The Monkees ?
Oct 28, 2010, 08:09
Hmm. I've been reading the excellent articles in the current issue of Shindig! re. 'Head', which I haven't actually seen !), although I adore Porpoise Song. A psych classic. However, I have never paid any attention to The Monkees in any other way re. the usual suspects: manafactured, didn't write or play on most of their own records, uncool blah blah.
I know 'they' produced some classic 60s pop, but that isn't necessarily enough to make me want to investigate further. I admit that I do suffer from the Serious Artist Syndrome, which I try to keep in check. So, am I missing something re. The Monkees or not. I have heard many people of sound taste champion them. Am I missing something ? If so, what should I check out?
