Marty and the Monks - Mexican Party c/w Mrs. Schwartz, You've Got An Ugly Daughterdotdotdot
artworkThis is probably a studio project. Its a-side is a gimmicky answer to Herman's Hermits' "Mrs. Brown, You've Got A Lovely Daughter," and the b-side is an instrumental that's kinda cool, but hardly essential.

Mexican Party dotdotdot
Surf (Instrumental)

This surf song uses behind the bridge plucking well, like in "Rockin' Cricket." The tune is a progression based on Barrett Strong's "Money" amped up by weird whammy. The exotica percussion is very cool, especially against the behind the bridge picking and bottle neck guitar weirdness. It is both peculiar and interesting, despite such a minimal melody line. There's little "Mexican" about this track.
