Home of the surf guitar

Think surf rock classics and a few songs come to mind. The Surfari’s Wipeout, Dick Dale’s Miserlou, Pipeline by the Chantays and of course Bombora, by Australia’s own, Atlantics. Virtually the only successful surf instrumental band not from America.

Echoing the Shadow’s Twangy Atmospheric Instrumental Sound, they were snapped up by CBS Records and became a household name with the release of their giant hit Bombora in 1963.

Nearly 40 years later The Atlantics reformed and are once again recapturing the sound that had propelled them to fame so many years before. Read more.

After completing our European tour in 2013 The Atlantics are announcing our retirement from live touring. We  wish to thank all that came out to see us play live, buy our records and for all the support through the years.

Johnny Rebb: 1939 - 2014

It is with great sadness, that we extend our sincere sympathies to the family of our long time friend, Johnny Rebb who passed away in Newcastle Hospital on Monday 28th July 2014.

We shared many happy adventures and fond times during our musical careers with John, and we will always remember him with joy and affection.

John, you truly were the Gentleman of Rock and to you we say thank you for the privilege of knowing you and working with you.

Rest In Peace

Peter, Theo, Bosco, and Jim.
