Although he's penned music for TV and movies, guitarist/composer Miles Corbin is best known for being the leader of surf rockers Aqua Velvets. Taking their cue from such '60s surf trailblazers Dick Dale and the Ventures, Aqua Velvets (which includes members Hank Maninger [second guitar], Michael Lindner [bass/keys/accordion], and Donn Spindt [drums], in addition to Corbin) are completely an instrumental band. 1992 saw the release of their self-titled debut release, which was largely a low-budget affair (recorded in the band's own home basement recording studio, with Corbin's guitar overdubs recorded in the back of a car!). Shortly after the initial pressing on their own label sold out, more releases followed -- 1995's Surfmania, 1996's Nomad, and 1997's Guitar Noir. In 2000, Corbin issued his very first solo release, Sounds From the Tiki Hut. ~ Greg PratoPortions of Content Provided by Rovi Corporation.
