    The Standells made number 11 in 1966 with Dirty Water, an archetypal garage rock hit with its Stonesish riff, lecherous vocal, and combination of raunchy guitar and organ. While they never again reached the Top Forty, they cut a number of strong, similar tunes in the 1966-67 era that have belated been recognized as '60s punk classics. Garage rock may not have been a really accurate term for them in the first place, as the production on their best material was full and polished, with some imaginative touches of period psychedelia and pop.

    The Los Angeles band were actually hardly typical of the young suburban outfits across America who took their raw garage sound onto obscure singles recorded in small studios. They'd been playing L.A. clubs since the early '60s, with a repertoire that mostly consisted of covers of pre-Beatle rock hits. Drummer (and eventual lead singer) Dick Dodd had been a Mouseketeer on television, organist Larry Tamblyn was the brother of noted film actor Russ Tamblyn, and Tony Valentino was a recent immigrant from Italy. Gary Leeds (later to join the Walker Brothers) was an early member (though he was replaced by Dodd).

    The Standells' pre-Dirty Water history is a little vague and confusing; they recorded some ordinary albums and singles for Liberty, MGM, and Vee Jay, appeared in the movie Get Yourself a College Girl, and did a lot of television work (most notably a well-remembered guest appearance on The Munsters, where they did a woeful version of I Want to Hold Your Hand). There were flashes of gritty inspiration on early cuts like Big Boss Man and Someday You'll Cry, but the group didn't really hit their stride until teaming up with producer Ed Cobb, formerly of the clean-cut vocal group the Four Preps. It was Cobb who wrote Dirty Water, which marked quite a change of direction from their previous clean-cut image. In fact, the group didn't even like the song, which took about six months to break into a hit.

    Their image now considerably toughened, the group churned out four albums in 1966 and 1967, as well as appearing in (and contributing the theme song to) the psychedelic exploitation movie Riot on Sunset Strip. Cobb, in addition to writing Dirty Water, also penned their other most enduring singles, including Sometimes Good Guys Don't Wear White, Why Pick on Me, and Try It (the last of which was widely banned for its suggestive delivery). The group did write some decent material of their own, such as the tense Riot on Sunset Strip, and the psychedelic All Fall Down, which bears an interesting similarity to some of Pink Floyd's early work. Their albums were quite inconsistent -- in fact, one of them, consisting of covers of big mid-'60s hits, was altogether dispensable -- which makes it advisable for all but the truly committed to look for greatest hits compilations that selectively weed out the best stuff.

    The Standells never had a stable lineup; bass players were constantly leaving (John Fleck, aka John Fleckenstein, who was briefly in an early version of Love, held the spot for a while), and Dick Dodd went solo in 1968, the year they released their last single. Tower, as was the case with most of its artists, didn't apply intelligent long-range planning to the band's career, issuing too many albums at once. The group didn't help their own cause by issuing an awful vaudeville-rock single, Don't Tell Me What to Do, under the transparent pseudonym of the Sllednats. They didn't record after 1968, though the group dragged on in one form or another until the early '70s (Lowell George was even a member briefly). ~ Richie Unterberger, All Music Guide

    2:11

    In 1965, almost two years before recording their first hit, the Standells guest starred on the Bing Crosby Show. They played the part of the fictional Love Bugs. The group, at that time featured Larry Tamblyn, Tony Valentino, Dick Dodd and Gary Lane. They not only sang, but acted in the show. Bing showed that he was quite a 'rocker' when he performed Kansas City with the group. On set, when they were about to begin filming, Larry broke out in a Bingish White Christmas. The entire crew and cast fell down laughing. Bing said You're putting me on. Larry, who co-founded the group in 1962, continues to perform with the Standells today as keyboardist & lead singer.

  • Standells LIVE in Boston at 2004 World Series

    4:37

    Donated by Larry Tamblyn from his personal achieves, this is the very first appearance of the Standells at Fenway Park, Game 2 of the 2004 World Series. Group members included Dick Dodd, Larry Tamblyn, & Gary Lane.

    Some background information: Warming up in front of the group was Mr. Bloody Sock himself, Curt Schilling. Larry was stunned when he was contacted by the Red Sox on Friday, October 23rd at 3:00 PM PST to appear at the World Series. The following day, the Standells were on their way to Boston at 1:00 PM. It was one of the most exciting times in the history of the group. This video was specially edited by Larry meant solely for the members of the group, and strictly for archival purposes. Dirty Water is the 'unofficial winning anthem' for the Red Sox, played after every home win. After this performance, the Standells appeared at Game One of the ALCS playoffs in 2007, and lately were invited to the final World Series Game in 2013. It was pure pandemonium, says Larry.

    I'm going to tell you a big fat story, baby
    Aw, it's all about my town

    Yeah, down by the river
    Down by the banks of the river Charles
    Aw, that's what's happening, baby
    That's where you'll find me
    Along with lovers, muggers, and thieves
    Aw, but they're cool people

    Well, I love that dirty water
    Oh, Boston, you're my home
    Oh, you're the number one place

    Frustrated women
    I mean, they're frustrated
    Have to be in by twelve o'clock
    Oh, that's a shame
    But I'm a-wishin' and a-hopin', oh
    That just once those doors weren't locked
    I like to save time for my baby to walk around

    But I love that dirty water
    Oh, Boston, you're my home
    Oh, yeah

    'Cause I love that dirty water
    Oh, Boston, you're my home
    Oh, yeah

    I love it, baby
    (I love that dirty water) I love Boston
    (I love that dirty water) Have you heard about the Strangler?
    (I love that dirty water) I'm the man, I'm the man
    (I love that dirty water) Ow
    (I love that dirty water) Come on, come on

    BIO
    Larry Tamblyn (lead singer & keyboardist), John Fleck (bassist),
    Mark Adrian (guitarist & co-lead vocalist), and veteran drummer Greg Burnham.

    Best known for their hit Dirty Water, The Standells released a string of snotty, aggressive garage singles in the mid to late 1960s which are now rightly regarded as proto-punk classics. Sometimes Good Guys Dont Wear White, Why Pick On Me, Riot On Sunset Strip the songs of The Standells have been covered by everyone from Bruce Springsteen, Aerosmith and U2 to Spacemen 3, Minor Threat and a million 77 punk bands as well as many subsequent scene bands. - Pat Long

    The Standells are considered by many to be the godfathers of punk rock. The group was formed in 1962 by keyboardist and lead vocalist Larry Tamblyn and guitarist Tony Valentino. Larry created the name from Standing around booking agencies trying to get work. Originally the group was called the Standels (with one l), but was changed to the Standells spelling in 1963. The name was also lengthened to Larry Tamblyn and the Standells, as noted in the Vernon Joynson book Fuzz Acid & Flowers Their first recording, You'll be Mine Someday/Girl in My Heart, was recorded in 1963 and released in 1964 on Faro Records. Later that year, the name was shortened to Standells.

    Their first hit single on Tower Records Dirty Water reached #11 on the Billboard charts, #8 in Cashbox, and #1 in Record World. Other chart records include Sometimes Good Guys Don't Wear White, Why Pick On Me, and Riot On Sunset Strip., which is featured as the kick-off song in the new Rhino Records boxed CD set Where the Action Is.

    Prior to their success on Tower Records, the group was signed by Liberty Records and issued an album The Standells In Person At P.J.'s in 1964 (later re-released as The Standells Live and out of Sight). After having no success with Liberty they signed with Vee Jay in 1965 for two singles, one of which was produced by Sonny Bono Sonny & Cher. Cher did backup vocals on one of the songs The Boy Next Door.

    The group appeared in several movies, including Get Yourself a College Girl, performing their first Liberty recording The Shake and Riot on Sunset Strip, performing the films title song. The Standells also frequently appeared on television. The Standells guest starred as themselves in an episode of the The Munsters. They were also featured in an installment of The Bing Crosby Show, and as a nightclub band on an episode of Ben Casey. In addition to TV shows like Shindig, American Bandstand and Where the Action is, they were featured on Art Linkletter's House Party, debating moral majority broadcasting mogal Gordon McLendon who banned their recording Try It. McLendon deemed the songs lyrics to be obscene. (By all accounts, the Standells defeated him pretty handily.)

    Despite the references to Boston and the Charles River in Dirty Water, The Standells are not from Massachusetts. Nevertheless, Dirty Water is still played after every home victory won by the Boston Red Sox, Boston Celtics, and Boston Bruins as well as at Northeastern Huskies' hockey games. One would be hard-put to find either a sports fan or rock music lover in Massachusetts who had never heard of the Standells.

    The band still actively performs in concert. They appeared at Game 2 of the 2004 World Series as well as the first game of the 2007 American League Division Series at Fenway Park., where they sang the national anthem. Since the early 1990s Dirty Water has been the Red Sox unofficial anthem. More recently US performances include the Cannery Casino amphitheater in Las Vegas, the Hollywood landmark Amoeba Music, the EchoPlex, and the featured performers at the June Lake Loop Mountain Music Festival. Their 2010 six - nation European tour included knock-out performances in Madrid, Bordeaux, Rennes, Paris, London, Oslo, Berlin, Athens, and Frankfurt.

    Dirty Water is listed in the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame as one of the 500 songs that shaped Rock & Roll.. A biography titled Love that Dirty Water The Standells and the Improbable Red Sox Victory Anthem is currently available on Amazon.com, Barnes & Noble, Target, and in other retail outlets.

    Today, the Standells consist of original members Larry Tamblyn (lead singer & keyboardist), John Fleck (bassist), Mark Adrian (guitarist & co-lead vocalist), and veteran drummer Greg Burnham.
