"When Del-Fi Records released the one and only album by The Centurians, they mistakenly gave it the exact same cover and catalog number as the Surfers' Pajama Party that is shown on your site... Needless to say, it was nearly impossible for anyone to order the Centurians album and they soon met the fate of so many other West Coast surf-rock bands (that is, until Quentin Tarantino and John Waters pulled tracks from the album for the films Pulp Fiction and Pink Flamingos, respectively.)"
