VINE VOICEon 9 December 2008
Don't be fooled by the suits and the fresh-faced smiles. The Trashmen may have arrived late for the surf party, but this album contains some of the most exciting music in the genre. The title track is their classic contribution to rock music, so revved-up, so d-u-m-b, that The Ramones covered it. There are a few well-worn surf standards here but everything on the disc stands up with the possible exception of 'Bird Bath', an attempt to recreate their masterpiece in an alternative guise. The Latin-flavoured 'Malaguena' is a highlight, as is the cool 'Tube City', but almost all of the music is exhilarating.

Bird is the word on the streets! You have got to buy this baby! Surfs up!Surfin' Bird is the best song, but there are many good there like Malaguena is pure surf, Bird Bath is a wierd one and Bird Dance Beat (demo version) is fun. There's is also a demo version of Surfin' Bird which is fun to hear how the first take was. So, everybody, do the bird dance.

Surfin' Bird was on the charts the week the Beatles debuted and both them and the Kingsmen were the last of the American groups to play American rock'n'roll before all the rules changed.Both these groups had in common with the Beatles the song Money.
However only 2 singles made it to the U K but the Trashmen became just as legendary and could even be seen as the first garage rockers.
But it must have sounded great in a court room when both Rivingtons singles were demonstrated to the judge along with the Trashmen's Surfin' Bird as a way to show plagiarism.The result of the case is that the Rivingtons' names had to be added in the credits and one other song had to credit them as well!

Brilliant LP served up to me by longstanding Sister Ray Records in Soho, London.

Choice cut is obviously 'The Surfin Bird' which regularly appears on Family Guy!! You know what i mean if you watch this show!

Always get bums moving on the dancefloor
