WIPE OUT© The SurfarisWipe Out is a surf rock instrumental composed by Bob Berryhill, Pat Connolly, Jim Fuller and Ron Wilson. Composed in the form of twelve-bar blues, the tune was first performed and recorded by the Surfaris, who became famous with the single in 1963.The single was first issued on the independent labels DFS (#11/12) in January 1963 and Princess (#50) in February and finally picked up for national distribution on Dot as 45-16479 in April. Dot reissued the single in April 1965 as 45-144.The song—both the Surfaris’ version as well as cover versions—has been featured in over 20 films and television series since 1964, appearing at least once a decade.A “wipe out” is a fall from a surfboard, especially one that looks painful.Bob Berryhill, Pat Connolly, Jim Fuller and Ron Wilson wrote “Wipe Out” almost on the spot while at Pal Recording Studio in Cucamonga, California, in late 1962, when they realized they needed a suitable B-side for the intended “Surfer Joe” single. One of the band members suggested introducing the song with a cracking sound, imitating a breaking surfboard, followed by a manic voice babbling, “ha ha ha ha ha, wipe out”. The voice was that of the band’s manager, Dale Smallin.“Wipe Out” spent four months on the Billboard Hot 100 in the summer of 1963, reaching number 2, behind Stevie Wonder’s “Fingertips”. Meanwhile, the original A-side “Surfer Joe”, sung by Ron Wilson, only attracted airplay in the wake of “Wipe Out”’s success, peaking at number 62 during its six-week run. “Wipe Out” returned to the Hot 100 in 1966, reaching number 16 on the Hot 100 (and number 63 for the year), peaking at number 9 on the Cash Box chart, selling approximately 700,000 copies in the U.S. The single spent a grand total of 30 weeks on the Hot 100. Wilson’s energetic drum solo for “Wipe Out” (a sped-up version of his Charter Oak High School marching band’s drum cadence) helped the song become one of the best-remembered instrumental songs of the period. Drummer Sandy Nelson issued different versions on multiple LPs. In 1970, “Wipe Out” peaked at number 110 on the Bubbling Under Hot 100 Singles chart.Following the 2001 death of television personality Morton Downey Jr., news reports, obituaries and Downey’s official website incorrectly credited him as the composer of “Wipe Out”.In science fiction author Robert J.

WIPE OUTNeanderthal Parallax series, the DNA sequence for a deadly virus is saved in a computer folder entitled “Surfaris”. A character immediately recognizes this as a reference to “Wipe Out” and determines that the virus will wipe out all of the Neanderthals on a parallel universe’s Earth. She then rewrites the DNA code to a non-lethal version and calls the file “Surfer Joe” in reference to the A-side of “Wipe Out”.In the late 2000s, the track was used on Harry Hill’s TV Burp, usually played when Harry or the Knitted Character ride a jelly.“Wipe Out” has been included in a number of film soundtracks, including those of Dark Star (1974), Dirty Dancing (1987), The Sandlot (1993), Toy Story 2 (1999), Recess: School’s Out (2001), The Cat in the Hat (2003), Herbie Fully Loaded (2005), Surf’s Up (2007), Far Cry New Dawn (2019), and Stranger Things (2022).In 2014, the track was played in the 29th episode of season 5 of Regular Show as the “ancient call of the surfers”.The Surfaris are an American surf rock band formed in Glendora, California, United States, in 1962. They are best known for two songs that hit the charts in the Los Angeles area, and nationally by May 1963: “Surfer Joe” and “Wipe Out”, which were the A-side and B-side of the and reissued as Dot 45–144 in April 1965. It sold over same 45 rpm single.The Surfaris were inducted into the Musicians Hall of Fame and Museum in 2019 for their hit instrumental song, “Wipe Out”.In the fall of 1962, Southern California high school students Jim Fuller and Pat Connolly competed against Bob Berryhill in a local talent show and were wanting to create a band. Fuller and Connolly called Berryhill one day to ask if he wanted to practice, since he had an amp. After practicing the two told Berryhill they were going meet with drummer Ron Wilson at a high school dance. After adding Wilson then Berryhill the band was set. That night they played their first dance at Pomona Catholic High School after a football game. Using the drum cadence from his high sig school but sped up, with the guitar riff Jim Fuller originally was writing it for a song named “Switchblade” he had been working for a couple months prior. Wipe Out” was written and recorded by the quartet later that winter, with the song reaching No. 2 nationally in 1963 before becoming an international # 1 hit.Saxophone player Jim Pash joined after their “Wipe Out” / “Surfer Joe” recording sessions at Pal Studios engineer Paul Buff.Ken Forssi, later of Love, played bass with The Surfaris after Pat Connolly left.Wilson’s energetic drum solo made “Wipe Out” one of the best-remembered instrumental songs of the period. “Wipe Out” is also remembered particularly for its introduction. Before the music starts, Berryhill’s dad found a piece of plywood in back of the studio and Pat broke the board (imitating a breaking surf board) over the mic, followed by a maniacal laugh and the words “Wipe Out” spoken by band manager Dale Smallin. After needing a second song to record, Jim Fuller had been working on a guitar riff for almost a month for a song he was writing named “Switchblade”. They used the guitar riff and used a sped up Charter Oak High School drum cadence and “Wipe Out” was born and recorded studio by the four original members (Berryhill, Connolly, Fuller, and Wilson). It was initially issued on the tiny DFS label (#11/12) in January 1963. It was reissued on the tiny Princess label (#50) in February 1963. It was picked up by Dot (45-16479) in April 1963, one million copies and was awarded a gold disc.The Surfarisshapemedia.uk 05 | 6 36 3
