Twisted country, blues and surf band from Peterborough, England.

Wielding old guitars, harmonicas and lap steels screaming through 50's amplifiers to the backdrop of musical saws and unmusical washboards, deep twang and rumbling drums The Organ magazine has described The Surgens as “A kind of [a=White Stripes, The] for [a=Captain Beefheart] fans who like their country blues a little twisted and scuffed around the edges” and Sleazegrinder have likened the band to “the house band on that Mississippi steamer drinking on the Devils tab"

Although The Surgens clearly draw their influences from artists as diverse as [a=Hank Williams], [a=Gene Vincent], [a=Dick Dale], [a=Howlin' Wolf] as well as the likes of [a=Pixies] and [a=Tom Waits] they have managed to create a sound that the BBC's Mark Lamarr has described as “Absolutely magnificent” and “Truly Unique”.

In a short space The Surgens have been busy building a loyal following and have supported some great artists such as [a=Jawbone], The Dead Brothers, [a=Billy Childish], [a=Soledad Brothers, The], and [a=David Viner] to name a few and have been one of the bands at the forefront of the exciting alternative blues and country scene that has been emergent in the UK and Europe.
