Monks Black Monk Time on 2LP The Monks were five beat playing American GIs stationed in Germany who, after their discharge, decided to stay and continue their musical mission. Meeting up with a team of local managers, they transformed themselves and their sound into a holy racket like the world had never known. This five-person order literally birthed multiple musical genres through a fuzz-drenched evolution of sound, bursting with social commentary and future primitive rhythms. Light In The Attic is ecstatic to present this lavishly packaged and lovingly researched 2LP reissue of the Monks' landmark 1965 studio album Black Monk Time. Numerous period photographs (many unseen) and an extensive two-part essay by Canadian music journalist Kevin Howes accompanies the release and tells the Monks story like it has never been told. Bonus material dating back to pre-Monks Torquays and up to post Black Monk Time 45s is also included.
