The Monks Monk Out on German Television

Well, after all that Meredith Monk, let’s have some other Monks. As in The Monks, in some amazing footage from German television in 1966.  (I think this is the show that became Beat Club.)

As you’ve no doubt noticed, these dudes actually shaved divots into their hair in order to look like monks. That’s commitment.

More Monks. You’ll have to excuse the interminable bilingual introduction to the first one.

There’s more live footage of The Monks floating around on Youtube as well; it’s all great.

    Cool! I’ve discovered my husband’s Monks album in the past year and have had fun recognizing samples that were used by Psychic TV, Cobra Killer, etc. And also a little sheepish because I’d heard the later artists first.
