It's Surfme'n'tal

What could be a cooler cover! My two favorite things together, Surf & Tiki.
Estrume'n'tal formed in mid-1997 in the city of Belo Horizonte, Brazil, by Claudio Rocha (drums), Fred Maia (bass), Lino Rodrigues and Guilherme Mendes (guitars). Along its history the band has performed on several important indie/alternative events in Brazil, such as the Goiania Noise Festival, National Garage, Hellsurf, Ruído Festival and Primeiro Campeonato Mineiro de Surfe (First Minas Gerais State Surf Music Championship), alongside with bands like Man or Astroman?, Guitar Wolf, Autoramas, Ratos de Porão, Matanza and others.
Estrume'n'tal's first album, Surfme'n'tal, was released worldwide by the American label Golly Gee Records and had a significant impact in the American and European alternative scene. Because of this, Estrume'n'tal was invited to participate in a number of international instro rock / surf music compilations. The band also featured in Brazilian compilations, produced two videoclips and provided the soundtrack for short films, American mountain boarding DVDs and several surf programs on Brazilian TV.
The new album, Neander'n'tal, has been released worldwide also by Golly Gee Records.
