"Surfer Freak" by RNA
This track is a
version of Rick
James' 1981 hit single "Super Freak". You may recall
M. C. Hammer used a sample of it on "U can't touch this".
RNA is a collaboration between Rick Wilkinson of Surf Report and Adrien Anthony of CHUM. Formed from the first letters of their names, RNA is also symbolic of Ribonucleic Acid, the part of DNA that splits off from the main helix, re-forming into new building blocks of life.
RNA chose Super Freak by Rick James, because it was something WAY outside the surf genre, and popular enough that it would still be recognizable when performed as a surf song.
