We are Canada's original Surf Punk Instrumentalists existing from 1979-1982. We were groovy teenagers living far from the west coast. We played with many new-wave and punk bands confusing audiences everywhere.
It was not easy playing surf instrumental music when clubs wanted Black Sabbath, Black Flag or .... any other band wearing black clothes with vocals. We did manage to align with some other young bands around town and play the usual Toronto dives like the Turning Point, Larry's Hideaway, Cabana Room to name a few. We also managed to record 7 original songs which appeared on several Post Punk compilations distributed around the world.
We reunited in 2014 for several shows with all original members. That’s 32 years later! The future promises to be interesting for us retro-fitted Wasagas. We signed with UK’s Sharawaji Records and released three full length LPs "Return of the Wasagas" and "Crash Monster Beach" which entered the international surf charts at #1 and remained there for 6 weeks ... and now "Dance Party a' Go Go" which has also reached #1 in the charts. Now a staple on the Canadian Rockabilly/Surf scene, there are many live shows coming to your town... Surfs Up again !
