Biography

The Centurions would just be another face in the early-'60s surf music crowd if not for the 1994 film smash Pulp Fiction, which plucked the group's "Bullwinkle Part II" out of obscurity for the soundtrack. Formed in the Newport Beach area of Southern California in the late '50s, the group did some recordings for the Shepherd and Del-Fi label, of which "Bullwinkle Part II," with its spooky, trebly bass and lead guitars, was the best. The band also cut some decent, if mostly generic, other sides for Del-Fi, powered by both guitars and raunchy saxes; the best of them, like "Bullwinkle Part II," made good use of minor melodies, reverb guitar, and throbbing bass lines. ~ Richie Unterberger
