The Revels - Comanche
1961 song "Comanche" has been featured on two soundtracks. It first appeared as the "Detoured Theme" in The Exiles. It was later included along with several other Surf music hits on the soundtrack of the film, Pulp Fiction (1994).
The group started in the mid-to-late 1950s as a high school band in San Luis Obispo, California called Gil Serna & The Rockets, before changing their name to The Revels in 1959. Although their instrumental style predated the 1961-65 era of surf music, their success came during that period.
They are usually considered a "pre-surf" band and were the original Central California coastal instrumental band. Other bands from the area later included the more popular groups named The Sentinals and The Impacts.
Another member, Norman Knowles, had offered to manage the Sentinals who had a hit with "Latin'ia". In addition to managing The Sentinals he wrote "Church Key" and "Intoxica".
