“The surfing bug bit Kilian 'SanchoPansen' Gilberg way back in the 90s, right before the 'Pulp Fiction' revival. One of the first bands that caught his attention were Man or Astroman? and as he already played guitar, he was simply stoked by 'that sound'. After starting to collect every bit of surf music he could gather in south Germany, he soon started his own surf project called Spy vs. Spy, playing mainly spy based themes.

Several years later he also formed the surf band The Hicadoolas, focusing mainly on non-instro surf stuff (no kidding). Being a corksniffing reverb junkie, he held a seminar at the Surfer Joe Festival in 2015, presenting tons of cool reverb pedals and tanks.”
