Surf Sunday

Calvin Cool and his band The Surf Knobs (really) from 1963 with El Tecolote, a very cool, string bending instrumental. You can say that about much surf music can’t you? Keen eared listeners may recognise this as the intro music to one of Andrew Weatherall’s radio shows- the old Double Gone Radio over at Rotters Golf Club I think. RGC are currently saying The Aspodells debut lp will be out on January 28th. So, why does the Japanese market get it two months earlier?

El Tecolote
