The Monks - footage

Mirco has another great little video clip to share: "The Monks were certainly one of the rawest garage-punk bands of the sixties. Five texan soldier kids living in Germany, they were crazy enough to shave their heads and dress like real monks. They opened their perfomance at the Beat Club on '65 with a really noisy instrumental track: tribal beats, an heavy fuzz bass guitar riff, hysterical howls, people torturing the electric guitar...and the audience that tries to dance at it! ..."
