The Deadly Ones !

From the first wave of surf, this 1964 oddball remains one of the best examples of how surf music can work as Halloween party music. It needs help, of course, and that help came in the form of howls, screams, and evil voices saying any number of strange things.
« This is a grand example of gimmick studio projects of the sixties. Unlike the "Rat Fink" mung, this has moments of brilliant instrumental surf with an edge and a unique flavor. Some of the originals here were written by (and reportedly performed by) Joe South ("Polk Salad Annie"). Most notable is "The Lone Surfer," melodically interesting enough to have been adopted as a regular part of the Berzerkers' set for the last decade. »

The surf`s good but "Calling all cows" is better. And as for the illustration, "I married a monster from outer space" is one of my favorite films of all time. I really must add it to my profile on the blog!
