John came to the studio with this song idea. It took some time to get the guitar parts right. I wrote the music for the chorus. This was the first time that I doubled the guitar track using this method. I recorded it once, then changed the sound slightly and recorded it again. Cool sound. The verse parts during the vocals don't sound as smooth as I had imagined but it is unique and this is experimental music.
if you are wondering what this song is really about, ask John.
This was one of the last songs recorded for our first album.
Lyrics by John Lister
You hit the monkee with the hammer, That’s what they said that you should do
It seems we must increase your dosage, before you neighbors seem to find
Monkee don’t want to die
You were feeling kinda dizzy, a new prescription kicking in
I saw you picking up the hammer, you looked at me I saw you wink
