FANS of iconic ’60s group the Beach Boys have admitted defeat in their battle to stop them reforming.
The band’s iconic sound was a fusion of 60s surf, hippy imagery and a general sunny optimism that pretended the Vietnam war was fictional.
But now fans fear that any new material will be about how messed up the modern world is but how love is the answer, or how we used to be crazy in our youth, but being crazy can be good sometimes.
Fears have already been raised after tour organisers revealed that Brian Wilson ‘has written some new stuff about vegetables’.
A spokesman said: “Al Jardine has been playing around with autotune for some months now, he really digs it. Will. I. Am is interested in producing for them.”
Die-hard Beach Boys fan Susan Traherne said: “Everyone wants to see the Beach boys back to peak 1966 form, when Pet Sounds changed popular music until the next thing that changed it.
“Unfortunately, that’s not how the universe works, and what we’ll get is five elderly men in Hawaiian shirts, looking at their watches.
“We can only pray they are not working on something called Return to Kokomo.”
