The Bob Crewe Generation – Music to Watch Girls By
A deep west coast groove for your music Monday. A rare time when Flamin’ Groovies layed down a straight blues riff – super chunky and a villainous rock star lyric to boot: “Got a woman, she’s my hopped up high school queen. She’s my woman, she’s a teenage love machine. ” Every father’s nightmare, really. Beware of rock bands. Off to work.
I dig Jerry Fuller’s “wall-of- sound light” production. (both kooky and groovy) Looks like Jerry only produced squares for the most part. I’m not judging, I’m just sayin’. Arizona lyrics are a gasser – “strip off your pride you’re acting like a teeny-bopper run away child” Mark sounds like a Fox News anchor for the most part. He’s not too fond of hippies. After hearing Doves and Fleet Foxes over the weekend – gonna have to throw up some Glen Campbell real soon. I dig ‘Spaghetti Western’ pop. This one’s for Richy and Dennis.
