Monday’s Strong Jam of The Day: The Troggs


The Troggs , “Cousin Jane ” of Trogglodynamite is an outstanding song. This particular song is one of my favorites by this classic UK band that formed in the early 60’s. Better known for pop hits, like “Love is all around” and “Wild thing, “Cousin Jane” stands out as one of those songs that demonstrates the depth of their inspiration and repertoire.  While most of the album is so-so, this song appeared, this gem of a song. This song among many demonstrates how and why the Troggs played a big role in influencing the garage rock and punk movements. “Cousin Jane” is one of their more melancholic, delicate and ballady cuts and exemplifying the a transitional phase into their sound as they matured into more alternative musical approaches


Enjoy today’s jam
