“Hangin' 5” by The Deltones – 1963 clip from Bandstand

30 January 24

The greatest daggy surf song ever? Vocals from the Deltones. "Hangin' 5" was written by Ben Acton who was detective with the police force and a member of the Manly Surf Club (a surfing musical copper).

This clip has a false start but then kinda gets it together with a hodgepodge of Hawaiian surf, onshore Australian slop, and a stomp somewhere in Sydney – which was good enough for Aussie TV in 1963. 

* For our overseas readers/viewers, a “Malibu” is the nickname for a longboard in Australia – as it has been since 1956.
