This compilation came about through drunken chats with Steve and Henry from Lovvers about surf music, as they had just started doing The Binmen, their surf covers band.
It ended up with Suplex and the Binmen/Lovvers boys asking our friends to contribute, and we got in some corkers.
Lovvers kick off with their own take on The Trashmens ‘King of the Surf’, followed closely by Sauna Youths re-interpretation of Surf Trios ‘Fun in the Summer’. Ruari of Golden Grrrls supplied 2 instrumentals influenced by The Nautiloids 7″ under the name The Special Kays. Fair Ohs kick out the only non-cover on the tape with a little instrumental ditty that flips the surf bird at PCSO’s in the Surf Community. Sexbeet smash through their version of the Beach Boys classic ‘I Get Around’ and French Kissing get the girls going crazy to their cover of ‘Beach Ball’ by The City Surfers. Finishing it off nicely is The Binmen, with Dick Dale and Trashmen covers that kicked off the whole sordid idea!
