So it's Friday night, and you know Eegah and Tabonga like to rock out on the weekend, so here's a real dandy of a tune from a real stinker of a movie from our fave Arch Hall, called "Robot Walk!" I read somewhere online recently where they actually slammed this almost perfect little tune! Unbelievable! On this one song, Arch hands over the reins to Pat & Lolly Vegas and here's the reason why! Are you ready?? Way before this movie, Pat and Lolly Vegas, from Fresno, Calif, also recorded the singles "Let's Go" as the Routers, "Surf Stomp" and "Batman" as the Mar-kets, and "Hotrodders Choice," "Dawn Patrol," "Double A Fueler," and "Satan's Chariot" as the Deuce Coupes. They were part of the house band on "Shindig" and backed Sonny and Cher, Elvis, and more before becoming "Redbone" in 1969! I have no idea what these guys are doing today, but it sure would be fun to find out, because they must have some stories to tell!!
If you can find it, "Robot Walk" was released as a single in 1964 backed with "Big Surf" by Pat and Lolly this time using the name The Sharks.
This is one of the few songs presented on this blog that would have been much better without the insipidly inane dialogue, screaming and whining, but we take what we can get around here!
Pat and Lolly, you guys rock!!
