Jos jedan od klasicnih instrumentalnih surf bendova dolazi iz Juzne Californije. Zvuk THE LIVELY ONES su oblikovali zestoki reverbi Fender gitara i "Cool" sax solo deonice. U periodu 63'/64' za etiketu Del-Fi su izdali pet studijskih albuma na kojima se uglavnom bave obradama poznatih surf (Dick Dale, Link Wray) i r'n'b tema.Imali su par regionalnih hitova 1963.

THE TRASHMEN - Tube City! The Best of the Trashmen



Kultni garage-surf bend THE TRASHMEN nastao je 1962 u Minneapolis-u, Minnesota. Legendarnim singlom "Surfin' Bird" iz 1963. dosli su na vrhove top lista i obezbedili mesto u Rock'n'Roll Panteonu. "Surfin' Bird" je postala neka vrsta Punk himne (kao i Louie Louie) koju su kasnije izvodili razni garazni i punk bendovi, a najpoznatije verzije su one od The Cramps i Ramones-a. B strana singla "King of the Surf" takodje dobija kultni status, kao i njihov jedini Lp "Surfin' Bird" iz 1964. Uspeh je postigao i drugi singl "Bird Dance Beat/A-Bone" koji je postao mega hit u Brazilu! Sve to se moze cuti na vrlo dobroj kompilaciji "Tube City!"


JERRY COLE and His Spacemen - Surf Age [1964]



While most of Cole's albums were cranked out at the astounding pace of up to two or three per day, Surf Age, his second Capitol album, was by comparison a production of epic proportions. Cole and his hand-picked, all-star crew of LA session cats labored to create a surf album unlike any other, an endlessly inventive amalgam of surf and '60s pop. "We spent time on this album," says Cole, "this album we did in six sessions!"
The original liner notes say it most eloquently: "They listen to the music of Jerry Cole and his Spacemen will tell you that theirs is the sound of the surf Age! Their beat is as dynamic as tomorrow's crashing waves, their instrumental blend is as fresh and modern as tomorrow night's dance party surfing, their tunes are definitely for swingin 'moderns.
" Dig!





THE MARKETTS - Out Of Limits! [1964]

THE MARKETTS

Jos jedan u nizu uspesnih studijskih projekata bili su i THE MARKETTS. Sastavljeni od Los Andjeleskih session muzicara pod dirigentskom palicom producenta Joe Saracena izbacuju jedan od poslednjih velikih surf hitova "Out of Limits"[1964] koji je inspirisan temom iz "Zone Sumraka". Istoimeni lp inspirisan SF i Space temama, predstavlja neku vrstu prvog konceptualnog surf albuma.




THE HONDELLS - Go Little Honda / The Hondells [1964]


THE HONDELLS nisu bili bend vec jedan od studijskih projekata producenta i aranzera Gary Usher-a kroz koji su prosli neki od vrhunskih surf gitarista tog vremena kao sto su Davie Allan, Richie Podolor i Glen Campbell [kasnije u legendarnom garaznom bendu The Misunderstood].
Veliki uspeh su postigli singlom "Litlle Honda"[1964] koji je napisao Brian Wilson iz Beach Boys-a i koji je posluzio kao reklama za Hondine motore. Usledio je i Lp Go Little Honda koji vazi za jedan od najboljih Hot Rod albuma.

THE ASTRONAUTS - Surfin' With / Competition Coupe / Movin'

THE ASTRONAUTS

Za razliku od vecine surf bendova koji su poticali iz Kalifornije THE ASTRONAUTS dolaze sa Americkog srednjeg zapada iz drzave Colorado. Iako su imali samo jedan hit "Baja" i skromnu regionalnu popularnost, svojim prefinjenim surf instrumentalima stekli su kultni status medju poklonicima ovog zanra.

Surfin' with the Astronauts [1963]



Prvi album Surfin' with the Astronauts [1963] donosi obrade klasicnih surf tema Surfin' U.S.A., Misirlou, Pipeline, Let's Go Trippin', ali i originalne instumentale Movin', Surfer's Stomp, Kuk, Batman i Baja.
Na narednom lp-u Competition Coupe [1964] pored pretezno Hot Rod pesmica, nalazi se jedan od njihovih poznatijih instrumentala "The Hearse" koji se moze cuti i na repertoaru mnogih savremenih garage-surf bendova.
Medju njihovim sledbenicima nalaze se (rani) Boss Martians, The Untamed Youth i The Fathoms.


Za svaku preporuku je i odlicna kompilacija "Movin" na kojoj su sabrani svi najbolji instrumentali koje su THE ASTRONAUTS snimili tokom 60-tih.
