The Pyramids (Surf)

In early 1964, the Pyramids made the Top 20 with "Penetration," the last big national instrumental surf hit, and one of the best of its ilk. The Long Beach, California group achieved some notoriety for shaving their heads just as the British Invasion was attacking American shores. Their music wasn't all that special, though, aside from the majestically sleek, haunting groove of their big smash. They disbanded after recording one album and a few non-hit singles, divided between average surf instrumentals and clunky frat-rock vocal numbers; they also appeared in the quickie beach movie Bikini Beach. ~ Richie Unterberger

The Pyramids quite possibly were one of the first punk bands whose style was an over energized southern ca surfer. They showed up to shows by parachute or riding elephants and then proceeded to devastate the crowd with hard driven surf music...The only bad that I have seen that I could imagine matching there intensity, energy and spriit would be Fishbone or Bad Brains...

The Pyramids left behind a legacy of surf songs somewhere between the slick minimalism of the Astronauts and the wild "cowabunga" attitude of Del-Fi bands such as the Lively Ones. Their "Midnight Run" is a personal fave. And let's not forget their appearance in the Beach Party movies.
