It’s Monk Time!

The Monks – “It’s Monk Time”

Behold the improbable brilliance of The Monks. They were five beat playing American GIs stationed in Germany in the mid 60s. They stayed together as a group after their discharges from the service, and made some ground breaking recordings which ultimately influenced later garage rockers from Nirvana to the White Stripes to Radiohead and many more. They are one of those “missing link” bands – not particularly famous in their own right, but hugely respected and important to musicians and fans in the know. Monk Time is an anti-war anthem unlike any other.
