The Denels - Here Come The Hodads c/w Massacre Stompdotdotdot
artworkThis 1963 single sounds like it is from the same sessions that produced The Mar-Kets Surfing Scene. Joe Saraceno produced it, which tells all.
Picks: Massacre Stomp

Track by Track Review


Here Come The Hodads dotdotdot
Surf (Instrumental)

Frat rompin' in a "Cinnamon Cinder "groove with great piano and a simple riff that would also be the basis of the Rolling Stones' "I'm All Right" a couple of years later. This is virtually the same as The Mar-Kets track from the Surfing Scene LP, but it's 20 seconds longer.

Surf (Instrumental)

A female voice sings a chorus against a fairly gutty backtrack for the first part of the song, before moving into boring light pop rock with a pompous edge. Occasionally interesting, like many of Joe Saraceno's productions.
