Tiki Oasis, We are go for launch!
Tiki Oasis is the Class M hypergiant of the Tiki scene – the biggest Tiki Weekender in the solar system
The Space Age ran parallel to the Modern Primitivism of Tiki Culture. While technology propelled modern man to the moon, the common man celebrated isolated islander cultures that were equally unattainable.
Whether it was a World’s Fair or Disneyland’s Tomorrowland (1955), It seemed that the interest in other worlds in outer space was equally as intriguing as our curiosity of primitive cultures. All World's Fairs had "International" exhibits displaying Exotic and Primitive cultures alongside the most modern aspects of technology. Similarly, with a short walk across Disnelyland's Main Street, tourists travelled from the advanced technologies of Tomorrowland to the wilds of Adventureland's Polynesian garden - The Tiki Room and the Jungle Cruise. In 1947 the world listened and read about the Kon Tiki raft sailing across the South Pacific toward the most remote island on earth - Easter Island. Ten years later the Western world watched as Russia’s Sputnik sailed into outer space to begin The Space Race. Soon thereafter Apollo jettisoned the first men to the moon. The Telstar satellite (1962) inspired Joe Meek to pen the #1 Surf instrumental tune of the same name using cutting edge recording techniques (the single was backed by B Side “Jungle Fever”).
From late 19th century Jules Verne Sci-Fi voyages to the perfect future of The Jetsons (and their primitive counterparts The Flintstones); From Fritz Lang’s Futurist inspired Metropolis (1927) to The Star Trek Enterprise's search for the final frontier, man's love of Modernism and Primitivism have run parallel in space (Mars and the Moon) as it has on earth (the remote islands of The Polynesian Triangle)
Captain James Cook desired to go “farther than any other man has been before”. He discovered many remote islands as well as sailing to Antarctica and being the first to chart parts of Alaska, the final frontier of the Age of Discovery. Ironically we ended up putting a man on the moon decades before we discovered the last tribes in the mountains of Papua New Guinea. Just as Captain Cook’s Endeavor sailed uncharted seas, Star Trek Captain James T. Kirk’s Enterprise took voyages into outer space to discover "strange new worlds, uncharted civilizations, and exotic people."
In 2015, we here at Tiki Oasis will take you on warp speed from the garage-rock primitivism of The Chocolate Watchband and the vintage style Exotica of Tikiyaki Orchestra to the Blast Off Rock from Earth's capitol's house band The Phenomenauts and those beings from another planet Man or Astroman?
To ensure a safe voyage we have have assembled a stellar crew of Space Cadets to lead you on your journey to the stars: Flight Engineer Danny Biederman; Command Pilot Don Preston; Mission Specialist Neil Norman; Educator Mission Specialists Duke Weiss and Jeff Chenault; Space Flight Participants Sven Kirsten, Richard Foss, Martin Cate, Will the Thrill, and Domenic Priore.
Pull on your jet pack and jump into the air; grab your raygun and become a space invader; or just relax poolside soaking in the sights and sounds of your own moonage daydream.
