Kicksville 29 B.C.
I was saddened to hear that Gary Burger, the lead vocalist frontman of the Monks, has passed away recently.
We'll hear a few key tunes. Here's a band that was way ahead of the curve in 1966. They pushed all the limits and surpassed them, with Gary's over-the-top vocals, electric banjo, wild organ moves, along with their stage costumes, inlcuding shaving the tops of their head and the typical monk garb. So many amazing tracks, it's hard to pick just a few, but that's what I've got to do tonight.
Also a fair shake of Irish artists of the 60s up to the 70s in honor of the St Patty's Day Weekend.
