RIP Davy Jones

RIP Davy Jones, 1945-1966

From Davy Jones, signifier of modernity

He was the English kid who ended up in America, perched on the bonnet of the Monkeemobile next to its stupidly large chrome engine block, peering at us through his fringe; the Artful Dodger transported to the land of Marvel Comics and bubblegum, oblivious to My Lai, Altamont, the Watts Riots and the impending breakup of the actual Beatles themselves.
