Best known for their hit ‘Dirty Water’, The Standells released a string of garage rock singles in the late 1960’s, which are now regarded as proto-punk classics. They’ve inspired such groups as the Sex Pistols, Ramones and Stooges. Everyone from Bruce Springsteen, Aerosmith and U2 to Minor Threat has covered Standells records. “Dirty Water” is listed in the Rock Hall of Fame as one of the 500 songs that shaped Rock & Roll. The group was formed by keyboardist and lead vocalist Larry Tamblyn. “Dirty Water” reached #11 on the Billboard charts, #8 in Cashbox, and #1 in Record World. Other chart records include "Sometimes Good Guys Don't Wear White", "Try It," and "Riot On Sunset Strip," which is featured as the kick-off song Grammy-nominated Where the Action Is, a Rhino Records boxed CD set.
The Standells appeared in several movies, including “Get Yourself a College Girl” and “Riot on Sunset Strip”, performing the film’s title song. The Standells also frequently appeared on television. They guest starred as themselves in an episode of the The Munsters. They were also featured in an installment of The Bing Crosby Show, and as a nightclub band on an episode of Ben Casey. In addition to TV shows like Shindig, American Bandstand and Where the Action is, they were featured on Art Linkletter's House Party, debating broadcasting mogul Gordon McLendon who banned their recording “Try It”. McLendon deemed the song’s lyrics to be obscene. In reality, the song contained no questionable lyrics. By all accounts, the Standells defeated McLendon pretty handily.
"Dirty Water" is played after every home victory won by the Boston Red Sox, Boston Celtics, Boston Bruins and almost every sports team in Massachusetts. One would be hard-pressed to find a sports fan or rock music enthusiast in that state who never heard of the Standells. In 2007 the Massachusetts General Court has adopted “Dirty Water” as the ‘unofficial victory anthem of the Boston Red Sox’. The group has been regular guests of the Red Sox, including Game 2 of the 2004 World Series, 2007 ACLS championship, and most recently at Game 6 of the 2013 World Series.
The Standells have continued to actively perform throughout the world. Their recent concerts have been receiving rave reviews . In 2012 they released their first new album in over 45 years. “Bump”, which has been garnering high praise from music critics. They are about to release their 2nd new album “The 60’s the Standells” on Sony Music The group consists of original members Larry Tamblyn (lead singer & keyboard) and John Fleck (bassist), plus Mark Adrian (co-lead singer & guitar) and veteran drummer Greg Burnham.
The Blackeyed Soul Club (10:15pm - 2am)
The Blackeyed Soul Club is an underground sixties Soul / rock 'n' roll club based at The (http://www.thesatellitela.com/). Run by DJ's Jason Pandora and Howie Pyro who are looking for a way to give Los Angeles the kind of club where Mods, Rockers and anyone with an ear for good music and sharp style can come and DANCE to the obscure, great and downright delicious vinyl monsters that have been lighting up dance floors, and leading the way for DJ's all over the globe.
The records played range from the late 50s greasy RnB, to the Storming Soul of the 60s, to US Garage and British Beat. Tunes that slipped through the cracks the first time around, that are being resurrected by the most discerning. The club values itself on assembling a DJ roster with one thing in mind – the dance floor. Alongside the rare records that never made it, you're likely to hear someone dropping those heavy Motown sides that you know and love. The difference is, in this mix all these tunes sound as relevant as the day they were first released.
The Blackeyed Soul Club is a place for vinyl purists, it's a place for Mods, Rockabilly kids, Indie types but most of all it is for those who want to come, dance, and party without being patronized or intimidated by the usual 'sixties' scenes. It’s for anybody and everybody.
