The Routers and the Marketts still keep on rockin'

Just when you thought they were through, the Marketts just released a new album and the Routers are getting ready to release their second album of the year, entitled "Live At The Hollywood Bowl - The Routers" recorded live in 1963, the quality of the sound isn't that great but then they didn't have the technology that we have today. 

Both bands were formed by Mike Gordon and Gordon wrote the Marketts first hit, "Surfer's Stomp" which sold half a million copies.  Gordon then wrote "Out Of Limits" which sold over a million copies and earned him his 2nd BMI Award for instrumental of the year.

The Routers also had a smash hit with the hand-clapping instrumental called, "Let's Go" which can still be heard at sports events and used in many movies and television shows.  The Marketts "Out of Limits" was used in Pulp Fiction and many other movies.
