They were kind enough to anser my ‘surf questions”:
UM: What kind of music do you normally play?
Sr.Bikini: Instrumental Classical Surf Rock.
UM: Are you a Surf kind of person or band?Is it your way of life? Do you really want to live in California?
Sr.Bikini: We just play Surf Rock, we don’t surf, but we have some friends that surf and we sometimes go to the beach to play in some contests and parties.
UM: Do you play (have you ever played) other Zappa compositions? Performed them live? Put them on record?
Sr.Bikini: Yes, we do play other Zappa compositions in concert, but we haven’t put them on record.
UM: Do you have records out? Discography?
Sr.Bikini: We have one album out, it’s called "Surf Extremo" and we have participated in 4 compilations.
UM: How did you find out about Alan's Zappa Surf Project?
Sr.Bikini:: Through Reverborama.
UM: Were you already playing a Zappa Surf Classic before you heard of Alan's project, or did you start working on it after you found out about the project?
Sr.Bikini: We were already playing the song.
UM: Why this particular Zappa composition?
Sr.Bikini: We picked ‘Jewish Princess’ because we have always found it a funny song.
UM: Is it your favourite Zappa composition or just the one that needs a Surf Treatment?
Sr.Bikini: We always loved the rubber chickens. It`s hard to change a song to an intrumental version, but we have found it harder in songs that really do mean something or that do have something to say. Often, with Zappa, the lyrics are more expressive than his music.
