The Lively Ones can not even be ignored becausethey stood at the origins of surf rock (as The Expressos) in 1960along with Dick Dale & the Del-Tones. The group has never hidden his admiration for Dick Dale and the first three entries in the mini- album `Surf Rider` were cover versions of Dick Dale! Moreover, the two original Ed Chiaverini and Ray Hunt group member met it on Dick Dale concert.Single The Expressos "Teenage Express" (which gave it its name) was by and large the new arrangement of the songs surf Preston Epp "Bongo Rock," which Hunt - then a solo guitarist, taught to play Jim Fuller`a, which in turn very soon I used the basic riffs of this song to record the hit group the Surfaris "Wipe Out" -one of the most famous songs in the world of surf rock. In -side of the single "Wanderin`" was soon overwritten by a new group Hunt`a The Surfmen (whose members and subsequently became The Lively Ones and whose rare version of the song "Ghost Hop" remained unreleased until then, until you came to the collection Del-Fi Records `Wild Surf!) Hunt was looking for musicians to start to speak and invited Tim Fitzpatrick (drums), Ron Griffith (bass) and Chiaverini (rhythm guitar). The Surfmen collapsed after Griffith, Fitzpatrick and Chiaverini decided to gather his own group with guitarist Jim Masoner and saxophonist Joel Willenbring.On the radio station KFWB DJ Gene Weed found a name for the group: "Gene saw as we rode on stage at concerts, I heard the sound of our music, and once told us that" a handful of spermatozoa "(lively ones)" says Masoner.
