I literally have two or three minutes to write this, so here we go. The Trashmen are a surf rock band known best for the song "Surfin' Bird", which was repopularized recently by (unfortunately) Family Guy. There's so much more to them than a silly novelty song, though. There are some excellent cuts on this album - a cover of Dick Dale's "Misirlou", a tongue-in-cheek song entitled "My Woodie", and "King of the Surf" and "Bird Bath" are also standouts. One of the best surf rock bands to ever exist.
