Have you considered "Strawberry Road" by Sam Phillips off the "Martinis and Bikinis" album? Also a lot of early Michael Penn is extremely Beatleicious. Then there is, of course, the entire Apples in Stereo oeuvre.

Mr Fab

Don't forget The Three O'Clock's "As Real As Real."

Gaylord Fields

Mr Fab,

Good call on the Three O'Clock number -- it definitely has a variation of the "TNK" drum pattern, and Michael Quercio's Lennon-sucking-helium-and-singing-through-a-rotating-housefan voice clinches it.

OK, here's my two cents: Hilly Fields (1892) by Nick Nicely. 80s psych never sounded so good again, or since. Really any song on the at-long-last-released Psychotropia CD, but that was the big single. I'd point to 49 Cigars (perhaps even more than Hilly Fields) and 6B Obergine too, and not just because they all have numbers in the name.

Much of The Olivia Tremor Control's Dusk At Cubist Castle elpee.

Your point on the Chemical Brothers exceedingly well taken. And perhaps The Private Psychedelic Reel off Dig Your Own Hole as well?

Does anyone recall Todd Rundgren's Utopia and the album "Deface the Music"? The entire album consists of well-executed "knock-offs" of assorted Beatles tracks. The first track, "I Just Want To Touch You", sounds like a cross between "She Loves You" and "I Wanna Hold Your Hand". You can spend the whole album trying to figure out what songs are being "tributed".

I guess this falls under coincidence, unless Matthew Sweet is not his real name. In Liverpool, there was a club called The Cavern which featured The Beatles in their early days. Its address is on Mathew Street.

Taxman, that is a coincidence, but what isn't is a fact regarding someone else i referred to in this post. Noel Gallagher named his band after the Oasis Club in Manchester, the locus of that city's beat group scene, and a venue in which the Beatles themselves performed, natch.

Charlie

How about "The King Is Half Undressed" by Jellyfish (on the "Bellybutton" album)?

Dave

What about the Jam's 1980 album, Sound Affects? If ever there was a Beatles tribute...

Ryan

A Texas trio called Cotton Mather, really tapped into their inner-Scouse with the album, Kon Tiki; particularly the songs, "Autumn's Birds" and Aurora Bori Alice".

Ryan

The Chemicals are definitely influenced by "Tomorrow Never Knows" and took that sound to "Setting Sun" and to "Let Forever Be", but Noel Gallagher wasn't employed to assist, it was the other way around. Gallagher wrote and played those songs and Rowland/Simons produced and mixed. Without Noel, those songs don't exist.

The "don't like the Beatles" delusion reminds me of when I used to read the excessively nerdy MI rock fanzine Blitz! in the '70s/early 80s. The editor would go to great lengths to compare some New Wave band to a garage band that he and perhaps 3 others people had heard of, instead of making a direct reference to the Beatles (or others) who in reality had actually been the direct influence upon that '60s garage band. In other words, virtually none of the editor's cherished and thoroughly obscure pet faves would have existed if not for the Beatles (or Stones, etc.). And he had a fetish for calling bands like the Beatles "overrated," which is a total laugh (and a lie). One point of hilarity were the editor's cheerleading exercises in favor of the Monkees, but I always loved the TV show and the music, even moreso now. Monkees for the Rock Hall!

How could you not like the Beatles? That would be like saying you don't like oxygen. Without either, survival is a definite no.
PEACE LOVE AN ELBOWGREASE!!
