Item ID: 326164

Back in print! Limited edition vinyl double LP on 180 gram wax. Comes with gatefold hand-numbered old school tip-on jacket, lyrics, and notes. Today, "garage," "psych," and "punk" are three overused words to say the least. They're dropped from every direction to brand, market and sell, but looking back to the mid-1960s, there was only one group of musical mavericks that clearly defined them. THE MONKS were five beat playing American GI's stationed in Germany who, after their discharge, decided to stay and continue their musical mission. Meeting up with a team of local managers, they transformed themselves and their sound into a holy racket like the world had never known. This five-person order literally birthed the above genres through a fuzz-drenched evolution of sound, bursting with social commentary and future primitive rhythms.


Also available: BLACK MONK TIME (LP).
