Check out this great track from pedal-steel-guitar legend BJ Cole and electronica producer Luke Vibert. It's a great piece of modern exotica.

Check out the Loungebots! The elder loungebot just emailed me after tfinding tikifish.com online when looking for tiki stuff. He said the concept behind the loungebots is like if some rusty robots took over playing all the gigs at Holiday Inns across the country. Or something like that. Some fun tiki iconography here too. So go listen to the loungebots! And tell 'em I sent ya!

I would second a motion on going for a broad church when it comes to TIKI and sounds. Definition is everything but then so is vibe. Depending on my mood Tiki is everything from Lounge and Exotica...Yma Sumac, Martin Denny, Les Baxter, Nelson Riddle (Adore Nelson), to broader strokes like moog from the great Dick Hymen.

My favourite Hawaiin music is hands down Hal Aloma's Hawaiin Holiday album which I picked up in an old Church jumble sale for $1.50! I took the thing home and have never stopped playing it since, it literally gets high rotation in my car at all times.

Then you've got the other end of Tiki which I think is era related. Tiki it could be said spans from the 40's through to the mid 70's, so depending on what *mood* I am in, era wise, I tend to go pretty broad. Surf bands and 50's Rockabilly fall within the realm of era freindly grooves, so the Tiki Tones to early 60's garage R'n'B like the Sonics gets airplay at my Hut.

My list would go something like...

Martin Denny
Hal Aloma
Nelson Riddle
Les Baxter
Henry Mancini
Link Wray
Tiki Tones
Yma Sumac
60's James Bond Orchestra (Dr No) rocks!
Dick Hymen
The Four Freshmen
Beach Boys
Stray Cats
Brian Setzer Orchestra
Sounds Incorporated (My dads 60's band, the Beatles support band on all their tours and managed by Brian Epstien)
Sal Soul Orchestra
Burt Bacharach (Dust Springfield versions)
Gene Pitney (Very cool)
The Meteors... etc etc etc

I even string my Tiki into bands like the Cramps, the Clash, the B-52's etc...

Dig... Tiki Rocker

I won't get into any of the classic stuff cause there's plenty of peoplke around here who know those titles better than me. But as for new stuff:

The Blue Hawaiians

Ape (Crazy Al carves with this band)

The Fisherman (Brain Lease, The Fissherman, is acctually also a member of Ape but has a side project)

Let me know if you want some MP3s. Ape doesn't have a full length CD out yet but there's a demo, Crazy Al could probably get you that. Same thing with The Fisherman, no full length CD out right now just a demo but I got both their demos so I can get you MP3s for you to check out. The Blue Hawaiians have a pretty new CD called Live at The Lava Lounge. Hey I was going to give you a call in a couple of days to ask you about venues down toward San Diego area. I now your partner down at Tiki Farm is in a surf band so I wanted to see where would be a good place to book a band. I'm setting up a couple of shows for Ape in July, while they'll be coming into So-Cal. I got them a gig opening for The Blue Hawaiians on the 19th at Kozmos in Huntington Beach but I wanna line something up for the 20th (Saturday), down a little further towards San Diego.

There is a yet unknown band that will be playing at Hukilau 2002. It turns out a musician in Atlanta has put together a new group. They will be playing along with The Penetrators and maybe more.

SIX WORDS:

QUINCY JONES BIG BAND BOSSA NOVA!

Is a lounge, swanky dream! Especially "Soul Bossa Nova" which most of y'all would recognise as that kooky/catchy song from Austin Powers.

Does Al Caiola fall into tiki at all? I seem to remember him doing a Hawaiian type album. I think my folks have it, I'll have to check.

I have an Al Caiola Hawaiian LP - can't remember the title but it is Al doing guitar instrumental versions of Hawaiian standards like The Hukilau Song and Lovely Hula Hands, etc. - It's pretty good!
