No more Beatlemania! The Monks meet rock and roll

An unconventional musical act composed of former U.S. GIs in Germany, the Monks were active for a few years in the sixties before Polydor records spoiled the party by demanding a more traditional sound. Bassist Eddie Shaw exchanged emails with Zack Kopp recently regarding the band’s bizarro twinship with their unlike contemporaries, The Beatles. My interview with bassist Eddie Shaw at IT’S PSYCHEDELIC BABY linked HERE:
