A Song for Sunday #30

Spider and the Fly 3It’s the last Sunday before Halloween, so this will be the final installment of the freaky song series. I hope you dig it. Here’s The Spider and the Fly by The Monocles. It dates back to 1967, a supremely bad year for horror-oriented rock, and is found on the garage punk comp Pebbles volume 3: the Acid Gallery. This isn’t the first time I’ve posted a song from that collection (I featured weirdo folk act Race Marbles previously), and it probably won’t be the last. Anyway, here’s what the liner notes have to say about the Monocles:

Formed in 1964 in the seething Colorado scene, these guys played Top 40 hits and originals, driving to gigs in a custom hearse. Their first single was a weird instrumental called “Psychedelic”, followed by this wild offering, a remake of a record from the ’50s that came out around the time of the movie The Fly.
