Here’s how this Frankie & the Pool Boys project came together–
After years of heavy duty activity, and for various adult reasons, Pollo Del Mar had to take a break. I was patient, then I got bored... Really bored, and itching to do something. I remembered the Zappa album “Rueben and the Jets”, where Frank took some of his Mothers’ songs and recast them as Doo-Wop songs. I thought, “Hey, I’ll take some old PDM songs and recast them as Surf Music.” Imagine that, Pollo Del Mar playing surf music!?!
Dusty came over and we did some recording, but I got bored working on old songs and some of those Pollo tunes just didn’t want to get squeezed into the surf mold anyway. So Dusty came over again and we recorded some new stuff. Then I thought, “Man, you know who would sound great on this song?” and I called them up and they said, “Yes” and it all started to come together. But, it wasn’t really a Pollo CD, and it wasn’t really not one either. Call it a “side project”, and, please, anything but “solo effort” – that’s the kiss of death!
So who really are “Frankie & the Pool Boys”? Just a bunch of teenage idiots without a care in the world. They have day jobs cleaning your pool, a night shift parking cars, fake I.D.s and an 8-Track. They’ve got a ‘72 Mustang that will be rolling any day now, a date with your daughter next Friday and big, big plans for the future.
