Surf's Up

April 21, 1996|Steve Hochman

While finishing up a new album that's expected to be released this summer, Pearl Jam will also record an extra track to be donated to an album benefiting the Surf Rider Foundation, a Southern California organization dedicated to cleaning polluted oceans and beaches. Eddie Vedder has long been an avid surfer and last year donated $50,000 to the foundation following a San Diego concert.

The Pearl Jam track will round out a lineup on "Mom: Music for Our Mother Ocean" that also includes original tracks from the Beastie Boys, Porno for Pyros, Primus, Everclear and Jewel, as well as such remakes as Silverchair doing the Trashmen's "Surfin' Bird," Pennywise doing the Beach Boys' "Surfin' U.S.A." and guitarist Gary Hoey teaming with pro surfer Donovan Frankenreiter on "Wipe Out." Also featured are a Helmet version of Bjork's "Armyof Me" and Brian Setzer doing the old Bill Doggett tune "Honky Tonk."

The album is being compiled by Dave Kaplan and will be released by his San Diego-based Surfdog Records through Interscope in June.
