The Lively Ones - Surf Rider c/w Surfer's Lamentdotdotdotdotdot
artworkThis is the single that the Lively Ones are best known for. It's a stunning arrangement of the Nokie Edwards tune that the Ventures called "Spudnik," and is the short single edit of the track that so spectacularly runs under the ending credits of Pulp Fiction.
Picks: Surf Rider, Surfers Lament

Surf Rider dotdotdotdotdot
Surf (Instrumental)

This is what happens when a real surf band covers a Nokie Edwards (Ventures) tune that had no relation to surf as written. In fact, it started life as a Potato concept song called "Spudnik." It is the short fade-out length version, and in mono.

Surfers Lament dotdotdotdot
Surf (Instrumental)

A "Paradise Cove" inspired track with a sadness and beauty all it's own.
