IT IS GREAT TO SEE ANYTHING ABOUT THE MONKS PRINTED ANYWHERE.I'D LIKE TO HEAR MORE ABOUT WHAT THEY ARE DOING NOW IF ANYTHING.I SAW THEIR SECOND EVER GIG IN AMERICA AT CAVE-
STOMP IN NEW YORK IN 1999 AND IT WAS TRULY A RISE.THE FIRST
SONG THEY PLAYED THAT NIGHT SEEMED ALMOST A LITTLE UNSURE,
MAYBE HESITANT,BUT THE CROWD REFUSED TO LET THEM FEEL
UNCOMFORTABLE AND IT WAS AS IF LIFE WAS BREATHED INTO THEM
AND THEY WERE UNBELIEVABLE FROM THAT POINT ON! A CONDENSED
AUDIO/3-SONG VIDEO CD FROM THE TWO NIGHTS THEY PLAYED PROVED
TO ME THAT IT WAS NOT MY IMAGINATION.THIS IS AVAILABLE THROUGH CAVESTOMP RECORDS THROUGH THE GOOD PEOPLE OF VARESE
SARABANDE.I WOULD LIKE TO FIND THE FULL VIDEO FOOTAGE OF THE
SECOND NIGHT SHOW AND ALSO ANY EARLY EXISTING FOOTAGE OF THEM IN THEIR FABULOUSLY UNGLORIOUS EARLY CAREER (AS TOLD
BY EDDIE SHAW IN HIS TO BE TREASURED ACCOUNT TITLED "BLACK MONK TIME").WELL, HOPE THAT WASN'T TOO MUCH
CRABSCAM
SORRY,IT BEARS MENTIONING THAT AT THAT GIG,WHICH WAS SLIGHTLY "COMPLICATED" BY GARY BURGERS VOCAL TROUBLES(BROUGHT ON BY MUCH REHEARSING IN TOO SHORT A
TIME) ONE MIKE
FORNATALE HELPED FILL IN ON VOCALS, WHEN WARRANTED, QUITE ADMIRABLY.ALSO WHEN THE MONKS HAD EXHAUSTED ALL THEIR OPTIONS OF SONGS THEY COULD PLAY TOGETHER THEY HONORED THE
CROWDS ENTHUSIASM BY "FORMING" THE SONG ENTITLED "MONK JAM"
WHICH APPEARS AT THE END OF THE CAVESTOMP GIG.WHEN THINGS LIKE THIS HAPPEN I KNOW THAT IT IS THE REMINDER THAT IT IS
SOMETIMES VERY GREAT TO BE ALIVE
