Monks Of Doom
The Bronte Pin
I have always been a huge fan of Monks of Doom, and I am so glad we get new music from them. Victor Krummenacher, Greg Lisher, Chris Pedersen (all from Camper Van Beethoven) and David Immerglück (Counting Crows) collectively known as Monks of Doom, are set to release their first album of all new material since 1993’s Forgery in the Spring of 2018, and it’s about time. Krummenacher is my favorite songwriter, and Lisher, Pedersen, and Immergluck are so amazing. Together, they make the best music ever. “Duat Duat” sounds like something Traffic would have done, but less meandering and more tuneful. There is something wonderfully innocent yet worldly about this song. It brings me back to the early 70’s yet points me to the future and the stars. Welcome back, guys. I missed you.
