Shut Up, Don't Cry

MONK TIME IST HOP TIME!
I love The Beatles, but sometimes I get an uncontrollable urge for hateful-rhythmic-banjo-sixties-pop-german-soldier-rock!
The classics include: I HATE YOU, and SHUT UP! Click to listen! I was introduced to these swell chaps by the amazing kxlu dj Sean Batton.

Monks! Where did that come from? In teenage times, my classical tuba playing buddy Reuben spoke snootily of their primitive chord progressions. I think he thought I was being try-too-hard kooky liking them. I frickin' loooooove I Hate You. Do you know why I hate you baby? Huh, do you know ?(But call me.)

Oh and great drawings. You know how to get in the groove of a thing. Sometimes I wish artists had bands and did gigs and jam sessions together. Well maybe they kind of do round your parts. But bloody musicians have most of the fun. Bloody musicians.

My brother died in Vietnam. James Bond is coming over, who is he? Pussy Galore's coming over and we like it. We don't like the Atomic Bomb.

Omigod it's awesome to find someone else who loves crazy psychadelirock like this and the 13th Floor Elevators. I've tried to convert all my friends to the wonders of this pseudogerman concoctions to no avail.

Prepare to have your mind blown for five and a half unprecendented minutes.

Like Japanese surf-beat garage bands? You do now!

Yay, Black Monk Time!
Terrific caricatures, and very accurate too (they even got the ropes around their necks). You made them look like some scary bunch of satanists. :)

Great band, really one of a kind. Check out this website with the whole crazy history of The Monks. Then, try to listen and draw The Shaggs, if you dare. Frank Zappa once said they were better than Beatles :)

Whit said...

Bloody musicians also get all the s.t.d.s.

diego cumplido said...

new Kot'n Katie and Kali Kazoo ?

Mitch K said...

Thank for you introducing me to this music!

Slack-a-gogo said...

Caricatures of the Monks!?!? Holy crap that's good! I also like drawing obscure rock artists, but I never thought of dipping that deep in the well. Nicely done. And now I want to break out the Black Monk Time CD again - thanks!

leo lorenzana said...

i always thought it was rad that they were so down what they were doing and that they all had monk haircuts.

Kali - you are very talented. The caricatures look better than the old curmudgeons we turned into. I'm gonna print it out, frame it and hang it on the wall. Thank you.
