The Mermen - Drums A Go-Godotdotdotdotdot
artworkThis live take of the Mermen doing the Hollywood Persuaders hit must be heard. The original is very beat oriented, and in this band's hands, it becomes a mandatory tribal ritual.

Drums A Go-Go dotdotdotdotdot
Surf (Instrumental)

This is an inspired performance of the Hollywood Persuaders' ultra cool "Drums A Go-Go." Paul Buff wrote it with Sandy Nelson to capitalize on the burgeoning discotheque/go-go scene. At the hands of the Mermen, it's a tribal riff rocker that breeds life into all that come near. Jim Thomas' impeccable guitar, Martyn Jones amazing drums, and Jennifer Burnes' thundering bass give it intensity and jungle coolness. Totally bitchin'!
