Surfing USSR are Mark Howe mambo king on bass and poster star courtesy of Real World Records, one of the Gibb brothers Drummer Matt Gibb courtesy of RCA records and guitarist Greg Malcolm formerly of the Greg Malcolm Set courtesy of Pagan Records.
Notoriety, they always had plenty of, but popular and critical acceptance came slowly to Surfing USSR.
Numerous setbacks were encountered and defeated along the way, such as the difficult time when a media leak revealed that only one band member really surfed.
Surfing USSR's authenticity was under question but their immense popularity with the public remained unaffected. Since then the band have gone from strength to strength after modifying their show based on the many suggestions received in their suggestion box.
Today, it would seem very hard to say enough good things about Surfing USSR and anyone who doubts that has only to listen to one side of their CD.
