The Belairs

Formed by guitarists Eddie Bertrand and Paul “P.J.” Johnson and future Challengers drummer Richard Delvy, LA’s Belairs were contemporaries of Dick Dale & His Del-Tones and helped to build the gymnasium-rattling ground swell that became surf music. In 1962 the quintet swamped the charts with the classic “Mr. Moto,” which soon became a standard in the repertoires of innumerable surf bands. Johnson later formed the likewise legendary P.J. & the Galaxies. When it comes to rocking surf sounds, the title of the tune that serves as the namesake of Sundazed’s Belairs anthology says it all: “Volcanic Action.”
