Going APE ...

Tonight here on The Secret Island I've literally been going APE listening to Jungle Gems from the band by the same name.

"APE formed amidst the rocky shores and crashing waves of San Francisco's windward side in 1998. Eric Rindal had already successfully circumnavigated the world of instrumental surf music with his band The Swami's, but now he was restless. Like Thor Heyerdahl in Kon-Tiki, he set out upon a journey across the musical ocean, in search of adventure. For crew he signed on tiki carver Crazy Al, shameless pineapple fondler Mitch Tobias, fellow ex-Swami (and now leader of the Badass Chickenbones) Lane, exotic drummer Kevin Woodhouse, and Hawaiian steel & uke nut Frank Novicki (of the Waikiki Steel Works). Together they created the unique sound and look of APE."

In this clip APE perform Jumping Beans at Tiki Oasis 6 ...

If you enjoyed that then there is plenty more like that on this release. However one word of caution listening to Jungle Gems may result in the consumption of multiple Mai-Tais. Mia Huna Moku urges you to drink responsibly. Please do not attempt to guide an outrigger canoe while listening to this CD.

No download links as this is still very much available... so get your self to Bone Productions and pick up the sixteen track CD for only $15 cool bananas!
