It’s Not Just Because of the Title of the Song, I Swear

I’ll be honest, I didn’t expect the Summer of the Wave to last this long and it’s only been 3 days. Of course we haven’t made it to the first weekend yet, but that will be (as they say) “the true test.” With the weekend upon us though we’re gonna sit back and chill with the song Penetration by The Pyramids. I love how the song starts out, with just a blitz drum beat, plenty of cymbals, bells, and just some high leveled percussion throughout the back, with a smooth, wailing in the wind guitar. The Pyramids were from Long Beach, California. This particular song is said to be the last major instrumental surf hit, breaking into the top 20 of the Billboard 100 in 1964. Check them out in Bikini Beach pretending to be the Beatles briefly.
