THE SURF SUNS - 'I Can't Stop It Now'/'Still In Love With You Baby' (Ben Records 6745) 1967
I love the name of this group, The Surf Suns, has a fantastic ring to it, but don't expect surf rock from these boys. Not a great deal has been written about The Surf Suns, although a picture of the group has surfaced on the excelent blog 60s Indiana band szene, and it's confirmed that New Haven, Indiana is where this group of teenagers hailed from.
'I Can't Stop Now' is fragile folk-rock with that magical signature sound of the jangling guitar. I keep expecting it to take off with some fuzz but it's all very restrained and quite poppy. Instead of harmonies the Surf Suns add 'bah, bah, bah's...
On the other side of the 45 is a version of The Beau Brummels tune 'Still In Love With You Baby' which is a good effort. They were certainly a talented group, but this is their one and only release.
