  • 1960s bands

    I thought I knew every band from the early sixties but just discoved the Spotniks. Full bonus points for doing covers of Ghost Riders in the Sky and Hava Nagila, as well as looking like the 60s Surf/Space rock version of Devo.

    Re: 1960s bands

    Good day sir. For your early sixties music I think more along the lines of Martha and the Vandellas, Frankie Lyman, etc. Of course the "Chairman of the Board" Frank Sinatra. However, you sir certainly earn extra bonus posting points for mentioning "Ghost Riders" and "Hava Nagila" in the same paragraph. Not to mention Devo! All the best, Mike

      Their sound is quite similar to that of The Ventures. Which, who was first?

        Were you aware that Devo (or an incarnation called The Wipeouters) had surf/space/punk song stylings? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KZe_5vJROI4

            Getting back to the original genere... (sorta)

            The Finns can do some awesome Surf Guitar: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lqxlrOXgYkk



            And, it would seem the Russians can too... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Kbwy7qxluOQ

            Laika and the Cosmonauts lead met to some Man or Astroman? vids, (who I knew about) and that lead to the Barbie Molesters (!) (who I didn't) and then I discovered Messer Chups...

            Must... Leave... YouTube....

                I don't care what they sound like. That's a fantastic album cover!

                    Jimmy Nicol, the drummer who was Ringo Starr's stand-in for a few weeks on tour in 1964 when Ringo was ill, later took over the drum chair in The Spotniks.
