Not Yet by Monotonix (2011)

Kind of Like: Tweakbird, Part Chimp, Sic Alps
Genres: Rock N Roll, Garage Rock, Noise Rock, Punk
Preview: Myspace

Do you ever wake up at night in a cold sweat, rolling over to your laptop to fill yourself with a need?  A need to see grizzly Isreali men getting their groove on? Monotonix has you covered.

Apparently, these guys know how to put on a show.  Dissatisfied with their scene in Isreal they began playing shows where they set up on the floor among the crowd, playing shows raucous enough to result in the power being shut off or the police called in.  Eventually, they would play festivals where they have become known to light their equipment and theirselves on fire, pour audience member's drinks on themselves, and turn concerts into frenzied dance parties.  I doubt this album can possibly convey that energy, but at least it gives you a little taste.

  1. This band has a terrible sound. they suck as a recording artist. the only upside in this unit is that, they put on a hell of a show.

    btw - I've been to dozens of Montonix's gigs in downtown Tel Aviv - they fucking KICK-ASS !!!
