Modcast #518: Just Monkeeing Around

The Modcast turns into a Monkeecast this week. Top to bottom this show is all pre-fab four. Related at least. The Monkees were constructed no doubt. But what a construction.

This modcast is a first. In 16 years I've never done a show focusing on just one band. The closest I ever came was back in 2020 when I did a whole modcast featuring bands that sounded a lot like The Style Council, Modcast #459: In The Style Of. But this one is different. This focuses on the Monkees music and you'll get a few of their lesser known tracks along the way, as well as some of the members later solo material, and then some interesting covers of Monkees songs and songs clearly inspired by and sampling the Monkees. So buckle up baby it's gonna be quite a ride. Let's go monkey around.

The Monkees -- Long Title Do I Have To Do This All Over Again (1970)
The Monkees -- Oh My My (stereo remix) (1970)
The Monkees -- Steam Engine (alternate mono remix) (1982)
