He has traveled internationally, creating and exhibiting work in the form of paintings, films and photography, and has recorded and toured with his now-defunct “pop rock group,” Japanese Motors – a band since replaced by his current group, Tomorrows Tulips, referred to as “lo-fi, minimal, experimental psychedelia” by L.A. Record Magazine. In 2011, after a year spent shaping his own boards, Alex founded his own surfboard label, Brown Microwave Television. He currently continues to create and ride his self-made surfboards, as well as experiment with “outdated or often disregarded” designs.
"Gentle Thursday" by Music Emporium, "The Butcher" by Leonard Cohen and the album Made in the USA by Sonic Youth. I also love Kim Deal, and the Five Summer Stories soundtrack from Honk. Beat Happening is also groovy.
