Intermission — Dylan Hicks

Latest posts by Ed Park (see all)

ED PARK • Dullblogger Devin and I share a friend in the novelist and singer/songwriter Dylan Hicks. (His 2012 book BOARDED WINDOWS also spawned an excellent album, DYLAN HICKS SINGS BOLLING GREENE—listen here.) I was poking around to find some more DH tunes, and found this charming number, “What I Want,” which begins, “I just want to be the Monkee to your Beatle.” The video is wantonly out of synch, but this is a toe-tapper with smile-making lyrics I thought HD readers might enjoy.

  1. “Don’t let me stand out here to freeze.” Great stuff. Thanks for introducing this guy.

    WAUA, glad you like it! The song is stuck in my head…Another good one (less Beatlesque, but excellent, w/a great video) is “City Lights”:

  3. The remaining Beatles to reunite? You decide…

    I was poking around trying to find more tunes by him, and found The Buggs (the original Liverpool sound) a group who released an album designed to fool parents into buying it for their kids instead of Meet The Beatles.
