Surprisingly cool sounding considering the horrible visuals... Wink

Also, one get an up close view on how to use the trem arm for the guitar intro.

Looks and sounds like they were miming to the original recording. And Merrell Fankhauser was not in the original band, he's from The Impacts. Check out the Impacts video, some cool vintage stuff there.

Yeah, I haven't listened to the original recording for a while but I'm pretty sure it's the original Revels version played back.

After watching the video, I was going "my eyes - they're burning!".
But the audio was nice.

Was it the macrame' bathing suit or the Hawaiian shirts?

Or the dance moves? Man, that was all weird to look at.

I think almost everything in the video was disturbing except the music Laughing

I dug the macrame swimsuit. Embarassed

And the song too, of course. It did sound like the original Revels version to me.

Ran,
I thought you told me that was the look for the Sand Devils for the next tiki party?

anyone, is that Dave Murray from Iron Maiden on Rhythm Guitar?

yeah the Macramae bathing suit is dated, but it reminds me of my childhood in Northen California.

Yes, that indeed is the new look for the Sand Devils.
I also designed a special new look for The Surfites, Reluctant Aquanauts and The 'Verb:
Everyone wears Hawaiian shirts that have prints of little Hawaiian shirts on them, and each little print of Hawaiian shirt has prints of Woodies (cars) on it. Pants must not match. Footwear - some flipflops, some Birkenstocks. Also, some hats are mandatory - 1 straw hat, 1 baseball cap, 1 beret (worn backwords).
Also, covers of Wipeout, Let's Go Trippin', Rock Around The Clock are mandatory.

I'm for hire as band image consultant. Just go to a LR gig and see the results.

Ran,
That ain't no Lava Rats "LR" is it? We're some of the best dressed, ugliest boys in the scene!

~B~

even thou the supertones version is not as good as the revels version it's still a kick in the pants, plus you get to see me surf some good waves in p.r.

No no no no...it's not you at all. Hey, I like you guys.

Even if we DO cover Church Key...

but hey, it's about 3 times the tempo of the original, so I guess that makes it okay.

Either way, I don't know that I've ever seen so much "white pants" in a band since Satan's Pilgrims. But at least SP look like badasses onstage.

Also, dig the completely out-of-rhythm and uncoordinated "kicks" from the bassist in the last verse. Reallllly something.
