This looks wonderful.  Ivan Pongracic is, of course, the lead guitarist of The Madeira, the world’s greatest surf band.  The Blair-Pongracic Band is one of his side projects.  An important one to be sure.

The best surf band in the world, The Madeira, is releasing their first live album, SONIC CATACLYSM, this week.  It’s, in part, a celebration of the band’s tenth anniversary.

The brainchild behind the band, Ivan Pongracic, an economist by day, is also a fellow progger.  Though Dick Dale informs the music than any other person, there’s certainly a lot of Alex Lifeson and Steve Hackett thrown in as well.

To celebrate their tenth anniversary, The Madeira will be playing a special show in Indianapolis on June 14.
