The Monks - Black Monk Timedotdotdot
The Monks were pretty edgy for a US band of servicemen stationed in Germany. The recording is pretty advanced for 1966, especially in Europe. It's not surf, of course, but it is a great track.

Space (Instrumental)

Inspired by "Telstar," but there is where the comparison ends. Mechanized syncopated insanity over a repetitious chunka chunka rhythm track, a count down, a guitar break, and more chunka chunka. It all ends going up and up and up the scale to the climax.
