Here they come. . .In Monkee Music, Andrew Hickey, author of The Beatles In Mono and The Beach Boys On CD, examines the music of Micky, Mike, Davy and Peter from their early bubblegum pop hits with Last Train To Clarksville and I'm A Believer, through their reinvention as a self-contained band with songs like Pleasant Valley Sunday and Daydream Believer, and their psychedelic masterpiece Head, and on into their reunion albums Pool It! and Justus. This book contains analysis of every studio track the Monkees ever released, and is a must for any Monkee Maniacs.
I write. I write two very different types of books, though mostly they're non-fiction. The first type (like my books on the Beatles and the Beach Boys) are in-depth musical analyses of pop music.
The other books I write (like Sci-Ence! Justice Leak!, Four Stories About The Singularity and my upcoming examination of Grant Morrison's Seven Soldiers) are about the playful exploration of ideas. They're often using criticism of comics, books or TV as a starting point, but the books are as much about the nature of consciousness, or cybernetics, or Liberal politics as they are about Batman or Doctor Who.
I recently published a very short chapbook, on Kindle only, for 99 cents, Four Stories About The Singularity. This is my first published work of fiction, and contains four short-short science fiction stories.
I'm also a member of the band The National Pep, whose two EPs can be bought from Amazon in MP3 form.
