The Krontjong Devils (NL)
Previously they‘ve played at Sunburn Surf Fest 2023.
Straight from ‘Surf City Groningen’, a name borrowed from a broadcast of the late TV program Lola Da Musica, the Krontjong Devils have been producing some marvellous instrumental surf music over the years. All following the recipe: sun, sea, Southern California and Dick Dale.
In 1994, those fresh surf sounds were pressed on real black vinyl for the first time. “Moovin’ with the Krontjong Devils” on Kogar Records has become a collector’s item. And instrumental music knows no boundaries: the Californian quality label Hillsdale Records released an EP by the Devils in the nineties.
In 2022 the LP “Music From The Stars, Volume 1 (a journey through space and time)” was released on the German Topsy-Turvy Label. This new record by the Krontjong Devils is full of proven 70s/80s hits as instrumental surf tunes. Who would have ever expected Donna Summer’s “I Feel Love”, Kim Wilde’s “Cambodia” or Julio Iglesias’s “Quiero” on the Krontjong Devils’ repertoire?
As it turns out, there's no pigeonholing the K-Devils!
