NHT079: THE MONKEES – The Porpoise Song
Welcome to this weeks NEVER HEARD THAT.
Often when people think of THE MONKEES they think of the US TV show based around the comedic antics of a band that mimicked The Beatles but whose members did not actually write their own songs or play their instruments.
That particular label may have been close to the truth when they began but the producers unknowingly created a beast in so much as the individual members, employed for their acting, did have musical talent and got more and more involved.
What began as the representation of crafty pop songs, soon morphed into active involvement in the creation of experimental and diverse works.
Here is one track, and it is as psychedelic as the best of them.
I hope you enjoy this weeks NEVER HEARD THAT.
Cheers, Andrew Muecke
