Surfer Blood's Thomas Fekete Proves That This Band Is Not a Bunch of "Dicks"

It's been more than a minute since we heard from West Palm's Surfer Blood. And we have to admit, we missed them. It's true. Once their prank calls to the New Times stopped, it's like the phones haven't rung since.

Surfer Blood and Weird Wives guitarist Thomas Fekete got in touch with us and opened up about nearly everything going on with the band and in his own life. This includes getting screwed over on their way up, and enjoying the perks of success, including working with Pixies' producer Gil Norton. Fekete moved to New York, but says he always finds time to practice with his Florida bandmates. If nothing else proves SB isn't a bunch of dicks, it'll be this interview.
