By late 1969, Phillips Recording Studios in the UK offered the band a six-month tour of Europe and a recording contract. By 1970, the band, whose members where then part time musicians, decided to call it quits. [wiki]
Huevos Rancheros were 90’s Canadian surfin’/garage punk band that played an instrumental blend of rockabilly, surf, grunge and punk music. They recorded four Lp’s and bunch of 45’s I’ve already posted on my old blog. This Surfadelic collection is kinda “Best Of” I made for your and mine listening pleasure. 30 trax of killer instro garage punk action. Cool originals and great covers of Link Wray, Dick Dale, Davie Allan & The Arrows, The Ventures… Say what? HAPPY NEW YEAR & Do the Dig!!!
The Sandells, also known as The Sandals, were 60’s surf rock band most famous for scoring the surfing documentary “The Endless Summer”. This is their debut 1964. Lp an all-instro surf/hot rod album, same stuff as “The Endless Summer” ’66 lp but with different cover art, alright! This slab was recorded at time when motorcycles themes were hip and The Astronauts recorded “Competition Coupe”, Gary Usher produced The Kickstands’ “Black Boots and Bikes”, Jerry Cole with The Hornets recorded “Motorcycles U.S.A.” and Brian Wilson penned Little Honda that became a national top 10 hit for The Hondells in late 1964. Stereophonic Vinyl rip, Dig!

Here you gotta deal with classic 60’s surf/hot rod bands as The Atlantics, Jim Messina & The Jesters, The Buddies, Hal Blaine & The Young Cougars, The Hondells, Jerry Cole And His Spacemen, Dick Dale & His Deltones, Aki Aleong And The Nobles, Takeshi Terauchi & His Blue Jeans, The Super Stocks, The Ventures, The Tornados, The Avengers VI, Davie Allan & The Arrows and some lounge/score acts like The Dave Myers Effect, Jimmie Haskell, Harry Beatinger Formation, Hollywood Persuaders, Luis Enriquez & His Electronic Men, The Eliminators and The Back-Wash Rhythm Band [actually Davie Allan with other studio musicians]. Interesting is there are some early 70’s recordings by Takeshi Terauchi from his ”Manatsu No Umi Wo Buttobase!!” 1972′ LP and Harry Beatinger Formation ’73 lp and they fits very well with 60’s tunes. Most of this stuff I’ve alredy posted here and on my old blog so some of you are familiar with it but others ain’t. So surfers, I wanna know what ya think about it alright?!
