The Revels - Comanche

Song

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 filmPulp Fiction (1994).


Artist

The Revels were an American rock band, associated with the 1960s surf music craze. Their most famous song was "Church Key".

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.

The Revels singles were collected on their sole album, Revels on a Rampage (1964). They also composed music for the soundtrack of the 1961 film The Exiles.

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".
