Yeah... I've corresponded with the lead-singer on Twitter and he's very amazing....

Living Colour was the first "hard rock" group I liked in high school. Never knew that was a cover.

Are you referring to "Memories Can't Wait"? If so, that was originally composed and performed by the Talking Heads.

Lovin' Spoonful - I preferred 'Summer In The City' to 'Daydream'. Both hits sounded very modern for 1966.

In fact.. the Lovin' Spoonful were the original Monkees, but their record company prevented that from happening...

:) Yes I like that Who one, I remember getting into it a few years ago.

I don't know the story (& didn't know there was one :) ). But entirely plausible that The Lovin' Spoonful could have fulfilled the requirement to be 'The Monkees'.

Peter Tork had a vast resemblance to the Lovin' Spoonful bassist, Steve Boone, Mike Nesmith wore hats very similar to guitarist, Zal Yanovsky, Micky Dolenz was a singing drummer like Joe Butler, Davy Jones could somewhat compare to John Sebastian. This video is very "Monkees" to me: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Xa-ZGG2fFaE" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;


Here's another brilliant cover: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oeMhUNd439s" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false; (which was never officially released though).....

Interesting vocal to say the least on the Beach Boys 'You've Lost That Lovin Feeling'.

It was all Brian.... not just on all vocals, but instruments! People thought his voice deteriorated in the 70s, but never did... He apparently wanted to sound gruffier like his brother Dennis (and several contemporaries), that he forced it... His falsettos were still there whenever he elected to use it...

The studio version of The Bad Shepherd's cover of Shipbuilding (Elvis Costello, although better known as Robert Wyatt's cover) is fantastic, but its not on YouTube, so here's a live version

Yes that its Ade Edmondson.
