FUCK KNIGHTS: Recorded by Gary Burger from the Monks: CDEP

Jan 06, 2011

As the title implies, these cats managed to wrangle the lead guitarist/vocalist of ‘60s cult legends The Monks to twiddle the knobs for ‘em. The results of their shared endeavor are four tracks of raw trash rock with ‘60s influences up the wanger, of course, and a singer who sounds like he’s in dire need of a mouthful of throat lozenges. While nothing here is earth shattering or ground breaking, the band handily does what it does and the production keeps it sounding sandblasted without having it sound like it was swathed in bubble wrap and dropped down a deep well.
