    Biography

    One of the most recognizable names in the annals of pop music history, The Monkees are an American rock and pop band originally active between 1966 and 1971, with reunion albums and tours in the decades that followed. The original line up was Micky Dolenz, Michael Nesmith, Peter Tork and Davy Jones. The group was conceived in 1965 by TV producers Bob Rafelson and Bert Schneider specifically for the sit-com series The Monkees, which aired from 1966 to 1968. The music was originally supervised by record producer Don Kirschner, backed by the songwriting duo of Tommy Boyce and Bobby Hart. The four actor/musicians were initially allowed only limited roles in the recording studio for the first few months of their five-year career as “The Monkees.” This was due in part to the amount of time required to film the tv series. Mike Nesmith composed and produced songs from the beginning, Tork contributed guitar work on the Nesmith-produced sessions, while all four contributed vocals on various tracks. They eventually fought for the right to collectively supervise all music output under the band’s name, acting as actors, musicians, singers, songwriters and producers. Inspired by the Beatles’ film “A Hard Day’s Night” “The Monkees” TV show was picked up as a series by Screen Gems TV in 1965 and the musical side of the project accelerated. Columbia-Screen Gems and RCA Victor entered into a joint venture called Colgems Records primarily to distribute Monkees records. The Monkees self-titled debut and second albums were meant to be a soundtrack to the first season of the TV show, to cash in on the audience. Within a few months of their debut album, music supervisor Don Kirshner was dismissed and The Monkees took control as a real band over deceptive musician credits and how the band was incorrectly marketed to the public. Their first single, “Last Train To Clarksville” b/w “Take A Giant Step,” was released in August 1966, just weeks prior to the TV broadcast debut. In conjunction with the first broadcast of the TV show on September 12, 1966, NBC and Columbia had a major hit. The first long-playing album, The Monkees; was released a month later; it spent 13 weeks at #1 and stayed on the Billboard charts for 78 weeks. Twenty years later, during their reunion, it spent another 24 weeks on the Billboard charts. After working on set all day, the Monkees (usually Dolenz or Jones) would be called into the recording studio to cut vocal tracks, As the band was essential to this aspect of the recording process, there were few limits on how long they could spend in the studioand the result was an extensive catalog of unreleased recordings. Following the TV show’s cancellation in 1968, the Monkees continued to record music until 1971, after which the group broke up. A revival of interest in the TV show came in 1986, which led to a series of reunion tours and new records. The group has reunited and toured several times since then with different line-ups (but always containing Micky Dolenz and another original member). Jones died in February 2012 and Tork died in February 2019. Dolenz and Nesmith remain active members of the group. The success of the show led to the actor-musicians becoming one of the most successful bands of the 1960s. The Monkees have sold more than 75 million records worldwide making them one of the biggest selling groups of all time with international hits, including “Last Train to Clarksville,” “Pleasant Valley Sunday,” “Daydream Believer,” and “I’m A Believer.” Newspapers and magazines have reported that the Monkees outsold the Beatles and the Rolling Stones combined in 1967, but Nesmith admitted in his autobiography “Infinite Tuesday,” that it was a lie that he told a reporter! If voted in this month, ROG will reissue their iconic debut album as a deluxe 2LP set with bonus tracks (several of which are unreleased mixes) and have lacquers cut from the analog tapes for the first time since 1966; creating THE DEFINITIVE version of this album since original release!

    Biography

    Louis XIV is an American rock band from San Diego, CA. Lead singer and guitarist Jason Hill, guitarist Brian Karscig and drummer Mark Maigaard formed the group in April 2003 while living in Paris. Bassist James Armbrust joined soon after. The band’s self-titled debut album was recorded soon after in a basement in the Spanish district in Paris on a 16-track tape machine. It was released in November 2003 through Pineapple Recording Group, a label started by Hill and Karscig. The album sold over 22,000 copies in the first six months of release, despite being only sold at shows, on the band’s website and in some independent record stores. The album became popular in the UK in 2004 after the band performed on the Jonathan Ross TV show one week after Oasis. The band also performed on the Mary Anne Hobbs show on BBC Radio 1. They were embraced by Distillers frontwoman Brody Dalle and Queens of the Stone Age frontman Josh Homme at the 2004 NME Awards. After the band returned to California, local radio stations began playing an unreleased song from the band’s website, “Finding Out True Love Is Blind.” This airplay led to the release of two simultaneous limited Eps. Eight major radio stations on the West Coast then named the single a top five song, leading the band to sign to Atlantic Records in late 2004. The band released a self-produced EP entitled Illegal Tender in January 2005, followed in March by their second full length album, “The Best Little Secrets Are Kept,” produced by Hill. The album spawned to singles, “Finding Out True Love Is Blind,” and “God Killed The Queen.” In 2005 NME called the band “music to flunk rehab to” and Rolling Stone and MTV named them as one of its top 10 bands to watch. In 2007 David Bowie and Alicia Keys asked the band to play their BlackBall charity event for Aids in Africa. Bowie cited Louis XIV as one of his favorite new bands in numerous Conde Naste publications. Hill and Karscig also sang on three songs on the Killers 2006 album, Sam’s Town. Louis XIV toured with the Killers between February and April 2009. The band confirmed that they were taking a hiatus on July 3, 2009 as Brian Karscig left the band and felt they “started to feel more like a business than a camaraderie and in that the music started to suffer and felt uninspired.” After performing a number of shows on their “Return of the King” tour in 2012 supporting The Killers, Jason Hill officially confirmed that the band decided to reunite.
