    The Insect Surfers, an excellent surf band from a while back... saw them at The Milestone Club in Charlotte, NC in the mid-80's. Killer!

    Since most would probably consider spiders "bug-related," I'll point out that there was a New Orleans vocal group called The Spiders in the early 50s.

    Of more recent vintage: The Lime Spiders.

    One of the many Beatles knock-off bands, no doubt ficticious, who had albums released in 1964 to try to cash in with unsuspecting parents was The Buggs.

    And then there's the Australian band The In-Sect, who had a great punky song ca. 1965 called "I Can See My Love."

    then there is the infamous "Halo of Flies", from Minneapolis, late 80's on Amphetamine Reptile Records. There is a compilation of their tunes titled "Music for Insect Minds".

    I could kick myself for not snapping up all the 7" singles, etc. of The Insect Surfers that I saw back then. I even had a few that I've sold or traded over the years. Thier stuff is really hard to find now...:realmad:
