    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 alive.

     SCHEDULE
    Sideshows at the Seashore 1208 Surf Avenue at West 12th St. Coney Island, Brooklyn Fri., Aug. 10 Info: (718) 372-5159

    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.
