The personnel on this record was Joep Verbeek and John Peate on guitar, Jeroen van de Sande on bass, and their first drummer Mike Rosema on drums. Surfvival of de onbeschofste (1995) saw a change in line-up with Joep Verbeek and John Peate quitting the band, Jeroen van de Sande moving from bass to guitar, and David Andriesse filling in on bass. On this record Albert Benier was added to play organ, and he wrote much of the material for this album. The sound on this record is more organ-based with several songs using that as the lead instrument. El rey del Surf is their only vocal song on Surfvival..., and is a Spanish language version of Trashmen's King of the Surf. After Surfvival of de onbeschofste the group has only recorded one song that has been released: 24 hours from Tulsa which was released on the surf-music tribute to Burt Bacharach That's new Pussycat! (OmOm Records, 2000). Their live-set mainly comprises songs from Surfvival of de onbeschofste with several numbers from Are you...
and songs they have written after Surfvival of de onbeschofste, and has seen little change after their prolific period. On January 6, 2007 they played their farewell concert in Geel, Belgium. http://www.the-apemen.com/ http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Apemen https://www.facebook.com/TheApemen http://www.discogs.com/artist/286017 http://www.reverbnation.com/apemen Read more on Last.fm.
