After a four-year stint as the rhythm section for reputed British trad rockers the Strawbs and a subsequent four-album operate as Hudson-Ford, John Ford and Richard Hudson surfaced within this utterly unexpected incarnation. As the ’70s shut with punk at its apex, the Monks transformed with the days. Unlike really ticked-off punkers like the Sex Pistols, they performed it to get a lark on the debut NEGATIVE TRAITS, which highlighted a leggy, cigarette-smoking, stocking-revealing nun in the cover. Revelling within their Englishness, they jabbed mirthfully at headbangers and ska-fanciers as well with spot-on spoofs including “Medications in my own Pocket,” “Spotty Encounter” and undoubtedly “Johnny B. Rotten.” Most likely surprisingly also themselves, they viewed as “Good Legs Pity About Her Encounter” climbed to Zero. 19, borrowing the rhythmic strum Lou Reed perfected with Velvet Underground. Previous drummer Hudson was playing bass right now, permitting one-time bassist Ford to become the band’s guitarist. Terry Cassidy experienced full music group member position as the article writer or co-writer of fifty percent from the album’s 12 songs. Chris Pearce allowed Hudson to obtain out from behind the drum package. Perhaps recognizing the punk spoof idea didn’t have very much longevity, that they had a fling with 1930s-design music as Large Culture in 1980. They came back towards the ersatz punk from the Monks with Suspended Computer animation, an only-in-Canada launch that didn’t graph.
