I've tried everywhere to find a copy of the Surftones version of this song. Does anyone have it?

I heard in a live recording Black Francis credit the song to Rusty Horton. Don't know anything about him or his time in the Surftones.

I downloaded it from kazaa
and another song (which was clearly not Dave Meyers and the Surftones)
so Cecilia Ann isn't the only known song
And I'm sorry Vilainde, but I really dig the Surftones version
great recording, great instrumentation
It starts with the same cymbal crash as the pixies' one

My name's Denis, damnit!
In fact I might not have the original Surftones version. Mine sounds like there's just a guitar and drums and the sound is quite poor;

It's been released on a CD compilation called "Surf Legends", I think. It's a very good original version.

Hi,

I'm Steve Hoffman, one of the writers of CECILIA ANN along with Charles "Frosty" Horton.

I'm so glad the Pixies found our little song on a CD compilation I issued at DCC Compact Classics called SURF LEGENDS AND RUMORS. I felt that our little "Surftones" song belonged on there as much as any of the other songs and I'm glad I put it on the disc. This whole PIXIES connection has been a dream come true for us; such a great band.

I recently mastered for CD a bunch of Frank Black demos and B sides. Watch for it soon.

Any questions you want to ask me about the song, feel free to here or come to my Forum at www.stevehoffman.tv

I'm excited that the PIXIES have reunited. I hear they knocked 'em dead at the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival!

"Steve do you have a record out?"


Actually, I don't. Our SURFTONES only recorded one song back then. But it has proved to be a goodie! Hey, maybe the SURFTONES can reunite just like the Pixies, heh. I wonder if Frosty Horton would be up for it?

By the way that is Frosty playing lead guitar and bass guitar on CECILIA ANN. I'm playing drums and rhythm gee-tar...

That's my foot wacking the Fender Twin amp with the reverb turned all the way up at the beginning of the song. Frank "borrowed" it for the Pixies version. :^)

What are the chances of that? One song and it gets covered by one of the greatest bands ever.

We only recorded one song with some crap for the B side. It cost a lot of money in those days to cut a record. My allowance was only like $5.00 a week in those days!

It totally blew me away when the Pixies called us up and wanted to cover the song. It's time for the Surftones to write another one!

yeah! Call me if you need any help

I actually play in a band with surf inspired sound. My newly bought EHX Holy Grail reverb pedal really helps, too. (Can't afford one of them expensive Fender amps... yet.)

I've downloaded it. It's a pretty good song. Can't understand why the Surftones didn't go on.

P.S.: There is an alt rock spanish band called Cecilia Ann.

That is so cool, Steve -- I have the "Surf Legends and Rumors" CD with Cecilia Ann on (and that song is the reason I bought it). Do you still have any contact with Frosty Horton? And as someone else asks, who's Cecilia Ann?

Frosty is still a great friend of mine. He works in Nashville and I talk to him a lot. We're still working on a follow up song, heh.

The origin of the song? I'll give you a hint: If you are a fan of the classical composer Eric Satie, give a browse through his works. You'll find the origin of our song in there....:^)

I read that Frosty is a well known Nashville producer -- he should be doing Frank's new Nashville album!

In my ignorance, I am blissfully unaware of Eric Satie, but I'll get right on the case... and that is an excellent quote from 'hec' ^^^ ...!

Another thing to remark. I've heard someone in this forum will name her daughter Cecilia Ann. I'm not sure about his name, but somebody would tell him about this topic.

My online friend (maybe the same person) plans to name his daughter Cecilia Ann. And I have a cousin named Ana Cecilia.
