Monks (70's)

After a four-year stint as the rhythm section for respected English trad rockers the Strawbs and a subsequent four-album run as Hudson-Ford, John Ford and Richard Hudson emerged in this utterly unexpected incarnation. As the '70s closed with punk at its apex, the Monks changed with the times. Unlike truly ticked-off punkers such as the Sex Pistols, they played it for a lark on their debut Bad Habits, which featured a leggy, cigarette-smoking, stocking-revealing nun on the cover. Revelling in their Englishness, they jabbed mirthfully at headbangers and ska-fanciers alike with spot-on spoofs including "Drugs in My Pocket," "Spotty Face" and of course "Johnny B. Rotten." Likely surprisingly even themselves, they watched as "Nice Legs Shame About Her Face" climbed to No. 19, borrowing the rhythmic strum Lou Reed perfected with Velvet Underground. Former drummer Hudson was playing bass by now, allowing one-time bassist Ford to be the band's guitarist. Terry Cassidy had full band member status as the writer or co-writer of half of the album's 12 tracks. Chris Pearce allowed Hudson to get out from behind the drum kit. Perhaps realizing the punk spoof concept didn't have much longevity, they had a fling with 1930s-style music as High Society in 1980. They returned to the ersatz punk of the Monks with Suspended Animation, an only-in-Canada release that didn't chart. ~ Mark Allan, Rovi

saw a documentary on this band and instantly was hooked. precusor to punk and even metal, plain awesome.
First, please ignore my moniker, my 15 yr old set it up and it does not reflect me or my opinions.
A listen to Black Monk Time brings home the primal power of these guys. It is music stripped to its raw essence. Pounding, relentless. Listen to I Hate You for an example. I was fortunate to see them reincarnated live a few years ago and the music took on a whole other dimension of aggression. This music will settle into your soul if you let it....

Terrible. All over the shop. Sounds like they came up with little bits and pieces from their morning showers and pasted them together into really crappy songs.

Screw this I'm gonna go watch Futurama!
Wow..this band is obscure and interesting. Pandora has it all.
What an awesome band.
cool to hear - I love gargage bands - these guys are tops - unpolished sound - raw - thumbs up
