The Breakers; Big Fun b/w Sun Time
I recently purchased a USB turntable so I could archive some of my records which I cannot find either on CD or on the many blog sites that have the more obscure music that I love.
For it's maiden voyage I pulled out a very rare single from 1984 by a group called The Breakers, produced by New York independant/New Wave journalist/emprasario Alan Betrock (responsible for the early Smithereens EP Beauty and Sadness).
I don't know where they came from but they sound as if they were from early 60's West Coast, doing an innocent surf music that Brian Wilson would have been proud to have written.
I attempted to find out some more information about this group and in the process discovered that Alan Betrock died in 2000 at the age of 49 from cancer.
