MMP – Who plays what? Could you describe yourselves in a few words..

SR – My name is Gaz Marson and I’m on guitar and lead
vocals. Thomas Lorioux is on bass and Gaybeul Gualdi is on
drums. The Surf Rats is an English old school psychobilly
band that began in the early 1980’s.

MMP – How did the band get started?

SR – I started the band in 1983 with my younger brother on
bass and my next door neighbor on drums. We were into all
the early rockabilly stuff that was part of my parents
record collection but grew up in an era of heavy metal
before punk rock and the rockabilly revival came along. We
were into the Stray Cats and all that early neo rockabilly
of the late 70’s and early 80’s too. And then we heard bands
like The Meteors and The Cramps.

  • MMP – Who plays what? Could you describe yourselves in a few words…
  • Vlad – I play the guitar and sing, i play since the 88′ in psychobilly bands, bands like Os Escroques, Os Cervejas, Os Catalépticos and now the Sick Sick Sinners. Mutant Cox play the bass and sings, used to play with me in Os Catalépticos and Os Cervejas and in many other psychobilly, punk bands in the town. Emiliano play the drums and sings, he comes from the HC and Metal scene in São Paulo, playing since a long time aswell.
  • MMP – How did the band get started?
  • Vlad – Me and Cox used to play together in Os Catalépticos and we had this project, the Sick Sick Sinners, when Os Catalépticos decide to stop playing, naturally the Sinners start to play more and start to record albums, and tour around. The idea the band its to mix the original or classic psychobilly sound with more punk, hardcore and metal style. This is what we call Psychobilly Maldito.
