The Atlantics
Thursday 9 March 2000
Presented by Clinton Walker

The seeds of what evolved into the quartet known as The Atlantics were sown in the eastern suburbs of Sydney. Musically The Shadows and The Ventures were the group’s early heroes and this blending of American and British influences provided a foundation on which they built their individual style. Swept up in by the surf sound from the US, the most famous, and biggest, hit by the Atlantics was “Bombora,” a tune still recorded in the `90s by current surf bands.
