The Trashmen — Live in Spain

In 1963, the Trashmen achieved a landmark of cultural transcendence when they committed the immortal garage anthem "Surfin' Bird" to vinyl, capturing two and a half minutes of inspired, unhinged abandon that's never been matched in rock 'n' roll. The song climbed to Number Four on Billboard's national Hot 100, and became a massive hit in Canada, Mexico, Venezuela, Australia and Sweden. In 2008, onstage in Spain, the remarkably durable combo (with three-fourths of its original lineup intact) blasted through that seminal classic and a passel of vintage nuggets as if the ensuing four and a half decades had never happened.

This high-energy live set, which features an appropriately insane "Surfin' Bird," along with the Trashmen classics "Bird Dance Beat" and "King of the Surf," and the band's distinctive takes on such standards as "Money," "Ghost Riders In The Sky," "Ubangi Stomp," "Miserlou," "High School Confidential" and "Louie, Louie (the last two featuring guest appearances by Eddie Angel and Johnny Rabb of the Neanderthals). All of them are performed with the same good-naturedly demented intensity that continues to endear the Trashmen to fans around the world.
