The Mummies!

Just a reminder that If - E - Zine(tm) Issue Number 9, the Special Halloween Edition is now available and it FREE!!! Check it out here.

For this week's post I bring to you the legendary garage surf punk rock band The Mummies. They were founded sometime in 1988 or 1989 and have been going fairly strong ever since. This video is from a cable access show. The song is their take on "Surfin' Bird" by The Trashmen (which, if memory serves, was last popularized in the movie Back to the Beach starring Pee-Wee Herman aka Paul Rubens).

The Mummies perform their classic song "You Must Fight to Live on the Planet of the Apes". I didn't post this video because the sound quality isn't wonderful, but it's not horrible.
