The Dovers: She's Not Just Anybody / About Me
Miramar 124 May '66
(Santa Barbara, CA)
Ever wondered how jingle-jangling folkrock would sound like if you pointed a gun against the band?
This is how it'd sound.
The funny thing is that the band played the fuck outta that song quite willingly.
The Dovers has a dire catalogue (umm, 4 killer double siders..), not unlike their state-buddies The Human Expression. All very high drama, and all quite exquisite.
Not the punkiest band around, but punk isn't always what punk seems. I'll leave it at that.
