I came across this YouTube video in the comments section over at Gorilla vs. Bear. It’s a band called The Monks on German TV. I’m completely obsessed, it’s total visionary genius. They shaved their head like monks! Their rhythm is hypnotic. I had never heard of them before, but they were American GI’s stationed in Germany in the ’60s.

I smell a ’60s garage band / psych rock obsession coming for me… If anyone has any recommendations in this vein, please please please gimme.
