Name: The Beach BoysTrack name: California Girls

Hometown: Hawthorne, California

Who? At the time… Al Jardine, Bruce Johnston, Mike Love, Brian Wilson, Carl Wilson and Dennis Wilson.

Why now? This early slice of Beach Boys swell was released 50 years ago today, apparently inspired by both cowboy film soundtracks, Bach and acid. Wilson is the subject of a biopic, Love & Mercy, which opened at UK cinemas this weekend. Tune into The Q Show on Absolute Radio from 10pm (BST) tonight (12 July) for a look at the film. Meanwhile enjoy a half-century of Californian Girls with this classic clip.
