Wild Weekend/Tuff Surf/Stoked/Surf Drums
The Lively Ones were an American instrumental surf rock band active in the 1960s. The guys came together in 1963 in Southern California and did well for a while, scoring minor hits with “Surf Rider” and “Rik-A-Tic”, but mostly operating as a cover band doing established songs like “Pipeline” and “Telstar”, along with occasional updated standards.They played live mostly in California and Arizona. They recorded for Del-Fi records with production from Bob Keane. They recorded mostly cover songs, but there were a few originals.
Their 1963 song "Surf Rider" (written by Nokie Edwards from The Ventures) was featured in the final sequence as well as the end credits of Quentin Tarantino's 1994 film Pulp Fiction.
