the bitch boys
The Bitch Boys recorded Frank Zappa's 'Memories Of El Monte' for "Lemme Take You To The Beach", a Zappa Surf album on Cordelia records.

Here’s a short chat with Robi from the Bitch Boys
Robi: We're The Bitch Boys, first Slovene instro surf band. We were formed in 1999 and recorded many demos , promos and albums from that day + appeared on many prestige surf compilations (REVERB CENTRAL) like Gnarly Reef, Tottaly Tubular, Locos Instrumentales... BTW Our album "...In Heat" was announced as "...best ever instru surf band ever by a modern surf band..." at PIPELINE MAGAZINE.
UM: Do you only play surf music?
Robi: We play only instrumental surf...well if we drink too much some times, you can actually hear us sing ha ha!
UM: Are you a Surf kind of person or band?
Robi: Surf band definitely...but person?? We count two Rock'a'billies and two happy punk rockers, and everybody loves surf...that's who we are!
UM: Is it your way of life? Do you really want to live in
Robi: ha ha, as we can see from many discussions, nobody except Britney Spears and similar artists can live from surf or any other kind of alternative rock'n'roll music...so we might live from surf someday, but at the moment, we go to work. And to be honest, we have don’t have very "surfie" jobs: 2 teachers, a waiter and amechanic !!
UM: How did you find out about Alan's Zappa Surf Project?
Robi: We heard that on Cowabunga…
UM: Do you play (have you ever played) other Zappa
Robi: Not so far...I remembered "MEMORIES OF EL MONTE" and persuaded the rest of the band to play it because I'm a teen and doo wop music addict , otherwise I'm not familiar with his music. Anyway, I (we) can not understand how he ever came to an idea for that nice DOO WOP song??? I'm sure many fans and are not familiar we that track!
