The Hypnic Jerks are a band of doctors. In their off time, they enjoy surfing and playing classic Nintendo games. Deciding to meld the two with their combined musical ability, these doctors created the surf rock band, Hypnic Jerks.

The music was intended to be played in the waiting room at their offices, but after it received an overwhelmingly negative response, the band decided it must be cool, so they shopped their demo around to the independent label circuit.

After an intense bidding war, the Mobile Lounge landed the Jerks for an undisclosed sum. Their demos are available here.
