"Good Vibrations" is the debut album of the Party Animals and was released in 1996.
The Party Animals made their introduction on the video for the single "I Wanna Be A Hippy" by
Technohead. The clip featured three gabbers and a hippie. The producers Flamman & Abraxas discovered the four Stichting Nederlandse Top 40, "500 Nr. 1 Hits uit de Top 40", page 325, 9023009444 (Book in Dutch)] . Flamman & Abraxas remixed the single and because one of the original producers, Lee Newman, died shortly after "I Wanna Be A Hippy" became a hit [ [http://www.brainwashed.com/gto/history.html GTO/Technohead/etc. history] ] , they decided to continue with the singers as a new group. Flamman & Abraxas saw a potential for opening the mainly underground scene of gabber with this group by making the sound more pop oriented and thus introducing the new genre to a mainstream audience.
The album mainly consists of cover versions of existing songs set in a fast gabber beat. The remade songs were not only pop songs, but included songs like Sarin which is based on
heavy metaland Hakkefest which is based on a Russian opera with 200 bpm drums set underneath. The album turned out to be very successful in The Netherlandswith their first singles peaking at number one which makes them the first Dutch act to do so [Stichting Nederlandse Top 40, "500 Nr. 1 Hits uit de Top 40", page 330, 9023009444 (Book in Dutch)] The album was certified Gold [http://www.nvpi.nl/nvpi/pagina.asp?pagkey=60461 NVPI.nl] Dutch certification database Accessed November 4, 2006] and peaked at number 3 in the Dutch album charts.
