"The? Pandemic has meant no twenty twenty tour, but you can still hear his and Michael Messerschmidt's. From the comfort of your own confinement, their album called the monkeys live Mike, and Mickey show was taped last year and is available on itunes and spotify. Their sound and the love from the audience is as strong as ever, but starting from just playing a band member on TV, it took Dolan's time and hard work to build up his skills I had about a year, and I studied very very hard, and I practice very very hard. It was rock and roll just four four time for the most part we rehearsed diligently. A David Winters speaking of west side story was the director of our first state show. And all of a sudden one day. They said your first GIG is Hawaii. Because it bombed. It's no one would know many miles off the coast of the United States no Internet. Berry nuclear waste yes S. was US nuclear. Good name for group. Turns out. We did pretty good. There's a live in sixty seven. CD, which was not recorded. To be a record. It was some I think. The sound guy was just holding microphone up in the air to captured, but it's not bad. There's only three of us playing you know is Mike Peter Nye Davey, just doing percussion enforceable? But it was a trio was a power trio, and Peter would play the right hand. He would play keyboard melody and on left. He play Keyboard Bass. Mike Muth always put it like. When we went on the road, it was like Pinocchio became a real little boy. and. There's a lot of truth in that. And how'd you feel back then where you happy? How do they feel? Were they happy with? The event or the monkees couldn't tell I I don't want to speak for Thrim. Might Nasmyth I know and it's well recorded. He wanted to play and sing a lot more. He'd been brought into the. Situation had no idea what series was all about this? He said I want to sing in play and rotten songs. And he did not have a chance to do that initially eventually. And that's when we had the palace coup prompted by him. What Year did that happen? I was sixty seven. I want to say around the time of the live show in Hawaii. Just after we had a palace coup mainly because Mike said we can do this. Pinocchio can become a little boy. He was frustrated and I. Don't blame him. How'd you feel I didn't care one way or the other? I was having a great time and I loved singing. It ended up that I was I think I ended up doing the most of the lead vocals kind of by default. Mike had a very does still has a very wonderful country western. Must has some one. De I love that Song have a beautiful. Yeah. We do that in our show, he and I. Peter. Could play like. Seven instruments David Gray singer, but definitely the crooner Broadway. Kind of Tony Newly. Yet I read somewhere where they had decided the powers that be that your voice was more. The I was the only one that could go. Oh. You're really good at this. So you have the coup, you get Kirschner. You're doing your own thing. Yeah, does everybody sensed that? It's better and everybody's happy. Eventually they do well I can only speak. For Myself. Yeah. During that period I had I guess you'd call it an awakening or something because up until that point we had I'd been ensconced on the set from seven o'clock on the morning of makeup until eleven o'clock at night where I would be brought into in arsia studios. To record two or three lead vocals a night because they wanted so much material show during the record at night, guy had to say needed so much material because they wanted to new songs for every episode. And so Boyce and Hart and Carole King and an all these people are pumping out massive amounts of material and Carol come over to my house. I'd go over to Diane Hildebrand or or Boyce and hard, and and to routine the stuff, and then go on studio, and just blow it out eleven ten eleven o'clock at night, and that went on for months because they needed so much material. This material that is still in the can that we have not released. We released an album two years ago. Called Good Times. One of the songs me and Magdalena written by Ben Gilbert from death cap acuity. Is Number Seventy six. On the billboard, hot, one hundred for the entire decade on this album called good times very proud of that, so anyway I'm in the studio. Or on the set. Basically twenty four seven, but I'm only twenty one years old so. I'm just taking it for what it is. I mean I was had been brought up to be A. Actor entertainer and you show up at seven for your makeup Maurel. Call and you do your job and you got who sold Judy Garland. Thing now. Let me ask you that meaning. You're twenty years old and you're grinding this out. What was your life like? Did you have a life? Oh absolute meeting had a wonderful right I, actually had a wonderful again I was used to it. I had a lot of this series when I was ten so I well knew what I was getting into. It was almost like home for me. Because when you're ten twelve thirteen years old in your. In those are very formative years, and I was on the set with my mom and a bunch of smell electricians. And so I went back to high school, and that was abnormal for me I was like fish out of water until I got the monkeys, which is only a few years later when I went to the. Interview for the monkees. At screen gems. The same guy was on the gate that had been there when I was ten years old circus play only ten years later. This was home to me. I breathed a sigh of Relief Being on a set. You're comfortable there Oh. Yeah big time. Because before that I was on my father set. When he was doing movies for. Howard US I didn't have to adapt. Sell into it and win and win. The show ends zero thought for you to say I'm done with music though I don't want to go back to acting or no. Were you now in your soul a musician? No, I was up for the FAWNS. And it was between me and Henry. Winkler I. Don't know if he's ever told you the story. Was a mid season replacement just after the monkees and I was up Burton.
Desert Island Recordings - Iron Curtain Innocence by Bobb Trimble
"As idiosyncratic and hyperbolic as we absolutely always are. We certainly are not the only Bob Trimble apologists in the realm of music writing a quote from the Private Press Bible. Acid archives starts with this description by Aaron Molinski on Bob Tremble. I will make the bold claim that Bob Trimble's to albums are the best self released albums not just of the eighties and not just the psych genre but possibly in all of rock. Bob's music is able to bring a listener into a new and bizarre world in mere seconds while both his first album and his second harvest of dreams our other worldly masterworks of detached Psychedelia today with to focus on the first. There are so many amazing private press albums that are true. `Isolation Records Nineteen Eighties Iron Curtain. Innocence is a perfect example for this case study because of its utterly unique sound and the decent amount of information available about the record which helps us a lot. It's a story that can be told with realistic honesty whereas so many other private press record just rumors and tall tales. In the beginning Bob Dribble owned just three rock and roll records the Beatles second album more of the monkees and dot records oldies collection featuring the Classic Sea of love by Phil Phillips. These record carry a weight that would mold trimble sound the Beatles buoyant harmonies the Monkees Mirth full melodies Phillips's soul-stirring reverb growing up in central Massachusetts. Trimble would eventually play in bands in high school and would end up on the outskirts of Forster's worm town scene which was primarily known for punk music. Trimble worked at his dad's bicycle shop in poured all his money into studio recordings and eventually into getting his records pressed Iron Curtain. Innocence started its journey. When Trimble wrote a song that he thought would make for great single one mile from Heaven. He firmly believe it would be the track that brought him recognition. It was also one of the first songs he'd ever written. He went to a nearby studio called country. Thunder sound and recorded a couple of versions of the song a longer and more complete version and a shorter more radio friendly version. The song he recorded for the B. side was called killed the hands of an unknown Rockstar. When Trimble received the completed forty five. He was disappointed with a hollow tinny sound and decided not to release it dismayed he thought about hanging it up and stopped recording for about a year stating. I just didn't think my songs were original enough and different enough boy howdy. He came back with a redefined vision of originality. He went to a couple other studios and recorded an album's worth of material iron curtain. Innocence was recorded without a band. Despite the violent reactions being credited on the record sleeve is just Bob with a couple of the studio engineers helping out on Bass and drums the recording is rudimentary and Lo fi. But at the same time it is distinctly layered with Beatles soundtracks and sprinkles of Mug embedded throughout. The engineer seemed to be excited to fully humor all of the bizarre studio request as a break from their normal home desires of the usual patrons where the drums are obviously vanilla. The Guitar is very distinct. For young. Inauspicious musician Trimble. Truly had a remarkable guitar sound that is fully realized in instantly recognisable which is certainly an exception from the typical boilerplate instrumentation and most private press records. Hell even a lot of the major label stuff too for that matter. Triples voice is without question the most enticing factor on the record a Martian Siren. Song that has a exotic glassy feminine presence. That soaks a room in dizzying desperation. Reality Tearing beautiful for certain but also very cold it's much closer to Marc Bolan. Warbling as he's using his feather boa to restrict his air pipe during auto erotic fixation or severe trying his hand at opera than it is to any of his beloved sixties Silky vocalist. The lyrics reek of loneliness. But in a clove smoking teenage poet sense more than a man at the end of his rope. Tired tropes and tiny fragments of generic psychedelic. Forgeries are present but still packing a motive punch when joined with Eleftherios. Voice and the scintillating guitar originally called World of Lies Trimble settled on the title Iron Curtain. Innocence as a on the ever presence of the Cold War a theme. That never seems to come up in the actual lyrics. Trimble had five hundred. Copies pressed bought the first three hundred and disbursed them as best he could. By hawking them at local record shops getting them in the hands of college radio deejays and giving them to friends and Family

Well he coulda but Toss your keys in with your president to Saturday that I ever probably spice things up. Here's either everybody brings to gaffes. One gift is worth a lot of money and one gift is worth very little money and then you build a big bonfire in the middle of the room and everyone has to pick one of the gifts. Yes and the other one Aranda gets thrown into the bonfire. Only diversity brought the president's nose. Oh that's good. What about something with an element of danger? Ooh Ooh what about a deadly creature for example. Like that what about just a fight to the death where say you have thirty people and you only have twenty nine gifts. That could be refund. You could go with a classic that are not used to try to employ lladro tickets. Because you don't know how good of a gift it is or how bad it's just a scratch it's your luck of the draw shredding your gift just and it sounded like you were trying to start a chant at a sporting event tickets.

Help me brothers. How do you convince my parents? That a tasteful figurine of Victor Nikiforoff from my favorite anime. Yori on ice is more important than socks or an ugly Christmas sweater. The title of that show is stylized with an exclamation point in there. And Jesse I have to thank you for the really voicing that I'm a professional griffin. I think that what you do in your hand over the list. It's only got one thing on it. And that's the figuring Victor Nikiforoff and then when they're like no you just stand your ground and you don't take the lissack if they try to get you anything else. You build a bonfire looking.

There's a great movie about this called Jingle Bell rocks about the vast loads of Christmas music that have not become wildly overplayed over the years. And if you did a little deeper. There's some fantastic Christmas music holiday music. Well however you want to slice it that is out there that has not been just like done to death. That's still very excellent.

I want you to be mindfully president in this segment. Thank like you. I'll tell you what they're not blasting over the PA.. Barnes and noble is traditional. Nearly Ancient Christmas hymns give some of those going in there. I'm talking about these five stanza babies you can also good deeper into the the classics to get some of the virtues is that maybe we don't always get to dear. This is an actual verse. I was recently reading Larisa Jingle Bells this is an actual verse. Oh it gets wild a day or two ago the story I must tell l.. I went out on the snow and all my back I fell a was riding by a one horse open sleigh. He laughed as there. I sprawling lie but quickly drove away. What uh-huh cruel America's funniest home video in the middle of Jingle bells all these years and nobody anyways merry Christmas that's how Dr Atkins Diet? That's not funny. It is the justice kind of ooh. Here's something from Santa's future stepson. Was Mommy Really Kissing Santa Claus or was it just their partner dressed as Santa. Last last year I listened to the holiday classic. I saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus and had a realization that the reason daddy didn't see Mommy tickle. Santa was because Daddy was Santa. When I brought my findings to my friends they said I was wrong and it really was Santa that Mommy had smooch above his beard so snowy white who is Mommy Kissing Santa Real and a home wrecker or his? Mommy just into Santa play. I think kidding no I can't say definitively whether Daddy is Santa but I think we can all agree Santa is daddy thank you. Griffin has hit upon the possible symbol. Third option here. Santa Claus is Your Dad Song. Oh this saying internet sex way but sexy. See all manner there in a sexual manner. That's possible San is a major daddy. We can all agree on this. There's no argument here. I'm saying the song from the perspective of a Fred Claus Orin Arthur Christmas and Arthur Christmas. Thank you travis. Who finds out that he is in fact Santa's son? Oh okay okay. Here's the pitch I call the movie. I saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus Boy doesn't know his father's father's never been around. Oh what's that his father. Santa Green Light Green Light Green. Green light on thinking Fifteen Mil Get back to me and let me know what you think was green light. Green light green light a series of green lights and different media. Yes ask film. Television full motion video gaming. It was filmed television at McDonald's toys. Did you all know that a live action version of this. This film was adapted in two thousand. Two starring Connie CELICA and Corbin Bernsen. Swear God they did a whole movie. Eight blows my mind to even consider that this on that it's not the person dies after a boy seabed in Santa Claus suit kissing his mother. He thinks the real set of wants to replace father so he goes to prank war with them. How does that last longer? Go say one prank. Are you kidding me. That's a verse of the Song. I hadn't heard. Yeah Man I will say this Santa Claus when he does his job in your house makes himself vulnerable pretty much the entire time. He's in there. Yeah I mean his ingress is a pit pit of fire. There's a lot of easy ways to kill Santa. I've thought about this a lot. Strange note to end on. But here's something I'm from distressed in DC last year when flying home. I was stopped airport security because I had a wrapped gift in my carry on bag after they're being cleared as no threat to national security. I remarked to my girlfriend that it was weird. They stopped me for that. She said everyone knows. You can't bring a wrapped gift through security ready. I disagree my question is why aren't wrapped gifts allowed. Surely they can still see through them with their x ray machines emphasis mine. I'm not using lead lined gift. Wrap please help me understand so I can put this behind me are they checking are are they checking the wrapped gift carry carry on. They explicitly do say that. Okay good I mean this is the same sort of organization that thinks the pouches of Apple. Sauce I try to bring onto. The plane is actually two guns. So let's not start bringing reason into it now. I think the reason that the. PSA doesn't like it is they see and they think. Oh.
"monkees" Discussed on Bullseye with Jesse Thorn
"I have a clip from The TV show the monkeys appease and it's from episode called the monkees. Watch their feet in which You make are abducted by aliens. Classic muggy storyline. So we're about to hear you you are on a you've been blamed beamed onto a flying saucer you are then then cloned by the blues blue skinned captain and his assistant. Then you're evil. Evil robot double is unleashed back into the world to spy on the other monkeys. Peter Tork and Michael Nasmyth. Let's take a listen isn't aspe sheep over that most powerfully persuasive argument of his face. Elliot what does the spaceship look like. I don't know I know so on before. And how do you know it is patient is right man. Probably the driving recognize aliens. Take note of strange behavior next thing. I'm hearing enemy corners. They have Monica destructors here. Do you also insufferable tortures here on Earth. They tear off a Ted definitely not ear. Put the head back on the body. I don't know how it stays alive. Make you eat toys. You just say one. What will you actually very strange? You know I'm not asking strange. I'm acting perfectly normal. There's nothing about me is a lot of nonsense for a television show in the mid. Nineteen Sixty Ole boy. A lot but Interesting you should say that if you look back and I've studied studied it. I've done lectures now. People have asked me you know for years in what was it. How was it? Well how did it happen it. It wasn't that If you look back at it really wasn't that I what's the word I'm a I guess surprising because the producers had made some very clever early on decisions when they were doing their Bible which is the essence of of a show for starters and funding enough? I was just listening into an interview you did with Eric. Idle who I know. I've known for years. And he was talking about Monty Python's and he mentioned how the humor was not topical. The monkeys humor was not topical nor was it satirical and I think that's one of the reasons why the monkeys and Monty Python and I love Lucy other shows Stand up for so long. Because they're not topical and that was a conscious decision. Asian that the producers made. We're not gonNA talk about anything in the news this week. We're not GONNA do anything to satirical It was a another friend of mine. A guy named John Lennon Oak. Did I drop that name. I'll grab it got WHO said the monkees were like like the Marx brothers? And if you look at the monkeys show of the project the whole thing as this sort of half hour marx brother's musical movie on television. Everything makes a whole lot more sense if you think of an old marks for this movie where everybody ran around and danced and sang hang and had a plot and there was a bad guy. Good guy and people were doing silly stuff and you know that scene you just played could have been right out of a marksman there's movie we were screened greened Marx brothers movies during the preparation process for instance so it was not coincidental. I mean there was some thought. Put put behind this that the show would not be topical. It would not be sterkel because that would date very quickly And also so a very important point I think is that the monkees were never successful. It was the struggle for success. Because that that I think and guess what endeared it to all those kids around the world was that we represented all those kids in their garages in their basements in their kitchen then wherever in their garage trying to be the Beatles and that is essentially what the monkey show is about this band that wanted had to be the Beatles and on the television show we never made it. It was always the struggle for success that that I think is like essay one of the things that endeared it to so many people. Did you want to be Lovable Marx brothers Ian goof-balls calls. Or did you want to be cool rockstars when the possibility that you actually may be could be cool. rockstars Came up in my case it was. I woke up one day and I fell asleep one night as a working actor entertainer singer singer musician. 'cause I had to do all that and I woke up in the morning as a cool rock star and I was like Whoa. When did that happen? it's kind of exemplified in his story. I've told a bunch of times During the showing on the air in September number of twenty six us what what. What century are we in the in the In September of sixty six and We've been filming since June July and recording of course all the time Dan Night I was doing most lead lead singing so I would go on set from seven in the morning to seven at night and then have dinner and then go into the studio and record vocal sometimes two or three a night and Because they needed so much material for the for the television show in one one And then that that Christmas that This time that you're sixty six. They gave us a hiatus to Show been on the air since September. We'd heard that it was doing very well. We'd heard that Clarksville had gone to number one but we're working twelve fourteen hours hours today in those days of course without social media and all that other kind of stuff you know. Get my car in the parking lot and drive home. Never never seen anybody never interact. Fans didn't know where we were found how to find us in a few just went home and that Christmas I am was GonNa drive up to San Jose where my parents and family lived time with my Christmas presents and have about a week or ten days. Whatever effort was often a little hiatus so I get my little Christmas list together? I get in my car and drive down to the local mall there in the Valais. Okay in Los Angeles where I chopped every year for decades in with my family and I get out of my car with my little list and I walk doc through the glass doors and all of a sudden people come running at me screaming and I thought it was a fire and I'm holding. Open the door going going slow down. Don't run don't panic. I literally did think it was a fire and they were running at me and I I had leave. I was really pissed off. I had to go and give my Christmas list brody and have him. Do the shopping got in my car and had to go home. Well that that was the first inkling that I had of of what was going on. I mean it sounds neat but it also sounds hard all it was a lot of work. Oh boy each episode took three days and then start the next one the very next day and then we started rehearsing for The the concert tour because they obviously had in mind that that if this thing happened they they wanted us to be able to play or they would not have cast people that could they wouldn't have bothered. They would have just cast actors and done at all everything else You know kind of old school. They clearly had in mind that they wanted a hoped. That if if the thing happened if if the show went that we would Go on the road and and record I mean and soy and perform and sure enough you know we did and we are. Our first concert was in Hawaii and Honolulu at the Taurean. I don't know how many thousands of people were there and I think that their plan was as well if we do it in Hawaii and it doesn't work no one will know. We'll have three weeks before. News mainland. Yes right but it did in And it was huge. Mike Nasima that I think put it very very succinctly One once he said you know at that point. Pinocchio became a real little. Oh Boy Mickey Dolan's thanks so much for being on Bullseye. It was great to get to talk to well. I hope that was okay for you guys. Thank you the snow. Did you might like to know. He's learned way somebody's face this Mickey Dolan's the monkeys holiday album is called Christmas party. It's out now. Here's one more song from it called. I wish it could be Christmas. Everyday is a cover of the nineteen seventy-three Glam.

"And they did it twice. And that's why I mean that is one of the reasons why the Monkees tour exploded, the eighty six union tour was explosive. I think but we can their biggest tour in America in the summer tour that year. Yeah. I read some reports that you guys were always getting along on that tour. There's some tension that didn't want to be on stage during the new songs and everything that there was there was some stuff going on there. But you know, the most important thing is that. The man was on stage. He was on stage for that that tour was fabulous success. And you know, you magic what that would have been like if it'd been Mickey and Peter would have been nearly as big don't think. Right. So David was also skill in his cutest mode, Davey stayed pretty cute to the end, really. But the robbery of the sixties maybe not quite as strong among the four of us. And then among the three of us later. There was always varied levels of respecting ration- and affection and friendship. Did you hear the special on George Harrison the other day and joy said you know, to the outside world, I was one of the Beatles in the Beatles were great big thing. And I was one of inside the Beatles. I was alone. Right. So in any group as we find out when we did there were varying degrees of affection, and comradeship and respect and the Monkees were different. You know, you can't say yes or no. And you one thing like. That did the same proportions of feelings carry over into the eighties choice. Yeah. Just about. I'm you Mickey's always been very easy to talk to Dedi has always always shown flashes of great, insight and intelligence and wit and heart. Michael is always been hard working and talented and funny, and I've been whatever anybody says I've been and it's always been that way. It's just that doesn't change much. You know, your personality is pretty much luck input early. Peter talking to Andy green and love his slight shade of flashes of brilliance. But any green rub Sheffield? You were going to talk about the experience of seeing Peter torque play in recent years, and that was like, and what turns out to be his final years. So the band reunited was I and twenty eleven before Davy died in before nez came back. I missed that to her rob slot at the beacon. Yeah. There was the forty fifth anniversary tour all three of them were on fire. It was Davies last tour. He was fantastic. You know, like Davey his do. He was doing the boo glue during she hangs out, and it was absolutely ridiculous, and Peter Tork something that he did, you know in the twenty eleven tour which didn't have Nesbitt or the twenty thirteen tour that didn't have Davy Jones..

"Which I think Peter Tork co wrote from headquarters. Way too. No. I thought we'd here. Going to play some audio of Peter talking about the Monkees reunion. But I explained what happened there. What led to the revival of the monkeys all sort of the twenty year rule of nostalgia that nineteen eighty six all their fans the age that they wanted to look back and a young MTV was desperate for programming. So they the show back on and the ratings skyrocketed, and they got offers to go back on the road, and they were playing arenas again. It was an astounding thing was that your first experience of the Monkees was when it got back on MTV, or did you some glinted earlier than grew up on monkeys reruns, which you know, like the Brady bunch a staple of seventies UHF stations Google that UHF sticks in every town. There were the monkeys and the Brady bunch were on in the afternoon after school in that slut. It was four pm on channel fifty six was the monkeys. So interesting because I grew up the nothing to music, but I grew up just after the US F era, and the was the chef dial on TV, but couldn't get. Anything on it? So if I have been able to get anything apparently would have been monkeys reruns. Yes. And the monkey runs and sometimes they do double headers against also like that afternoon. Ten fifty six much better than channel thirty eight. I will go to my grave arguing this with absolutely nobody. But my sister's remembers, but the Monkees the music was so good. And I was always something that the show shocking that that they were great comedians, which is what they're hired for. But they were also great singers and great performers and that the songs that they got research. Great. So remember hearing stuff like going down or star collector, and it's just mind blowing that I was exposed to this fantastic music and torque very much like the Ringo of the TV show. He was the kiddies first favourite, you know, he was your first favorite monkey and for my sisters. That was the first record. I ever bought the records were often sold in made for TV offers. So my sisters, and I we pulled in two dollars. Each.

He was and he was very good to his fans. There were a couple of times very few times in the thirty plus years that we've got to see them that we got to have a picture with him. And I remember we were in Saratoga back in two thousand and eleven was the last tour Davy Jones was on before he passed away. And the autograph lines were going, and you could see he was fumbling with their cameras. All right. Right. Stuff here. And he says the next, you know, the next group that comes up here. And how does this picture, right? They get a hug, and it was my sister. And I took a picture with her, and he hugged her. He was just very sweet. And so nice. And you know, I called him.

And I drove him over there. And we were chitchatting the entire way which wasn't that far. But when we got there, I just told them, you know, I'll be out here waiting for you guys when you get done.

I can't remember his name. Michael nez myth. Yes. He wasn't with them. And what I ask why they said he really doesn't like doing live performances. Oh is that right? Wow. It's old.

"monkees" Discussed on Deep Dish Radio with Tim Powers
"Into a music group. Manufactured machine called the monkeys which which began in officially in nineteen sixty six where four actors actors. Musicians were hired by by Columbia entertainment screen gems to put together a television show. They were not an existing band before they came together. They were four guys hired to play a part and and it became not only television show that lasted for two seasons, but also a string of records alive act. Nine top twenty hits nine top twenty billboard hits spanning from nineteen sixty six to nineteen eighty seven. The band in its current incarnation, whether it's two men or three men. Is selling out. Live shows all over the country right now, in fact, gearing up as I record this in September of two thousand eighteen releasing a Christmas album folks. It's kind of interesting to see how their record label is supporting them, and their fans are supportive. We will hear from one of the most visible monkeys fans out there to explain a little bit about what they are, but in the meanwhile, one of the things that I want to accomplish here today is to play some music that you haven't heard before. Perhaps if you are familiar with the monkeys inferior familiar with any of the top twenty hits several of them went to number one, and I'm not going to play any of those. What I'm going to do is dive into some of the album cuts very, very deep into the album cuts. And I think I'd like to start out by playing some cuts where these guys who were actors. Hired to play a band actually formed a real band and played their own instruments, which is Sieving, sadly maligned for and historically inaccurate. We'll get into that.
