Monks - The Early Years 1964-1965 (Mega Blowout Sale)

SKU 18-LITA 041
This is the demo tape from late 1965 that got them their Polydor contract and led to their early 1966 album, as well as including their 1964 pre-Monks single.
It’s a little less primal and unhinged, but it’s also six months earlier! It’s still shocking to believe that anything even remotely like this existed in 1965
The Monks were a crazy, pre-punk reductionist rock band made up of five US soldiers stationed in Germany, who stayed in Germany after their discharge from the service and who recorded one classic of primal rock music that was released in 1966.
Think of Faust's "It's a Rainy Day, Sunshine Girl", but even more stripped down and aggressive and you get a little bit of an idea of what the Monks did.
