Castaways Liar Liar

Recommended Posts

I,VE HAD QUITE A FEW OF THESE ON SOMA & THEY ALWAYS SELL WELL ON EVILBAY,BUT HAD NOT REALISED IT WAS ON THIS LABEL TOO .ONE TO ADD TO THE 6TH EDITION PRICE GUIDE JOHN AS IT IS NOT LISTED.

KEV

A great, great record which I eventually heard by accident. I always loved it but classed it as just a great pop record. I thought it was almost Northern Soul but always kept it in the pop section in my collection. It had a bit of a resurgence when it was used in "Lock Stock & Two Smoking Barrels" to great effect.

It was only recently when I was doing some research that I found out that it used to be played at The Wheel, which kinda makes perfect sense really. Who were the Castaways? Does anyone know the history of this record?

The Castaways

Their first and only hit single was "Liar, Liar". Written by band leader James Donna and Denny Craswell, produced by Timothy D. Kehr and released by Soma Records, it reached number 12 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart in 1965. "Liar, Liar" is featured in the films Good Morning, Vietnam and Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels. The Castaways may be seen performing "Liar, Liar" in the 1967 beach movie, It's a Bikini World.

:lol: I was at a soul night in the 80's when this was played - cleared the floor BUT The Vogues - Five o' Clock World was also played that night , and people loved it - both of which are in the film Good Morning Vietnam

Kev,

It's not listed because LANA is a re-issue (bootleg) label. But maybe I should add it to PG6 with a reference as a bootleg. We sell it for a tenner even though this boot is far rarer than the original Soma release. LANA did a few Northern Soul related re-releases 1. Reflections - Romeo & Juliet etc 2. Inez & Charlie Foxx etc.

I've just played my London stock copy and demo, my Soma stocker and three different CD-fications of ''Liar, Liar' - they're all absolutely identical, with no tempo or arrangement differences whatsoever.

Can you perhaps post up the 'slower, different arrangement' that you reckon is on the US copy? I'd love to hear it, if it exists....:hatsoff2:

Yes, it was a wheel and Mod scene spin, I also think some djs speed it up as I've heard it played faster than how the 45 sounds at home....

I saw this thread last night and looked for my copy to play it but it's all but disappeared (if you saw my husbands's record room.you'd understand why I can't find it!). If anybody has a spare please let me know:thumbsup: And no doubt mine will turn up the minute I paypal the cash:lol:

I'm amazed that this is being discussed, I mean it's a brilliant garage punk record but I've never heard it played as a soul record or even heard of it being played at a venue.

You're 100% right Pete. I never considered it a Soul record but it was played at the Wheel and I can see why. Good floorfiller in it's day I reckon.....

pet,

used to play this at the mod/soul nights at the long acres during the early 80's along with "in the nighttime" by the strangeloves. its white, its west coast garage as we say and as a backdrop for films its a "hairs on the back of your neck" spine tingler....i think a responsible dj could get away with playing this at a northern soul night, when the crowd is jumping/up for it.......HONESTLY, its no different from the human beinz and HOW GOOD and from a refreshingly different angle, did that sound in KILL BILL?.

Sorry Rob can't see it, Human Beinz is out and out northern, this is just garage.

Agree about Kill Bill, really took me by surprise.

Nah, it was the Tarrantino 'Grindhouse' double-bill he did with Robert Rodriguez. Tarrantino's just great with music isn't he? So inventive......

Anyway whatever happened to the Castaways then? I thought had they had a pretty unique sound.....

In the credits it's called 'Stroll On' but it's actually a version of Tiny Bradshaw's "The Train Kept A Rollin", done in the style of the Johnny Burnette Trio's version of that song...

Here's the Yardbirds;

...and here's Johnny:

...and for good measure here's Tiny:

...and finally, here are the Yardbirds again, actually playing 'The Train Kept A Rollin'"

Ian D :ohmy:

They survived several personnel and label changes, and kept making records almost to the end of the 60s. Their version of Goldie and the Gingerbreads' "Walking In Different Circles" (Fontana - 1968/9) is pretty good...

There is a slower version which is played on the mod scene, it's quite nice and it's by Los Iberos - Liar Liar - Discos Columbia

OK, so that's both the Wheel and the Scene that played it, so a bona-fide spin after all.

Ian D :yes:

Yes, definitely remember it getting plays back in 1966 in my local disco, mind you at that time the big pop tunes were played alongside the soul stuff...in fact I think my London issue came from that clubs collection...:rolleyes:

Agree, an out and out Garage tune. I always find it weird that the Seeds' 'Pushing Too Hard' is regarded as Northern too!!

Best one on Soma (really a Garage label) is The Del-Counts 'With Another Guy'...absolutely Blue-Eyed Northern and superb!

...actually Soma's NOT really a garage label - it;s just a coincidence that the biggest hits to be associated with the label could be clasified as garage-y. There's all sorts on Soma and its associated labels. Bobby Vee's first record was on Soma, as was the original version of the classic Country music 'truckers anthem 'Six Days On The Road' by Dave Dudley (in which he sings about 'taking little white pills and my eyes are open wide' Been there, took those....)

There are a bunch of Polka albums on Soma and a lot of local humourous albums. And that's just scratching the surface.

What there aren't a bunch of on Soma are soul records. Guess black music wasn't big in Minneapolis until Prince rocked up...

Hands up anyone on here who has more than around 100 of these tracks on singles....

...guess that'll be just you and me, then, Sebastian!:yes:

Haha! :thumbup: Have never really counted... but just did and realised that I have 68 of those tunes on original 45s. :yes: :yes:

Another soul content nil record that was played as a wigan dross filler.

Nice to tap yer toe to with a pint, or soundtrack lockstock type deal, bus NS dancer? Pah!

Now that I've counted properly I find that I only have 96 (98 if you include the Blues Magoos and Amboy Dukes tracks that were album-only). Apologies for the exaggeration...:thumbup:

I can remember being so thrilled when I finally got a copy of Mouse on Fraternity about 10 years ago, one that enabled me to 'complete the set' from the original vinyl double after nearly 30 years of trying.

And I still think that the first side of the original vinyl Nuggets is one of the greatest compilatons of music that has ever been assembled by anyone, anythime...

Got this on the Terrific! label. Anyone else seen this? It has the The Gestures-Run Run Run on the flip. Frankford Wayne stamp in the run outs...

Same label as Don & Juan All that's missing is you? Thought it was NY-based reissue/bootleg label?

Lots of great sounds there but not too much rare in terms of getting them all if you feel like it, Gonn and the Bees aren't cheap but by rare garage standards not crazy tough. Now collecting the contents of Back from the Grave on the other hand...:thumbsup: Agree on the Seeds but have occasionally played out a female Brazilian version (Wanderlea) of it but def not at soul nights.

I see 'The Underdogs - Love's Gone Bad' on the Rhino CD....how did that happen? Motown owned surely?

Yes, it is Motown owned - but what;s that got to do with anything? Motown (or Universal) simply licensed it to Rhino, the same way that other companies licensed tracks to 'em for the box.

How do you think we would put most Ace, Kent and BGP CD's together without licensing?

A man of exquisite taste - in every department - is your Richard...:thumbsup:

Well I will have to agree with that ha ha...although I would prefer if he was more of a sky blue!

Actually, I prefer naz nomad's version of I had too much to dream..I love that lp :-) I'm sure I don't have to tell you who Naz Nomad really are :thumbsup:

...Perhaps they're not so rare now with the advent of eBay and the general affordability of flights to the USA - but when the original 'Nuggets' double came out that was most certainly not the case.

It's easy to say things like 'not much rare' with the benefit of nearly 40 years of hindsight working for you, but very few of these records were found in every used record store or junk shop or record list in 1973. You have my word on that...
