Charlie Don't Surf

There has been more than one artist with the name Charlie Don't Surf. The name is taken from something said by the character Lieutenant Colonel Bill Kilgore, played by Robert Duvall, in the 1979 movie 'Apocalypse Now'. The most recent rendition of Charlie Don't Surf is a 3 piece instrumental band from Muncie, Indiana, who in 2005 released the album 'kvalitetsstøy', a kind of post-rock, math rock venture with hypnotic cool repetitive interludes interspaced with parts of complex and jarring convolutedness, and occasional diversions into rocking out and making a bit of a noise.

Creature With the Atom Brain

Creature with the Atom Brain is a Belgian alternative rock band consisting of Millionaire keyboardist Aldo Struyf (Guitar/Keys/Vocals), Dave Schroyen (Drums), Jan Wygers (Bass) and Michiel Van Cleuvenbergen (Guitar). The band have been said to make "fuzzy stripped-back rock’n'roll noise with a generous helping of weird." The band's name is taken from the Roky Erickson & the Aliens song (which in turn was taken from the 1955 film of the same name), with Struyf citing Erickson's former band the 13th Floor Elevators and the man himself as influencing Creature with the Atom Brain's sound.
