Overview

Mr. Gasser & the Weirdos were not an actual band, but a pseudonym for a studio group that revolved around the artwork and persona of custom car painter Ed "Big Daddy" Roth, i.e. Mr. Gasser, known for his iconic cartoon creations of monsters driving hot rods. Like so many of the quickie surf/hot rod albums of the era, the best studio musicians were utilized, including Jerry Cole, David Gates, Steve Douglas, Leon Russell, and Earl Palmer, while producer and arranger Gary Usher manned the controls. A total of three Mr. Gasser LPs were issued by Capitol, the third, Surfink!, in 1964. Song titles such as "Surfer Ghoul," "There's a Dog-Gone Ding in My Ding-Dong Board," "Finksville, U.S.A.," and "Little Fink Surfs Again" give you a good idea of what to expect from this fun limited-edition reissue from Sundazed.
