Christie Talks Monkeysby Contributor | 24 October 2008
TONY CHRISTIE has been talking about his cover version of the ARCTIC MONKEYS track Only The Ones Who Know.
The veteran singer recently recorded a new album entitled Made In Sheffield which consists solely of music that has come from the Yorkshire city and features contributions from RICHARD HAWLEY and JARVIS COKCER.
Speaking to BBC 6 Music, he said he chose to reinterpret the Monkeys' song as he feels it harks back to a past musical era.
"The reason I like the Monkeys is because they take me back to the 60's.
"It's very like that 60's scene, The Beatles and all that.
"It reminds me of that and of a time when I was kicking off in the business. So it's a bit retro but great."
Christie performed the album in its entirety on a Mersey ferry on Wednesday as part of the Northern leg of the BBC Electric Proms.
