„The Monsters" were formed in 1986 in small-town Bern, capital of Switzerland. Their sound is a fuzzedout mix between 60ies garage punk, wild teenage trash rockabilly and primitive rock'n'roll. Its 187% no MTV and top 100 shit! The actual lineup is guitar, bass and the so- called clonedrum: means 2 drummers with only 1 1/2 drums, hitting thhe same bassdrum from each side.
Besides the countless shows in Switzerland „The Monsters" played extensive tours through Europe including Germany, France, Holland, Belgium, Italy, Austria, England, Denmark and Spain. In 2003 the band toured Argentina, Brasil and New York. The Monsters are a kickass live band who will burn every stage down.
Over the years „The Monsters" recorded 6 albums, several singles and ep's and apeared on countless compilations. The record „Youth Against Nature" was recored in the now famous Toe Rag Studios (London) by Liam Watson and Robert Butler (Miracle Workers). „I See Dead People" came with a 1000-piece puzzle, booklet, sticker and button and was allready sold out during the tour.
The Monsters appear on Voodoorhythm Records, Switzerland. The label is famous for it's taste and style, as it is for the beautiful artwork. Voodoorhytm is run by Beat-Man, who (by accident...) is also the singer and guitar player of The Monsters. Beat-Man played - and still plays - in other projects called Lightning Beat-Man, Reverend Beat-Man, Die Zorros and some more. As a one-man-band he toured all of europe, played venues such as Jazz Festival Montreux, Frat Shack, Dour Festival, Eurocene and Las Vegas Grind (USA) on the same bill with acts like Dick Dale, Public Enemy, Ramones, Prince, Ramstein, Bob Log III and more.

20 YEARS 'THE MONSTERS'
a 2 CD and 2 LP set of rare unreleased stuff, live recordings (not shitty ones..loud n powerful) from all over the world, South America USA , Japan europe and and and, Demo Recordings for the Early Albums, Rehurcal Room recordings wierd Tape recordings very First Rehurcal and New Recordings from the Never Ever Session in 2005
the whole thing comes in 2CD's LP's because it was so much material to chose from and i think we did a very intressting compilation, Shure the Monsters Live is much better than the records but i think we found songs from all the recordings that comes very near, Guitars are mostly out of tuning and as loud as it's get, solos are uncontroled and with different lenght in every show as well the lyrics are different in ever show.you here the Clone Drum set how it sounds live and with many many fotos trou the 20 jears of beeing the monsters
in the Booklet and Liner notes all the members of the band wrote something down to the recordings and to the show where it was, to the people who organicing the shows, and little background storrys...
this is not just another Live Album this is more like a encyclopedia of the Underground Work the monsters did in Switzerland and all over the world, 20 jears of playing all over the world and meeting people building up the Whole Voodoo Rhythm family, the monsters record themself , they do all the artwork the organice the tours and and and all them self and trou the years there's not one second mainstream influence in the music it's RAW RAW ROCK'N'ROLL MUSIC , and true to the bone

---------------------------------------------

The Monsters were formed in Bern, Switzerland back in 1986.
It was the Time where Mainstream Music totally Took over everything, Punk Rock was Over and Dead, the Kids in Bern Shaving and Coloring their Hair and Build'm to a Quiss or Mohawk, they Sit Around in Pups and in Front of the Supermarkd Drinking Beer and listening to Rockabilly and Garage Punk from a Ghetto-Blaster and Pogo in the Streest, meating in Record Shops and listening to the newest Trash From London.. so did The Monsters.. pissed of about the Youth Politic movement in the Contry and pissed off about the Music Programm in the Radios.. Yves had a Sex Pistols record and Beat-Man a Gene Vincent one.. Yves learnd the Jop as Chemical loboprant and Beat-Man was a Electrician... in 1986 they went to HUUS ,a squated Rehurcal and Party Room.. of the Radiations and they did the Fist Recordings together with Oli the Radiations Drummer, Peppi from the Record Junkie Record Shop where the Cats Hangout sed one Day You Guys need a Pedal to the Metal Drummer after that Peppi was the Drummer, after searching for a Bass Player they Found Janosh from Aarau he had a Quiff and a Stand up bass that was good enough for the music they wanted to play , after 2 Albums and several Singles pepi left the Band and Tibu joined the Crew couse in the ad they where asking for a drummer who had a own drum kid and who drinks beer... tibu was perfect for that.. Swan lee came in the mid-90s to the band couse of Tibu's jop he was not able to come on tour anymore.. but after a view Rehurcals with both drummers they desighted to play with Both Drummers and Foundet the Worlds first Clone Drum set
In 2006 the Monsters did 6 Albums and a couple of singles on Several Labels.. they caled the Monsters Psychobilly or Crunch-Abilly or Garage Punk.. but what they realy do is TEENAGE CHAINSAW MASSACRE GARAGE TRASH, today toey are wilder and more noisy than ever.. today still a lot of people leave the Room when they play.. couse it's wild it's loud it's noisy and it's totlay Sexy... but if you stay you will come into a Climax you never where bevore in your live
This is PUS SWISS UNDERGOUD MUSIC !! not one scond a comercial act ,they don't care if the instruments are not in tune and they don't care if they sing everytime other lyrics to their songs.. the just don't care all the wanna do is Rock and Roll

It's our 6th album now and the first album with the Amazing Clone Drum Set !!!, we started in 1986 the recordings and the songs went trashier and more Fuzz and Feedback every year ..... for this record we bought our own home made studio with mixing desk and a 1.5 inch tape machine and microphones from the trashcan, Pumi our Live Mixer and Janosh recorded it in a week, for the first 1000 copies we did a 1000 piece puzzle and a pox as a sleeve... but that item is sold out already now we present you the official version of this TRASH PICE, when we started making the songs for this record I had no lust to write any lyrics to that so we made up most songs free and I sung what I felt like to sing.. it's anyway all about killing killing some more the falling in love and get killed go to hell and having fun down there...
THIS RECORD IS FULL TRASH, I DON'T THINK THAT ANY SERIOUS RADIO STATION GONNA PLAY THIS BUT IF SO... THEN WE HAVE A CHOISE TO GIVE YOU ON YOUR WAY... PLAY LOUD AS POSSIBLE...we recorded is loud as fuck, so the neighbours came over a view times while we recording that record. but even better is if you come to our shows and we blow your brain away in one second !!!

LOW ON LYRICS AND EVEN LOWER ON POETRY. THERE'S TOO MUCH TALK IN THIS WORLD, BUT THERE'S NEVER ENOUGH ROCK'N'ROLL! THE ALBUM IS EXTREMELY CRUDE AND HAS RAW SOUND OF PURE ROCK'N'ROLL SNOTTY GARAGE PUNK AND TOTAL TRASH !!!

The Monsters were formed in BERN SWITZERLAND 1986 as a Altarnative to the Music in that time Period (Disco,POP,Mainstream Rock) and after the 30 YEARS in Doing Trash and Playing all over the Globe the Monsters went to Toulouse in France to record their Hot as Shit Album 'M' (named after the Fritz Lang Movie from 1931)
the Album Starts with a FUZZ TRASH GARAGE Classic , BABY YOU'RE MY DRUG followed up by a
HARD CORE BOOGIE Number DIG MY HAIR, and like that the Album Goes On, all Songs have
NO or even Less of a HI END POETRY Aspect, there is so much BLA BLA TALK in this world why do the same, so Cutting the Songs on only a couple of Words seems to be the Logical Fact and the Alternative to what's going on on this Planet at the Moment, Let the Action Talk not The Words.
the Sound of the Album is very Raw and there's nothing Sweet about it, it's Recorded in a Rotten Old Practice Room in the Bad Parts of Toulouse with Mr Trash itself LoLo Spider of the Infamous DESTINATION LONELY, the Song VOODOO RHYTHM was written as a Tribut to Voodoo Rhythm records the Record label along with the
MUDDY ROOTS Festival in Tennessee USA what became a Homebase for the Monsters as well
