It's beat time! It's Monk time! After years of reading Mark E. Smith banging on about them and wongly assuming that The Monks would be just another cool 60s garage band I finally checked them out a few months back at Brian's suggestion and I'm glad I did because Black Monk Time is 3000% amazing! These dudes went to Vietnam and ended up forming a beat combo in Germany which eventually evolved into the funny haircuts and gimmicks that give them quite a solid claim for being one of the first conceptual art rock bands.. Not that that's all they have to offer, their good-time anti-war stance overall sound are equally extraordinary with more raw bite than you'd assume possible for a record made during the era. Extraordinary stuff and if you've any interest whatsoever in bands like The Sonics, The Seeds or the myriad one-'hit' wonders featured on the Pebbles or Nuggets series' then this is an easy recommendation.. The double LP's a bit of a hefty price but it's a lovely package, with a heavy duty tip-on gatefold sleeve and extensive notes on the insert. If that's overkill then the CD looks tasty enough!
