The Monks are one of those hugely seminal groups who other hugely seminal groups name drop. With these lot however, it's wholly deserved. Their music and sound has influenced countless of bands and genres, including garage rock, punk, experimental rock, hardcore, krautrock, and psychedelic rock. Formed whilst stationed as GI's in Germany in the mid-60s, the group decided to carry on the band when they returned home. They play a hard-edged, fuzzed-up and darke take on garage rock, which sort of sounds like a beat group playing punk rock. Venomous, pissed off and strictly anti-war; The Monks were the real deal. Will appeal to fans of The Fall, Stooges, MC5 and The Sonics.
