The Monks are great.

Didn't they have an all-female tribute act called the Nuns?

Rog said...

It didn't sound much like Daydream Believer though.

Absolute fucking genius! Way ahead of their time.

You're a few vowels out, Rog. The Monks did a storming version of Daydrm Blvr.

Indeed, Steerforth. The whole of the second Velvet Underground is contained in those two minutes.

I know, Chris. But they've got six years to look back on with much pride.

Aw. I met them for the fanzine workshop, (for the fanzine which never saw the light of day) they were very friendly & enthusiastic & helpful. Bah.

I‘m sure they’ll continue to be so, Annie, in their different guises. Maybe some of them will become teachers. :-o
