Back to the twentieth century with the Monks...

We just got a re-issue of Black Monk Time by legendary garage rock proto-punksters The Monks.  I highly recommend this release for anybody who likes raw American garage rock.

For those of you unfamiliar with this band, they were basically just a bunch of bored American GIs stationed in Germany during the ’60s who decided to form an experimental and very raucous rock band.  For added absurdity, they actually dressed like monks (see the video below for an example of a live performance).
