Our Daily Vinyl #8: The Monkees

It is a sad but true fact of life that I once derisively mocked anyone who opined how amazing vinyl was and how music just sounded better when played on a turntable. Now, in a somewhat ironic twist of fate, I’ve come to realize, well, it’s true.

I don't know about you, kiddos, but when I think of The Monkees I think of the too-cute-for-words TV series about the madcap mishaps of those wacky yet loveable bandmates. If
The Diamond Center's Kyle Harris has his way, though, we'll all be singing a different tune. Oh, and speaking of The Diamond Center, you can catch the hottest things in Richmond here in DC next Thursday, as part of the Bad Behaviour residency series over at Bella along with Creepoid and Sri Aurobindo. You don't want to miss any of them, believe you me. And now, Kyle's Monkees musings:

"The Monkees - Pisces, Aquarius, Capricorn, and Jones, LTD. - A good friend turned me on to this one when I was definitely not interested in the Monkees. I quickly changed my tune."
