The Monks were five beat playing American GIs stationed in Germany who, after their discharge, decided to stay & continue their musical mission. Meeting up with a team of local managers, they transformed themselves & their sound into a holy racket like the world had never known. This five-person order literally birthed the garage, psych & punk genres through a fuzz-drenched evolution of sound, bursting with social commentary & future primitive rhythms. 36-pg deluxe booklet feat. in-depth notes, interviews with band, lyrics & trove of unseen photos. Bonus material dating back to pre-Monks Torquays & up to post Black Monk Time 7"s are also included.
