Rich Clayton and the Rumbles - Wail It c/w Flip Sidedotdotdot
Rich Clayton and the Rumbles were from Council Bluffs, Iowa. Midwest band with a significant rep in there area, which spread across much of the upper Midwest. They held sway over their minions from the early sixties right through the garage psych invasion revolution, becoming more a frat band in later years.
Picks: Wail It, Flip Side

Track by Track Review


Wail It dotdotdotdot
Surf (Instrumental)

This 1964 track is pristine, and features damped lead lines. It's melodic, catchy, and chunky. The Rumbles hailed from Council Bluffs, Iowa. Totally bitchin trad surf.

Flip Side dotdotdotdot
Surf (Instrumental)

The Rumbles were a Council Bluffs band founded in 1962. "Flip Side" is the obvious titled flip side of their "Wail It" single. It features a damped lead which delivers an infectious melody over a round and rolling backtrack. Right from the whammied opening chord, this fine track captures your heart. Great landlocked surf.
