About The Castaways
The Castaways had a hit in 1965 with the Garage Rock classic "Liar, Liar," featuring the requisite wiggling keyboards and reverbed vocals. The song features some nasty guitar and a great falsetto in the refrain, giving it a Motown-as-interpreted-by-Frankie Valli-flavor. Apart from an appearance in a 1967 beach movie, the Castaways' career pretty much ends there. If it's the rugged sound of pre-punk Garage that you're looking for, the Castaways serve it up in an edgy little package with the added bonus of Soul-tinged pop savvy.
