Surfer Blood released their debut single ‘Swim’ in 2009. Their first album ‘Astro Coast’ followed in 2010, before ‘Pythons’ in 2013 and ‘1000 Palms’ in 2015. The late Fekete played on all three albums, before releasing solo cassette-only album ‘Burner’ in December 2015.

His widow Jess wrote in a tribute after his death: “I am full of comfort knowing that Thomas is now free and I long for the day that I get to be with him again… Thomas John Fekete, I love you and live for you. Nothing will make me more proud than being able to call myself your wife. Now, my beautiful angel, go find Bowie and jam.”
