The Surfin' Turnips are a West Country renaissance folk-punk group who aim to spread the Word Of The West to the lost souls in need of apple salvation. Specialising in scrumpy, sea songs and West Country pride songs, they have released three West Country LPs.
The Surfin' Turnips The Surfin' Turnips were originally just yer run-of-the-mill underground band who, after releasing a few unremarkable albums on a Japanese label, rested fer a couple of years. During this time Titch spent a couple of weeks up on Dartymoor in his tent fasting and listening to the voice of apple righteousness. He returned to civilisation demanding that the band do something spiritual. As we researched songs for a reunion, it was noticed that no-one could find any Newfoundland rock bands who sing in their West Country-esque dialect - and then they realised the same applied to themselves - so they decided to sort it out straight away.
The Surfin' Turnips consist of Jamer Turnip on guitars, Matt Pants on drums, Titch Wilson on bass and Ian O'Star on accordion. The band hail from Cornwall, Devon and Somerset; but have strong associations with the town of Chipping Sodbury where they met while working, and the areas around Bristol where they currently live.
