Surfers Choice...Revolution Surf! Show # 340


Dick Dale is known as “The King of Surf Guitar” for a reason. In the early 60s, Dick Dale incorporated non-Western based scales into his music drawing on an Eastern cultural influence that would be embedded into many of his well known songs. Dale’s desire for a particular sound resulted in a number of things. One, was his use of guitar reverb that resulted in a “wet” guitar sound that would become a definitive sound in Surf music. Two, he pushed the limits of his equipment. Often blowing up guitar amplifiers for his hunger of loud sounds, Leo Fender would work with Dale to redefine not only guitar, and amplifiers, but also volume which until Dale came around wasn’t particularly that loud. Another interesting fact is that Dale is known for stringing his guitar in reverse since he is left handed. He often plays the chords upside down and backwards. Even when he has a left handed guitar in his possession it is stringed upside down.

Dick Dale quickly attracted attention locally for his wild live shows, drawing thousands of fans weekly for his live shows, which were usually at the Rendezvous Ballroom in California. With the Del-Tones as his backing band, Dick Dale released Surfers’ Choice in 1962. Recorded live at the Rendezvous Ballroom in Balboa Beach, California, with some studio overdubs, the twelve track album helped to define the Surf music genre. With songs such as “Let’s Go Trippin’” which is often called the first Surf Rock instrumental recording, it helped to bring the concept of Surf music to parts of America. It should also be noted that “Let’s Go Trippin’” was initially released as a single in 1961 on Deltone Records, where it eventually reached # 60 on the national charts and even higher on local charts. Two more singles followed on Deltone “Jungle Fever” and “Surf Beat”. Following the release of Surfers' Choice, which was released on Deltone (Dick Dale’s own label) he acquired a recording contract with Capitol Records, which garnered him further distribution nationally. Word spread and Dick Dale began appearing on television shows and in films. In 1962, Dick Dale and His Del-Tones released “Misirlou”, which went to # 1 in Los Angeles. The song which is now his signature is a highly influential song and originates from a Folk song that has been played in numerous different languages and music origins such as, Greek Rebetiko, Middle Eastern Belly Dancing, and Jewish Klezmer.

Dick Dale had this to say of the song in the Los Angeles Times in February 1981:

“I still remember the first night we played it ("Misirlou"). I changed the tempo, and just started cranking on that mother. And...it was eerie. The people came rising up off the floor, and they were chanting and stomping. I guess that was the beginning of the surfer's stomp.”


Dick Dale and His Del-Tones recorded King of Surf Guitar for Capitol Records, it was released in 1963. The album featured covers and originals and was named after Dale’s stage name “The King of Surf Guitar”. There are even vocals on some of the tracks by Dale (although there has been vocals on album every Dale album), the album features stand out tracks such as “King of Surf Guitar”, “Have Nagila”, and a cover of “(Ghost) Riders in the Sky”. Dick Dale’s next album on Capitol would be the album known as Checkered Flag. Released in 1963 this is the first album that Dick Dale recorded in the “Hot Rod” style of Surf music. At the time racing, cars, and surfing was deeply embedded in American culture. Many of the songs on the album featured themes relating to car racing and hot rods. Several of the songs actually feature car noises in them. The album was also a shift in Dale’s style. While his first two albums with The Deltones were known as Surf music, his “Hot Rod” Surf music differed with slightly different beats mixed in with elements of his earlier Surf style of music. Checkered Flag’s follow up was Mr. Eliminator in 1964. This album continued the theme of hot-rod’s and cars, but also showed off Dale’s Eastern music influence on the track “The Victor”. Following the release of Mr. Eliminator, Dale would record one more album with His Del-Tones backing him 1964’s Summer Surf.


Summer Surf is often cited as a return to Dick Dale’s early Surf style of music, but it also featured many new elemental features that were not as prominent on early Dick Dale recordings. The album has more of a production based nature, often sounding glossier than previous Dale recordings, reflecting a Phil Spector and Brian Wilson based production style. There are also numerous experimentations stemming from a variety of multi-cultural musical styles. “Spanish Kiss” exercises a Spanish guitar style of music, “The Star (of David)” reflects a Hebrew musical nature, the Gospel stylings on “Glory Wave” and Dale’s own Trumpet lead song “Never On A Sunday” all add to the experimental side of Summer Surf. The song “Banzai Wash Out” is a track amongst the songs found on this album, with its traditional Dick Dale guitar leads, keyboards and vocal harmonies it is undeniably a stand out track found here along with a few others. “Tidal Wave” incorporates an almost Waltz-like sound into Surf, and “Surfin’ Rebel”, and the title track “Summer Surf” all feature elements of classic Dick Dale Surf Rock with horn sections and fascinating guitar leads.

Dick Dale continued to perform live, in 1964 the British Invasion began to take over the charts and America. While a live album was released by Capitol in 1965, Rock out with Dick Dale and his Del-Tones: Live at Ciro's, Dale was dropped from Capitol Records. He remained popular, but in 1966 he was diagnosed with rectal cancer forcing him to temporarily retire from music. Dick Dale beat the cancer and began pursuing other interests, becoming an environmental activist. Dick Dale came back to music in 1986 by recording a benefit single for the UC-Irvine’s Medical Center Burn Unit, he also recorded an album Tigers Loose, which was released in 1986. Dale was also in the beach movie Back To The Beach. While Dale returned to music, his return would take off to greater proportions when his song “Misirlou” was featured in the 1994 movie Pulp Fiction by Quinten Tarentino. Being used as the movies title track, Dick Dale was instantly exposed to a new and wider audience. Most recently Dick Dale’s music has been featured in the Guitar Hero video game series.

It should also be mentioned that today's episode of Revolution Rock (or Revolution Surf if you prefer), was co-hosted by Derk Brigante of CJAM's weekly Surf show Surphony of Derstruction.  It can be heard every Tuesday night at 7 PM on CJAM 99.1 FM and streamed/downloaded via http://www.cjam.ca/

Lost and Found ... The Story of The Saints & Show # 339


Coming from Brisbane, Australia The Saints formed in 1974. They would take their influence from 50's bands such as Elvis Presley, Little Richard, 50's R&B, 60's Soul music and bands such as The Stooges, and The MC5. Before being named The Saints, the band was known briefly as Kid Galahad and The Eternals. The group consisted of Chris Bailey (vocals), Ed Kuepper (guitar), Ivor Hay (drums) and Kym Bradshaw on bass. The Saints decided to record the single "(I'm) Stranded" in August of 1976 independently after Kuepper, who was working at a record store at the time kept seeing boxes and boxes coming in of songs recorded by truckers and Country artists for promotional purposes. Inspired by the do it yourself ethic, "(I'm) Stranded" was recorded quickly in the studio. It came off sounding like nothing else in Australia at the time. The song featured the buzz saw sounding guitars of Ed Kuepper and the soulful singing stylings of Chris Bailey. The single (which was backed with the song "No Time") was released initially to a limited 500 pressing by The Saints on their own label, Fatal Records.

Shortly after its release, "(I'm) Stranded" was voted as "The Single of The Week" by Sounds Magazine in the UK. The single was on import and made it all the way to the UK, yielding a positive response. The song is seen as an important part of the history of not just Australian music, but in the beginnings of Punk pre-dating bands such as The Clash and Sex Pistols. The Saints were then offered a three album deal with EMI in the UK, which they accepted based on the response of the single. In June of 1976, the band headed into Window Studios in Brisbane, Australia to record their first full length album (I'm) Stranded.

With Rod Coe in the producer seat, the song writing team of Chris Bailey and Ed Kuepper converted their compositions into a ten track album. For the album the songs "(I'm) Stranded" and "No Time", were taken from the 1976 single (I'm) Stranded". The album sounded like a mix of Stooges Rock, The Missing Links, and 60s Soul music. The album received bad reviews upon its release in February 1977 in Australia. The album is now seen as a classic album and is often deemed as important and influential as albums by Sex Pistols and The Clash. There were songs such as "Messin' With The Kid" and "Story of Love" (slower soulful sounding tracks), "Demolition Girl", and "Erotic Neurotic", "Nights In Venice" (a wonderful fuzzy distorted song). The album also featured two cover songs, one "Wild About You" (originally by The Missing Links) and "Kissing Cousins" (originally by Elvis Presley). The Saints were then exported to Britain, where they played a show with Ramones and Talking Heads and The Roundhouse in London. Theoretically they should have done well, but The Saints were negatively received.

While their record company tried to sell the band along with the other bands in the UK Punk scene, the band did not agree with the labels tactics and did things their own way musically and in the fashion sense. They also lost bassist Kym Bradshaw around this time, he would be replaced by Algy Ward. The single "This Perfect Day" was released next in July of 1977. The single did very well showing commercial potential for the band, but unfortunately the single was out of stock for two weeks, which resulted in stalled success for the group. “This Perfect Day" did however make it to #34 on the UK singles charts. This did not stop the band, they proceeded back to the studio to record the One Two Three Four EP. It was recorded at AIR Studios in London, England in July of 1977 with Bill Price engineering. The blistering EP featured two cover songs and two re-recordings of songs found on the (I'm) Stranded album. The EP showed the evolution of the band, who were expanding their sound. The versions of "River Deep Mountain High" and "Lipstick On Your Collar" are raunchy and catchy. "Demolition Girl" and "One Way Street" rival the versions originally found on (I'm) Stranded. The One Two Three Four EP was originally released in October 1977 in Australia and September 1977 in the UK.

In the fall of 1977, The Saints began recording the album Eternally Yours. at Wessex, Roundhouse, and London Studios. The album was produced by Chris Bailey and Ed Kuepper with Bill Price and Mark Dearnley working the engineering duties. Eternally Yours showed off a more R&B sound reflecting their roots, sounding original and different from the other albums being released in London at the time. "Know Your Product" is a perfect example of the bands change in musical direction. The song while it featured song structures similar to other Saints songs, it also had a Stax influenced brass horns section. Lyrically the song reflected the bands situation in London and how they were trying to be forced into being lumped in the Punk scene at the time. Other great tracks include "Lost and Found", "A Private Affair", "Run Down", "Orstralia" and "(I'm) Misunderstood". “A Private Affair” also addresses the bands issues with being associated with the hype and commercialism of the London Punk scene at the time. There were other musical elements such as harmonica and more brass horn sections throughout the album. Acoustic based songs "Memories Are Made of This", "Untitled", and "A Minor Aversion" all add to the albums 13 song repertoire. The album ended with the song "International Robots", which was also originally going to be the title for the album. Eternally Yours was originally released in May of 1978 in Australia and April 1978 in the UK. It is one of the finest albums The Saints ever recorded.

After a European tour, with all the rising tensions amongst the band and their lack of success Chris Bailey quit the band. Wanting to go into a different music direction, he began assembling his own group, while the rest of The Saints began working on material for another album. Since the record company was losing faith in the band, they would not record the band if Chris Bailey was not in the group, so The Saints came to an agreement. In 1978, shortly after the release of Eternally Yours, they began work on what was to become Prehistoric Sounds. The album was drastically different than any of their previous efforts. The album was influenced more by Avant Garde Jazz, R&B and once again produced by Chris Bailey and Ed Kuepper with Bill Price and Jeremy Spencer Green Engineering. Combined with Rock and elements of the Saints early Punk sound, Prehistoric Sounds was an album ahead of its time.

The album art for Prehistoric Sounds, which depicts tall buildings sticking out of the water of a flooded city, is a distinctive example as to how different the album is. While the band may have been more experimental with this album, it is by no means a flimsy album. The song structures and arrangements are just as strong as any other Saints album. With songs such as "Swing For The Crime", "All Times Through Paradise", "Everyday's a Holiday, Every night's a Party", "Church of Indifference" and "Everything's Fine", the album was top notch. There were also cover versions of Aretha Franklin's "Save Me" and Otis Redding's "Security". Finally this album also featured the first solo song writing credit of singer Chris Bailey. "Take This Heart of Mine", featured lyrics and music written by Bailey, it reflects a Blues based influence. Lyrically the album as a whole addressed issues relating to alienation and as Kuepper has stated was written primarily from an Australian perspective. The album while it does have darker based lyrical themes, it often reflects a smooth, mesmerizing, hypnotic experience. The record company insisted that the first single to be released from the album was to be “Security” a cover of a song originally by Otis Redding. The album was not released in America and had a limited release. It was released in October of 1978 in the UK, but the cards had already been dealt and by the time Prehistoric Sounds hit Australia in February 1979, The Saints had imploded. Chris Bailey remained in London, while Kuepper moved back to Australia.

Chris Bailey would continue on with The Saints name only, while Kuepper pursued other music avenues such as The Laughing Clowns, The Aints and a solo career. Drummer Ivor Hay would go onto to play in a variety of bands even playing on a few later Saints album's, he would eventually form his own group Wildlife Documentaries. Bassist Algy Ward would go onto play bass in The Damned briefly and form his own Punk/Metal group Tank. Since then The Saints have gone onto influence numerous Australian bands and recently in 2007 and 2009, they reunited for some live shows. In 2008 Ed Kuepper joined Australia’s Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds as their touring guitarist when original guitarist Mick Harvey left the group. On January 2009, Kuepper, Bailey and Ivor Hay reunited to play the album (I’m) Stranded in its entirety as part of the All Tomorrow’s Parties Festival in Melbourne, Australia (Archie Larzza provided the bass).

 
While The Saints went virtually under the radar at the time of their first incarnation, they released three, wonderfully crafted albums of music that captures the essence of Rock, Soul and R&B music with the raw essence of Punk. With each album The Saints recorded their sound progressed and developed from their early Soul and Punk stylings of (I’m) Stranded to the bigger R&B driven sound of Eternally Yours to the sophisticated and intense Jazz, Blues, and Soul of Prehistoric Sounds. In 2005, All Times Through Paradise a four disc box set featuring the first era of The Saints was released. The album features all three Saints albums, B-sides, outtakes and live recordings. The box set is now out of print, but as of 2007 all of The Saints albums (with their original line up) have been reissued with the bonus tracks that were featured on the box set.

The Godfather of Soul....Mr.James Brown & Show # 338



James Brown is known as The Godfather of Soul. He released single after successful single taking over the R & B Charts with his style and groove, but his songs didn't just have the music the also had a message. Known for being prolific and releasing numerous songs that affected not only the music buying public, but also future musical artists, two songs in particular will be discussed here. They are both from his mid 60s period, which reflected an R & B/Soul sound. The first being a track entitled "Don't Be A Drop-Out". This song promoted education and stressed to young African American students to stay in school. At the time of the songs release in 1966, it spoke to a generation of young Americans during the Civil Rights movement, something that Brown would address on more than just this occasion.


The song “Money Won’t Change You Pt.1” was released as a single in 1966, but it did not chart and was not as well received as “Don’t Be A Drop-Out”. With lyrics like “Money Won’t Change You, But Time Will Take You On”, Brown weaves a story with a message in between this Soul stomper of a track. Part two of “Money Won’t Change You” was the B-Side to this single and both versions of the song with “Don’t Be A Drop-Out” can be found on the 1967 album James Brown Sings Raw Soul. The backing R & B vocal group for these songs and for a good part of James Browns’ early music career (from 1958-1968) were The Famous Flames. The band were usually not listed on album covers, which prevented them from being more well known at the time (they are more well known now). The band was founded by Bobby Byrd and lasted with Brown for the early part of his career. The band were on songs such as “Please, Please, Please”, “Think”, “I’ll Go Crazy”, and “Shout and Shimmy”. While the band stopped playing live with Brown in 1968, Bobby Bryd would rejoin James Brown in the 70s in a vocal based role as Brown gravitated from his early R & B sound to a Funk direction.

Brown’s hit singles coupled with his live performances which were beyond energetic, the hardest working man in show business was like no other. The songs mentioned here are just a small sample of the many great songs that James Brown has released throughout his decade spanning career and that have solidified him as the iconic Godfather of Soul.
