|„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.

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
