Chimps - Live At The Safari Club! CD
Here's an all-vocal album recorded live to mono at the Safari Club outside of Portland. Following in the fine tradition of Pacific Northwest party music combos, the Chimps put together a classic revue, with strains of the Kingsmen, Raiders, and Trashmen coming through quite clearly. The Trashmen connection is especially appropriate, considering that the Chimps are comprised mostly of members of the outstanding instro surf combo Satan's Pilgrims. Songs like Double Whammy, Long Green, Little Latin Lupe Lu, and their original number Chubby Chaser all make for what musta been an evening to remember.
