Best Band That Can't Drink Legally

Jensen Serf Company

The boys of Jensen Serf Co. will have to wait a good long while before they can publicly indulge in the ol’ alcamahol, but Benjamin Saylor and Peter Kokkinakos aren’t the types that need to build courage via booze. Their assault of salt-licked garage rock only gets better as the volume increases, and their live shows are tinnitus-inducing pleasure sessions. They’ve got new vinyl on its way to being pressed and will undoubtedly turn heads if they end up touring. They may be young but have still managed to prove themselves stellar ambassadors of Bay area music.

Watch: CL's David Warner talks to Benjamin Saylor and Peter Kokkinakos of Jensen Serf, who confirm that they are indeed The Best Band That Can't Drink Legally. Recorded during the Best of the Bay awards reception Sept. 19 at Creative Loafing.
