Real surfers don’t wear that much clothing.

The Centurions
“Surfers’ Pajama Party”
Del-Fi #1228
(John Spath collection)
MAILBAG:

“When Del-Fi Records released the one and only album by The Centurions, they mistakenly gave it the exact same cover and catalog number as the [Bruce Johnston] Surfers’ Pajama Party that is shown on your site… Needless to say, it was nearly impossible for anyone to order the Centurions album and they soon met the fate of so many other West Coast surf-rock bands (that is, until the overrated Quentin Tarantino and the underrated John Waters pulled tracks from the album for the films Pulp Fiction and Pink Flamingos, respectively.)”

Although I first had this listed as the Bruce Johnston version, its actually the Centurions version! –BR

    Linda, I was one of the sax players in The Centurions (correct spelling). I’ve wondered about your uncle for years. The word was out that perhaps he’d passed on.?? Pat

    My uncle was the drummer for the Centurians. They actually beat the Beach Boys in a “battle of the bands” in Newport Beach in the 60s when they were both brand new bands.
