Mix

"Thee Swank Bastards is an instrumental surf-punk group that is good enough to make Agent Orange blush"

Ridge Briel - Mind Equals Blown

"Their sound is like "Surf And Soul" they sound like the Ventures, Jan and Dean, the surf music from the 60's. ...to me it's like Black Sabbath Meets The Ventures."

Bob Mandokini - Big Wheel Magazine

"The songs that Thee Swank Bastards perform have the wonderful immediacy of surf music with its screeching guitar riffs and pulsating bass and with a playfulness that is frankly lacking in so much of today's music. The band really mixes up the type of songs that they play from traditional surf sounds to Bloody Sabbath's "Fairies Wear Boots" to their own compositions including their most popular song, "Just Stick the Tip In" (the title, which speaks for itself, also give a hint to the band's brand of off-color humor.)"

Chris Wolff - Cleveland Rock and Roll
