The Shape of Punk to Come

The Monks first hair-cut !
1966...IT'S MONK TIME !

Five former American GIs band, The Monks ,released 'Black Monk Time' LP in Germany in the mid 60's. Twisted rolls and fuzzy rock, upbeat drumming, electric banjo, crazy organ, speed-haunted voices and ropes tied around the neck. Their music is all about rhythm and experimenting around beats, introducing weird harmonies and punching lyrics. Just one album, but every song is a dirty gem.
