The Queers Cover The Monkees

New Hampshire punk legends The Queers have long worn their love of classic oldies on their sleeves. Joe Queer and crew have covered The Beach Boys, Tommy James and the Shondells, The Hollies, etc. for years, plus a lot of their originals have that classic sound. Somehow, they've never released an entire album of covers, but that will change next month. The first single off that album is a cover of The Monkees' "Valleri." It's not a song I knew just by name. Instead of the typical bubblegum pop Monkees song, "Valleri" is much more psychedelic, presumably from The Monkees' more serious period. The Queers take most of the psychedelia out of the song (most, but definitely not all) and strip it down into a crusty pop punk anthem. You know... they make it sound like The Queers.

You can listen to The Queers' take on "Valleri" below. Reverberation is due out September 24 on Cleopatra Records. It will also feature covers of "Love Potion #9," "The Kids Are Alright," "Deadman's Curve," and more. You can pre-order a copy here. For more on The Queers, check out the band's Facebook.
