The man behind ‘Pappa Razzi and the Photogs’, 'The Passionate and Objective Jokerfan’ and an array of other musical identities in the Motern Media stable, Matt Farley, welcomes me into his Danvers MA studio to convince me that the greatest Beach Boys album is not 'Pet Sounds’ but actually their 1977 cult album 'Love You’.
We delve into the weird and murky circumstances of its creation, how it served as a sort of 'comeback album’ for the band who had been in danger of relegation to the oldies circuit, how Brian Wilson functioned without a lyricist, Mike Love’s controversial role in the BBs, how the band ageing gives some of their songs a creepy edge and more.
