The Castaways

Best remembered for their garage-rock perennial "Liar Liar," the Castaways formed in 1962 around the nucleus of guitarist Roy Hensley, bassist Dick Roby and drummer Denny Craswell; originally founded simply to perform at a fraternity party, the group proved such a smashing success that it remained an ongoing concern, expanding to a quintet with the subsequent additions of lead guitarist Bob Folschow and keyboardist Jim Donna. The Castaways' lone hit, "Liar Liar" was written by Donna and released on the Soma label in 1965, reaching the number 12 slot on the U.S. charts on the strength of its inimitable echo-drenched vocals and wheezing keyboards. A series of follow-up efforts flopped, however, and despite an appearance in the 1967 film It's a Bikini World, the Castaways' career ground to a halt, although the band often performed live in the decades to follow. ~ Jason Ankeny

These guys were the real deal and so glad I got to know them as they went national with 'Liar Liar'...we loved them whenever they got back to the TC area!

Are you sure it was Burnsville HS? I'm pretty sure that Denny Craswell was in my sister's English Class at Richfield HS when "Liar, Liar" broke into national play.

As with most Twin Cities garage bands that recorded (like the Stompin' Underwoods and The Trashmen) they recorded on the Soma label. "Soma" is Amos spelled backwards, Amos being the name of the guy who did almost all of the local booking for the area teen-age dance halls.

Yea I heard the principal at Burnsville High School (in Minnesota) called the Castaways drummer out of class the day their record hit #1 to go to California to make an album.
