Product Notes

And just who is "Cap'n Coconuts"??? Simian spy turned Hollywood cad, now a bouncer at a bar in San Francisco? Or star of a 60's TV sitcom that apparently only Pool Boys leader Ferenc Dobronyi remembers. "He was my muse for this record. I wanted to write instrumentals that evoked the feelings that I get when I remember the music of my childhood.' But what will Cap'n Coconuts do for you? Drop the needle on side one and hear the full on, spare no expenses production of a Wrecking Crew session. Vintage Fender guitars and amps, B-3 and Vox Continental, Beatle bass and Ludwig Black Beauty. Horns, strings, glockenspiel. Tank reverb, tube compression and U-41s. The Pool Boys know you can hear the details. Thirteen originals and one cover song that strive for an individual tone and mood on each track. Basic tracks for the Cap'n Coconuts sessions were cut with the core group of Dusty Watson (The Sonics, Dick Dale, Agent Orange) on drums, Danny Snyder (The TomorrowMen) on rhythm guitar, Tony Bald (The Gregors) on bass and percussion, Karen Dobronyi (Meshugga Beach Party) on keyboards and Ferenc Dobronyi (Pollo Del Mar) on lead guitar. But, the Pool Boys continue to have an open membership when it comes to recording. The guest list on these tracks is a mile long with musicians from bands such as The Surf Coasters, The Exotics, Tikiyaki Orchestra, The Deadbeats, Pollo Del Mar sitting in. Insect Surfer David Arnson works his signature mojo on "Rattler Ranch" and the man responsible for the surf revival, John Blair of Jon & The Nightriders trades leads on "Cat Fight".
