Atomic Beach Party Volume One! (2001)

The perfect disc for all your radiated fun in the nuclear winter sun beach party from Abominable Records.
What, you've never heard of this album or that record company? Well of course you haven't it was my own computer based record company and we never sold a single cd or would have since i would have never sold any discs, i made copies of another Abominable Records cd ( i wonder if they still have their copies?). Abominable Records only existed from 199 to 2001 i believe. I just ripped some tracks off Atomic Beach Party that i didn't have on this computer and gave me this idea for a post.
Here's the track list :
Beach Boys - Fun Fun Fun
Donnas - School's Out
Cramps - Bikini Girls With Machine Guns
Ventures - Walk Don't Run
Shonen Knife - Banana Chips
Ghastly Ones - Surfin' Spooks
Smashmouth - Walking on The Sun
Go-Go's - Surfin' and Spying
Annette - Beach Party
Chantays - Pipeline
Dickies - Tricia Toyota
Pyramids - Penetration
Tornadoes - Bustin' Surfboards
Sakura & The Quests - My Boy Lollipop
Surf Punks - My Beach
Pixies - Wave Of Mutilation
? and the Mysterians - 96 Tears
Surfaris - Wipe Out
Descendents - Wendy
Beachnuts - Cycle Annie
Blondie - Love At The Pier
Astronauts - The Hearse
Ramones - Surfin' Safari
Shatners - He's Dead Jim
Annette & the Beach Boys - Monkey's Uncle
Dick Dale - Miserlou
Trashmen - Surfin' Bird
Belairs - Mr. Moto
Ramones - Sheena Is A Punk Rocker
Lively Ones - Surf Rider

I think that was pretty good line up and mix of songs, from surf rock to punk rock. The Beachnuts tune is rare - it's Lou Reed from the early 60's when he was pop song writer before VU.
Volume 2 would have had the Shaggs "My Pal Foot Foot" and Sloppy Seconds "Horror Of Party Beach" to name a couple.
It seems the time of homemade cd are gone now.


  1. I love the sound of this selection! I still do swap a few home-made CDs with friends and get so excited about both compiling them and receiving them; it seems our song choices are always so much better than anything a bona fide company could put together..!

  2. I always enjoyed making them but my computer that had the DVD burner died on me a few years back. Companies just want to put out the "hits" and never the cool stuff we fans want. I'm always on the look out for the rare track or some cool forgotten band.
