The band consist of:
Sweet Cheeks Söderhielm
Hot Rod Anderson
Pororoca!, the name of the upcoming album, translates to ”the great destructive noise” in Tupi, and is the name of the longest wave on Earth on the Amazon river. POROROCA! is also the new album from Sonic Surf City!
After 10 years of cowabungas, shoot-the-curls, beach bopping, and fun-in-the- sun, Sonic Surf City took a break and their frontman Woodie Hermanson (also Ceilidh Productions and Trampolene Records) moved to San Diego, California, to purse his career as a scientist. Meanwhile, the bikinisurftrashpop tunes from the band took a life of their own, and during the last 10 years, compilations have been released in Europe and Asia with an unexpected success, songs have been covered by bands from Spain, Indonesia to Japan, their old vinyl records are selling for ridiculous amounts on web auctions, and a completely new surfasonic fanbase has emerged, especially in Europe and Japan.
During 2009-10, the band – Woodie Hermanson, Hot Rod Anderson, Tee-Tee Thomsen and the new guitarist Sweet Cheeks Söderhielm, got together again, Woodie Hermanson wrote a bunch of new songs, and they found themselves at home at Papa Bear’s Killer Cobra Records.
The new album POROROCA! Was recorded by Peter “PP” Samuelsson at PPP Recordings the fabulous summer of 2010 and contains 15 brand new (put in your favorite surf adjectives here) songs… Starting with a tour in Germany, Switzerland, and Holland in November to be continued with a magnificent release party in Stockholm in the end of November in a yet to be revealed location.
