Watch the Sci-Fi Surf online guitar lesson by Jason Loughlin from Essentials: Surf Guitar

This study takes a look at the standout surf rock bands of the 90's. Bands like Man or Astro-man? and Hawaii Samurai took the 60's surf sound and combined it with a new wave punk sound of the 80's. Man or Astro-man? has to be my favorite of this subgenre. They always incorporated sci-fi themes, sound clips from sci-fi movies and TV shows, and unorthodox instruments like the Theremin. This study loosely combines the style of Man or Astro-man? and the punk influence on surf.
