DON'T YOU JUST KNOW IT / Re: Maps
« Last post by surferbee on July 23, 2020, 10:31:37 AM »
These are fascinating. I remember when I was first listening to Dead Man's Curve here in the UK and trying to work out the lyrics I was mystified. The street names were literally foreign to me. Bit by bit I found out the trust words. I bought a couple of Japanese albums that were beautiful but completely mistranslated the lyrics. The maps are excellent. They bring the lyrics to life as well as giving a different insight into Jan's life.

DON'T YOU JUST KNOW IT / Maps

Mark, your level of detail is unmatched. I love the maps. I wish I would have had access to them when I was on Sunset Blvd last summer. I had no idea that I was walking around Dore records and Liberty. I'm pretty sure I went to a coffee shop that may have been Dore.

Thank you for your attention to detail and your tedious hard work. Can't wait for the new book!

I bet Keith would have loved to sit in on the drums at a J&D concert for a few songs. And Iím sure the guys would be happy to let him. Same goes for The Beach Boys. He was a lover of surf music and left us way too soon.

There's a good video on You Tube

Also a video of Pan's People (the UK dance group that performed on Top of the Pops most famously) dancing to Bucket T.

Yes. Iíve always heard that Keith Moon was a big fan. Of course he does a cool version of Bucket T. I seem to remember he loved Honolulu Lulu. But I donít remember where I heard that

DON'T YOU JUST KNOW IT / Lockdown City

Hi Everyone

Everything has been very quiet during lockdown. I have been reading the Keith Moon biography - Dear Boy by Tony Fletcher.

Keith Moon was a really big surf music fan and had a record player fitted in his chauffeur driven car and blasted Jan and Dean - especially Dead Man's Curve.

He was a very idiosyncratic drummer but I think you can hear the influence of Hal Blaine (as on Jan and Dean).

Mark writes about Moon in his book.

I donít know anything about it. Apparently he built a song around Deadmanís Curve because thereís no other Jan and Dean song that can make you want to cry. Lol. But unfortunately I donít know this artist or any background of this song.  Itís pretty cool though.

Hereís another one with a reference and same title.

Is there a story behind this? I went to Andy Lindquist's Facebook page but nothing there that I could see...
