Don't call it surf rock! When Noa Deane isn’t surfin’ he can usually be found with a guitar in his hands channeling his alt-rock heroes Mudhoney and Melvins. Last September Noa recorded his first EP entitled barbie69 entirely by himself at his parents house in their kitchen and put it up on Bandcamp. Jamming the album for a while now, the more we listened, the more we wanted to know. So over the course of a few txt msgs we got Noa shine a little light on his music background. When did you first start playing music? What was the first instrument you learned on? When I was about 12, I had a red Fender Squire Stratocaster. You recorded the album in your parents house, what did you record on? Yeah it was in the downstairs kitchen using Garageband. You play guitar left-handed, but drum right-handed. Which hand do you write with? I write with my right hand. I guess I have a few wires crossed in my brain.Heard you own a cello, do you play that one regular or goofy? Bought one and never play it, haha.Any Aussie musicians you look up to or have influenced you? Inxs is sick and I like Silverchair too. Why Blister? Why anything? haha How’s the album doing? You only need to sell 35,000 to get a gold record in Australia, do you already know where you are going to hang yours? It's going alright. Sold $400 bucks worth, but I'll never sell that many. Haha Below's a little taste of Blister live last week in Manly, Australia during Volcom's epic week long takeover of the Hotel Steyne during Riders Week. Give Noa and Blister a follow on Instagram for more.

On the first of october the Volcom store Munich turned 5 years. This was a great reason to blow of the roof of the Strom-Club in munich. First Limestone Whale and Asteroid shook the ground with a blasting show of the finest stoner rock, and afterwards the two DJs Fluppe auf Ex und Vanicea made the crowd dance untill dawn. When everybody stumbeld outside in the first sunlight we could only see smiling happy faces. A big thank you to everybody who helped organizing this event and everyone who took part of that sick birthday party! GERMAN VERSION Am 01.10.2016 war es so weit, der Volcom Store München wurde 5 Jahre alt. Wir haben uns nicht lumpen lassen und gemeinsam mit euch und der musikalischen Untermalung von Limestone Whale und Asteroid das Strom in München fachgerecht zerlegt! Die DJs Fluppe auf Ex und Vanicea sorgen im Anschluss mit feinstem Sound dafür, dass auch nach dem Konzert noch das Tanzbein geschwungen und das ein oder andere Bier getrunken wurde. Wir hoffen ihr hattet mindestens genauso viel Spaß wie wir, und möchten uns bei allen bedanken die diesen Abend so wundervoll mit uns begossen haben!

Right before germany celebrated its 26th reunion anniversary, we pre feast to celebrate the 7th anniversary of the Volcom Store Stuttgart! The party went down in the halls of the club Zwölfzehn aka the Love club, great location to get everyopne hyped. But as the brews were already flowing, the berlin based band „ASTROBOY“ raised the stoke levels to a boundless atmosphere! They definetly heated up the club with their hard garage sound. Afterwards „SUPERIOR“ and „GAST“ wrapped up the bunfight and lead the party to more mayhem At the end there’s not much to say but THANKS to all the people that came have fun and contributed to this wild party. ASTROBOY GERMAN VERSION Bevor die deutsche Wiedervereinigung ihr 26. Jubiläum feierte, gab es am 2. Oktober eine für UNS mindestens genau so wichtige Festivität! Der Volcom Store Stuttgart feierte am 2. Oktober sein 7-jähriges Bestehen und lud daher zu teils-eskalativen Umtrunk in den Club Zwölfzehn ein. Nachdem der Bierfluss recht schnell in das unermessliche schwappte, war die Stimmung spätestens mit dem live Auftritt der Berliner Band ASTROBOY am kochen! Doch dem nicht genug! Im Anschluss wurden die Party Glocken geläutet und SUPERIOR und GAST sorgten für die endgültige Eskalation. Am Ende kann man nur ein großes Dankeschön an alle schönen Menschen aussprechen, die mit uns an diesem Tage bis in die Puppen zelebriert haben.
