Where are the Monkeyzzz?

It's a shame what happened to the Monkeys.  They did some great pop mx.  They accepted the fact that they were commercial fabrication, an imitation, and all of them had a rough time dealing with it.  So, it all came to a HEAD, when they made this self-satire movie, which pretty much was their swan song.  But, they were so OUT-THERE on this, their trailers were just too avant-garde for audiences to be enticed to see a movie of such uncertainty and even threat, especially when the popular culture opinion was that anything the Monkeys did HAD to be bad.  The Monkeys were already personae non-grati.  In one sense, they were completely aware of this, and so they made HEAD partly as an act of rebellion, overlaid upon the pop/hippie rebellion the movie was emulating.

Here are 6 videos from Jack Nicholson / Monkey's, "Head," thus:

Pretty good songs, considering.  If I could get the soundtrack, via library, I would.

The NY Action TV trailer - a very chaotic, fast montage of the movie
