Spazz you like it
WFMU deejay Dave the Spazz hosts a beach party with some of his favorite bands at Spazzstock 2001 in Coney Island.
By ROBIN EISGRAU
On WFMU (91.1 FM) Thursday nights from 8 to 11,
deejay Dave The Spazz spins
a show that's got an unabashedly fun blend of deep-fried vintage rock 'n' roll
and general nuttiness. On Friday, Aug. 10, you'll want to grab your most
party-worthy friends and take the long ride on the F train out to Coney
Island and check out Spazzstock 2001, where the spirit of the show will come
Dave The Spazz hosts a passel of bands for a night that will surely
go down in retro-wacky history. There will be fireworks on the boardwalk at
9:30, and at 10 the shakin', rattlin' and rollin' begins.

Scheduled to appear
are Sato & Johnny, consisting of Japanese singing star Masayo Sato and her
husband Johnny (he's also in the Church Keys), along with Doug (he used to be
in the Church Keys) as they crank up a stew of rockabilly, country and rock
'n' roll. (Look out for their cover of Wanda Jackson's "Funnel Of Love.")
The Spittoons in their debut performance will regale the crowd with WCBS-FM
rock 'n' roll hits done in punk rock style. Featuring two ex-members of the
A-Bones, The Clams will play a set of tunes from the soundtracks to Elvis
Presley movies. (Maybe they'll do "Do The Clam.")
The host for the event, Dave The Spazz himself, will be playing with
The Shemps (pictured above), who'll surely whip
things up into a punk-rock garage frenzy. And last but not least, The
Plungers featuring Masayo Sato onstage again with Akiko and Al Batross
will kick punk-rock sand in your face, Japanese-style.
Beer will be available
and there may be some chimp movies unspooling. Admission price was still
being decided at press time, but it shouldn't be more than 10 dollars.
