Both quality...!

The first two Silver Apples albums were, I think,
released on a 2 on 1 cd. Essential...!

The Monks were American servicemen stationed in Germany
playing mind-bending R 'n R. One of those truly
visionary bands. I will now duly shave my crown in
honour...

The Monks: "Great Legs, Shame About The Face", "Drugs In My Pocket", "Don't Want No Reds Under My Bed" and "Skylab"

Are we talking the same The Monks?

Thanks for reminding me ... I had thought a while back that the Silver Apples were a potential addition under Progressive Electronic ... although the music they made was closer to electronic psychedelia ... I must say listening to their two albums in a row is impossible for me ... I always end up with a bad headache

I don't know the Monks music (except the late 1970s punk band...), but The Silver Apples were amazing - and should be here, IMO

Hear, hear! Just heard them for the first time last October. Very out there stuff, definitely ahead of it's time from a sound design perspective, although I've read that a sizable portion of their "sound" was a byproduct of the fact that neither of them knew the first thing about music!

Mike en Regalia, where art thou?
