SURF CREATURE - Various Artists

After the Bruce Brown film titled "Surf Crazy" was screened in Santa Monica, California in 1960, thousands of teenagers got surfboards and flocked to the beaches to 'shoot the curl'. Some of them were also musicians, freshly stoked up on instrumental hits of the recent past like "Walk Don't Run" by The Ventures, "Woo Hoo" by The Rock-A-Teens; "Torquay" by The Fireballs; and countless others. With further inspiration from the regional sounds of the Mexican Vaqueros, flamenco guitarists, & the Hawaiian culture, Surf Music, as we know it today, was born. This LP collects some of the rarest & earliest surf recordings of Southern California, created by the groups who helped define a sound that lives on today! Hear: AKI ALEONG & THE NOBELS- Body Surf; THE PENETRATIONS- Fakin' Out; THE CENTURIES- Outer Limits; THE SILVERTONES- Bathsheba; ZORBA & THE GREEKS- Shockwave; MANUEL & THE RENEGADES- Woody Wagon; THE VELVETONES- Doheney Run, and Static; THE TRAUNTS- Sunset Surf; THE INTREPIDES- Golash; DANNY STEEL- Chinese Twist; THE STARFIRES- Space Needle; THE NEVEGANS- Russian Roulette; and THE VULCAINES- Cozimotto, not available on any CD.
