The Monks were formed by American soldiers stationed in Germany. They played primitive and furious rock and roll, somewhere between the Kinks' You Really Got Me and the punk-rock of ten years later. They wore monks clothes and they shaved their heads. Their songs offered sociopolitical commentary worthy of the Fugs. Black Monk Time (Polydor, 1966 - Infinite Zero, 1997) is one of the most formidable albums of the mid 1960s. While the Beatles were singing "la-la yeah-yeah", the Monks (self-proclaimed "anti-Beatles") scared crowds of well-behaved kids with Drunken Maria, I Hate You, Shut Up, Complication. (Translated by Ornella C. Grannis)

I Monks furono formati da soldati americani di stanza in Germania. Suonavano un rock and roll furioso e primitivo, qualcosa tra You Really Got Me dei Kinks e il punk-rock del decennio successivo. Indossavano il saio dei monaci e si rapavano a zero. Le loro canzoni erano commentari socio-politici degni dei Fugs. Black Monk Time (Polydor, 1966 - Infinite Zero, 1997) e' uno degli album piu' formidabili degli anni 60. Mentre i Beatles cantavano "la-la yeah-yeah", i Monks (che si dichiaravano anti-Beatles), impressionavano folle di ragazzini perbene con Drunken Maria, I Hate You, Shut Up, Complication.
