Thanks, that was fun.
I skated one day with the guitar player from JFA, I think his name was Don. Big curly hair.
He came to my ditch (Back Door) and was pretty cool, and could skate, so we took him up into the Tustin Hills to a pool we had going for about six months in the back of an abandoned house.
I believe Brian recently did guest DJ spots for or with Whorehay/Radio Free Bakersfield...I think?
A local surf shop here in SD has one of those original huge ass cutaway JFA decks, with the paisley logo, on the wall for display.
Health Sucks.

still trying to wrap my head around that one. WOW!!!


The Tikis "WE" care about are from the mainland.

Also "Pipetruck" --> "Pipeline" --> Hawaii --> real Tikis --> mid-century Tiki-style ?? That's at least 4 degrees of separation on that question !!

And about the Peanuts theme, here's surf culture author Dominic Priore's take (or is it Brian Chidester's?)...

"Perhaps the best recordings of surf music by any punk band were those done by JFA (Jodie Foster's Army), which recorded Vince Guaraldi's 'Schroder's Theme' as heard in the Peanuts television cartoon specials back in the '60s..."

"JFA took the Astronauts' approach to thick, steady rhythm guitar tones and threw on a 'Baja'-styled lead guitar part to Guaraldi's most famous melody. Without trying too hard to be 'Surf', these cats from Arizona captured the true spirit of surf music better than most of the people who fail the minute they put on a bad Hawaiian shirt."

Regardless of its origin, it's (IMHO) a "Surf song".

Well I will take credit for coming up with the band, but I dropped the ball
on the Song answers, I am not worthy of tickets, so please give the one I might
receive to whom ever gets em, so they can take someone with them.

BIG THANKS! Jeff for doing the contests, it adds an element of fun to TC
and FUN is TIKI!

Missed the contest and was not a huge punk fan......I was a big metal (saw Sabbath at the Whisky-A-Go-Go before they hit the big time) and fan of of pre-punk Rock bands MC5, The Stooges, Budgie, Dust, Sir Lord Baltimore, The Pink Fairies, etc. Check out this crazed version of Walk Don't Run from one of my faves from the early 70s....
