8/10 Sandy Burnett Customer review, 17th April 2014
Formed from the ashes of riot grrrl nearly-folk Pussycat Trash. Red Monkey threw a spanner in the works of both what was expected of them and what was hip at the time. Their output comprised of anti-corporate 'up against the wall' polemic lyrics backed with unorthodox key changes (for the time anyway) in the vein of US bands like New Band Thing, Sweep The Leg Johnny and, of course Fugazi. This LP comprises of singles and EPs released on Troubleman, Radio One (Australian label) Gringo as well as their own Slampt label. Their 3 full length albums dug their heels in deeper. Maybe they will be reissued themselves at some stage. Pete from the band still continues in the more pop flavoured Milky Wimpshake. An unsung hero of British underground music if ever there was one. Here's a good place to start discovering his work.
