It's on the list on this site. Unknown Dutch band. I don't know if it's right but the Passmore book mentions a band name and a recording date.
Until next time.

Just had a look at the Passmore book song credited to the De Four Yos. There on the list ie Jan & Dean Covers, credited to a different version??.
I've got a bootleg cassette that lists the song as Surf Flunky lol.
Until next time I hope this hasn't confused you too much.

The Fouryo's version of Surf City is on youtube different to Surf Bunky.
Surf Bunky remains unknown Dutch band.
Until next time

Hey, I found my cassette with the alternate surf city and also surf bunky/flunky?  Can I upload here? Currently trying to get them onto pc, bought a cassette player that transfers to mp3 on pc apparently....

You can't upload it here, but you can link from here to wherever you do upload it.

It is so bad I can only listen to about three lines before I close it out.  Reminds me of the 1970's greatest hits albums with studio musicians.
