Sketchbook Sunday

Just another Sketchbook Sunday folks. Every time I use that title for a post, The Bangles singing "Manic Monday" takes over my brain. How about you? :)

This is Post #1260

Yup, that is the song I think of when you post a title like Sketchbook Sunday! Wonder what happened to that group?

I found this online article dated June 2009...

Begin excerpt -
The Bangles broke up at the end of the decade (the '80s), after having hits with "Eternal Flame" and "Walk Like an Egyptian," but re-formed in 2000. In 2003, they released the album "Doll Revolution." They've just started on a new CD. These days, there are only three members; bassist Michael Steele left the group in 2005.

Hoffs, now 50 but looking nowhere near it, celebrates the release of a side project next month: a collection of '70s covers with musician Matthew Sweet called "Under The Covers Vol. 2."

Wow, Royce, thanks for the info. Also, you can see Susanna Hoffs in the Austin Powers movies as part of the band that plays music that bridges different scenes. They also do the song at the end of the first movie. I think its called "BBC-1".

Oh, and Manic Monday was written by Prince. :)
