35 A New Monkees Album from How the Monkees Changed Television


This is the album. All these songs are written by people that
you’ve heard of. Like Rivers Cuomo, Andy Partridge, Ben Gibbard,
Noel Galagher. All famous, current rock-and-rollers who were
brought together by a producer who said, “If you could have lived in the ’60s and written
for The Monkees, what song would you have written?” and they all wrote a song that they
thought was particular to their tastes and so Ben Gibbard has actually been — a couple
of the tour dates her came in an sang with them, which is great. So this is him talking about that “before
The Beatles, before The Velvet Underground, before Punk or Indie Rock, The Monkees were
the first band that I truly loved.”They influenced so many of today’s modern day performers and
yet people keep forgetting them. So I think that’s important. “You Bring The Summer” was their first release
off that album and in a second I’ll play a little clip from it just for fun.
