Is there a shortage of cover versions of songs by The Monkees ? A quick
search using my brain, rather than a search engine, can only throw up
(ho!ho!) the Sex Pistols doing '(I'm Not Your) Steppin' Stone.' Maybe
other punk bands heard that and decided not to compete. I remember
seeing the Purple Hearts during the Mod Spring of 1979 and they attempted the same song. Apart from that, nothing. Apart from
the Sex Pistols tonight, a lot. The Chefs, with Helen McCookerybook and
"24 Hours" and Scissor Fits 'I Don't Want To Work For British Airways".
It's from 1979. Contemporary enough for you ?
