Man, I was starting to panic. I was having a hard time finding a live post of "It's Monster Surfing Time", the album by the mysterious studio band, the Deadly Ones. It's a no-brainer this time of year, and a guaranteed cheap post I look forward to taking advantage of. Sorry if you've heard it, been there, done that, but some of the younger creeps may not have. That's how damn thoughtful I am.
I've looked and looked and found nothing of a backstory, with the exception of songwriting credits at AllMusic. Out of the twelve songs, five were written by "J. South". Is it Joe South? I don't know. That's why I continue to look for a backstory. Every year I give it up after a few pages of search results. Would knowing more make it a better album? Possibly. Would knowing it was the brainchild of Joe South diminish my respect for him? No. Is it a throwaway novelty LP, or a brilliant double cash-in? Or is it time to stop thinking about it and just get nutty already?
