The Day They Raised The Thames Barrier (And I Surfed All The Way To California)
The Beach Bums, one of the major Berkshire surf bands of the 80's.
Their brilliant (imho) track "The Day They Raised The Thames Barrier (And I Surfed All The Way To California)" featured on the 1985 Cherry Red compilation album "Hang 11 (Mutant Surf Punks)"
An album which also contained the obligatory cover of "Pipeline" this time by Agent Orange. The Bob loves those Pipeline covers...
I think I might have some photos of one of the Beach Bums performances somewhere, probably from one of their many support slots for The Surfin' Lungs at the Cellar Bar in South Hill Park, Bracknell.
