Put together punk rock with surf revival, and whuddya get? The Surf Punks! Led by Dennis Dragon, this '80s outfit combined SoCal breeziness with punk brashness, turning patches of sand into mosh pits up and down the coasts.
Combining the frivolity of early Beach Boys stuff with the agressiveness of late '80s California skate punk (a la the Dickies, Redd Kross) and a bit of B-52's and Devo type wackiness.
An almost all remixed/dif. versions best-of collection from their late-'80s releases for Restless and Enigma - catch the $#@¤ wave! Surf Punks did indeed roll a fat party bomb on this 1988 release! Loud, dumb and proud. "Somebody Ripped My Stick" is worth the price of admission by itself.
Ostensibly part of a Restless Records live series, Party Bomb resembles a live recording only in that it’s made up almost entirely of material from the band’s previous three studio albums. Essentially, these are re-recordings. There’s no crowd noise or stage banter to be heard, so if anything here is really live, it’s live in the studio. The title only confirms how Surf Punks had gone from being a legitimate underground band to a novelty act, from a band that made jokes to a band that was a joke. Nonetheless, the material on display makes Party Bomb enjoyable, and a decent primer on the band.
Time for a gnarly ride dudes, you got your surf instructor plus lifeguard to take care of you so no worries, let's go surfing!
