I have all of those songs on my iPod except the cone heads and garden path.
Great memories. Actually taped Savages Cuts 2 onto an audio tape by aiming the cassette player at the telly , now I remember I used to do it a fair bit. Different times, but good times.
A lot of my music tastes came from surf vids. I was a surf vid tragic and loved it.

I also loved the Filthy Habits soundtrack. Watched the whole video yesterday just to hear it again. The footage of Occy is phenomenal - does anyone surf with that kind of flair and flow at the moment?

The Social Distortion song was called Prison Bound.

Ha ha I also did that, yeah back in that era it was a lot harder to discover good music, was living in NW Tassie in that era couldn't even get JJJ the only way we could get a taste of decent music was from surf vids and taping rage and spending the next day searchin for decent songs then ordering the actually albums in from record store.

Can't remember which vids but 2 of my favourites would be:
D.I.G. - 2 way dreamtime (Green Iguana?)
Radio Birdman - Hand of law
Both bands had plenty of airtime on surf vids.
Also liked hearing Even and The Fauves.
And of course the whole Morning of the Earth soundtrack. Several songs from it have made it into my band's set-lists over the years.

I loved the Billabong Surf into Summer vid. I think I played that till it was fuzzy. Not only for the surfing but there was some pretty cool tracks on it as well. Think I was introduced to TSOL through that.

That, in addition to the vids mentioned by the guys above.

That one always reminds me of a young Jason buttonshaw, such a talented young grom.

Im not a huge fan of that So Cal punk bands can be a bit a same same if listening to a whole album but those Taylor steele movies in the 90,s , momentum, focus etc had some good songs on them, Bad Religion, Pennywise, Sprung monkey, No FX etc

Heres a link to a blog with all the tracks linked to ITunes. http://surfvideosoundtracks.blogspot.com.au

Those surf vids from Chris Brystrom (Blazing boards, Freeze frame, son of the last surf movie etc) in the late 80,s early 90,s also had good soundtracks, bit more mainstream but still good, INXS, H & C, Painters and dockers, Hoodo Gurus etc

The narration in hindsight is kinda corny but always had heaps of good Aussie east coast point break footage.

Inspiration for today's WOTD caption. Jane's Addiction 'Mountain Song' 

Still a great tune.
