Head Movie 1968 Poster The Monkees

Hey hey we’re THE MILKSHAKE BOOM and we’re just boomin’ around to the 1968 trippy cult film ‘Head’, directed by Bob Rafelson and starring Micky Dolenz, Davy Jones, Peter Tork, and Michael Nesmith a.k.a. The Monkees!  Yes…The Monkees!

We also talk about the 1960’s, the history of The Monkees television show, and Jack Nicholson (who co-wrote this film by the way) and the birth of the counter culture movement!

This film is hands down the most divisive choice to date as Robert and Christine hail it as an absolute work of genius, while Robin and Jose loathed it. In fact, Jose may still be blind with irrational rage.  Just be prepared for some awkwardness is all I’m saying.

Not familiar with the film? Here are a couple of trailers for the film! The first one is a great example of the anti-marketing they attempted at the time:
