NO CONDITION IS PERMANENT [Episode #331 ~ 11-26-22]

Pictured: The Monks.

Hans Joachim Irmler, of Krautrock pioneers Faust, later remembered [the Monks’] appearance as “a new freedom … a positive NO! … the future”, and you can hear something of Krautrock’s “motorik” beat in the Monks’ tightly wound playing. But for the most part, the reactions ranged from bewilderment to outright hostility. Their album Black Monk Time, recently reissued on CD, flopped. At least splitting when they did got them out of a spectacularly hare-brained plan to go and play live in downtown Saigon. “Retrospect tells me it’s probably a damn good thing that we didn’t go to Saigon,” [Monks frontman Gary] Berger says. “Clubs were getting blown up in those days. I think we talked about whether or not we’d play songs like ‘Black Monk Time’ and ‘Complication,’ the songs that gave the army a bad time. Maybe we wouldn’t have. We might still have gotten killed.”

— Alexis Petridis, “Music to scare bullies by” The Guardian (May 7, 2009).
