Track Of The Day: Django Django - 'Porpoise Song'


With Record Store Day happening in two day's time, I suppose I'd better cram in more RSD releases before the big day. Here's one from the brilliant Django Django, their first new material in two years. Excpet technically it's not, since the song is a cover. A cover of a Monkees track! Don't worry, it's a good one. Although best known as a made-for-TV boyband, the soundtrack to their 1968 movie 'Head' is regarded as a psychedelic classic in many quarters. I still haven't ever heard it, but one day my curiosity will change that. Django Django's version of 'Porpoise Song' can also be found on the upcoming 'Late Night Tales' compilation which the band have compiled. More info on that HERE.
