Water Under the Bridge Records continues on their historical voyage to document the musical stylings of San Pedro’s not so distant past with this collection of tunes from San Pedro & Palos Verdes go-to house party pioneers of the early ‘80s: The Dialtones.

The Dialtones used various ingredients (punk, surf, rockabilly) to help stir these parties into a juvenile frenzy. Dare to bring back the memories of your youth with these 12 tunes that may or may not be par for the course these days? You decide. Get back on the party wave, bro.


“In the early ‘80s, the Dialtones kind of set the precedence in Pedro as far as being “the party band.” It seemed like the Dialtones were playing every weekend. Good party band, they fit in at the right time too, with their style of music.” — Steve Quick (Throbbing Members)

“They were the surf guitar party band for all the Pedro parties and “the Pedro Boys.” — Mike Brady

“They were the local boys. They grew up here (in San Pedro). They were surfers and skateboarders. We (the Wigs!) instantly became friends after hearing them and they us.” — Cindy Vodo (The Wigs!)
