Greatest Lost Band of the 1960s_
In the car Greg turns on the radio and it's the Beach Boys
SFX Cue Beach Boys SURFING USA
A stereotypical California surfer scene: a bunch of blond-haired surfer
boys in their woodie listening to surf music.
INT. WOODIE. CU RICK'S FACE
Expression of distaste.
Turn that surf shit off!
(he snaps )
Greg turns it off and everyone laughs at the unintended irony of this
statement. Greg reaches out and changes the radio.
SFX CUE Psycho Daises by the Yardbirds - and the song plays in the background
throughout the following scene
Small amps, guitar cases and drums in the car including a bass
drum with the logo: Treadway & Company, indicating they are a band.
How come they don't play Slim Harpo on the radio?
Because normal people are too square to know who Slim Harpo is!
INS Scene of the other cars on the freeway and their all-American crew
cut passengers show this is true.
Shit, we're lucky if they even play the Animals or the Kinks on the
radio! Like this Yardbirds song is tits! But they hardly ever play it
What station is this?
KMEN - in San Burdo. They got a real English DJ
Maybe we shoulda just stuck to playing surf music!
Everyone ponders this statement, then Greg cracks a smile:
Surfing is bitchen but,
(joining in loudly)
SURF MUSIC SUCKS!!!
They all fall about laughing; except George
EXT. LATE AFTERNOON. WOODIE
Continues down the freeway. Surfboards conspicuously strapped on top
Come on, step on it, Greg. We gotta pick up Steve and get to the gig.
