Pyramids, The

Bonafide Long Beach surfers, The Pyramids – who had a hit in 1964 with Penetration – reacted against the mop-topped British Invasion by shaving their heads. It was a futile gesture as the surf music craze was consigned to the bargain bins soon afterwards.

Their moment of glory was appearing in the film Bikini Beach (1964) pumping out the instrumental number Bikini Drag, mostly buried underneath crucial dialogue (pictured above).
