Too Much Monkey BusinessUniversal Music NZ
***Too Much Monkey Business is a collection of the fuzzy pop and garage nuggets that were recorded at HMV in Wellington between 1965 and 1969 with producers FRANK DOUGLAS, PETER DAWKINS and HOWARD GABLE. Expect much abuse of fuzz boxes and locally made Jansen amplifiers. THE BITTER END from the Hutt area of the Wellington region fire on all cylinders with the 200 mph version of this collection's title track, THE SELECTED FEW out-raunch The Pretty Things, and THE FOURMYULA get very very fuzzy with "if I Had The Time," while poppers THE SIMPLE IMAGE bring buzzy trouble to their rendition of "Grooviest Girl In The World." Additional tracks from THE TOP SHELF, AVENGERS, LIBRETTOS, BREAKAWAYS, MINORS, PETER NELSON & THE CASTAWAYS, SOUNDS UNLIMITED, MR. LEE GRANT, RETALIATION, and TOM THUMB. Edition of 300 copies with two-page insert.
