    Sensational Moody Monkey #012 - The Trash Templars' first album finally coming out on November 22nd!


    Click HERE to get it!

    Once a myth, now a wild and raw rockin' primitive reality on wax by those four tweens from illusive - or conspired - German city Bielefeld. After a fast sold-out EP, this is The Trash Templar's exciting first and only full-length album. Garage at its best with from time to time some grungy punky despair tunes on top. Eleven 100% original ear-worms to make you move your feet and feel your heart break. Not so much a bloodline of Jesus but more a throbbing vein of the purest trash. Finally these four Templars step out of a world of obscurity and are ready to earn the well-deserved glory with their 4-chord-fuzz-garage-punk! Limited edition of 500 exemplars. This is the 12th hot and inevitable release on Moody Monkey Records.

    Some words from Beatmike, Cologne 2017 (McPsych -worldwide- Industries):

    Dear hunters and collectors,

    The history of the Templars dates back to the 12th Century.  On their savage crusades, they have killed thousands of  disbelievers. Rumours testify to the existence of Templars up to the present date. But what does a Templar do today? <p>
    They have long since laid down their swords, exchanged them for fuzz guitars and are the proof for their present existence. They still only wear their massive helmets to protect themselves against the mighty sonic waves of the so much hated modern music of today and pray the sounds of pure TRASH rather than the faith in Jesus Christ!

    Here they are, cats and dogs, THE TRASH TEMPLARS!!!

    Their first live appearance was at a local Halloween dance party back in 2010. Launched as a pure fun project (playing covers of Pebbles/BFTG compilations), the reactions of the audience + promoters to the wild and savage show were overwhelming and led them to different cities all over the country to pray their unique sounds of TRASH. At the Jerk Fest (NL), they attracted the guys of the fine Kuriosa label and the first fantastic EP "I want to be like you" soon followed in 2015.

    Their growing popularity soon brought them to top notch festivals as the GARAGEVILLE (Hamburg) and GO WILD (Eindhoven). Their EP sold out quickly and the long awaited recordings for this longplayer started soon after.  

    The result is what your holding in your sticky hands now. Eleven self-penned, brain-melting, raw and primitive garage tracks that make you shake, shout & shiver! Enjoy this piece of black wax on Moody Monkey Rec. right now, before it's sold out and fallen into oblivion. The sound of four frustrated, misunderstood teenagers  - thee heirs to the throne of the Templars.

    Still HOT and available on Moody Monkey:

    LP: CURLEE WURLEE! "Birds & Bees"
    The 4th album feat. 14 brilliant originals recorded on a hot rainy day. English and French, straight guitar and organ sounds: hits only. Not only garage punk and moody beat, but also exotica and weirdo surprises on vinyl.

    7": CURLEE WURLEE! Agents Of The Ape (CopaseDisques) 3 track EP: I Don’t Like You / TouDouDou / Tripsi Woman

    LP: HANK ROBOT & THE ETHNICS “Elvis-Jello Mojo” 
    The lost Dead Kennedy recordings? Nope! The debut of Hank Robot & The Ethnics, a POWESROLO side project, that doesn't seem to take things too serious and rather blast out a 12 track party record which should leave you with a smile on your face.

    LP: SICK HYENAS "Sick Hyenas"
    These twelve versatile tracks offer different facets of SICK HYENAS: punky, folky, beaty garage tunes with juvenile and powerful vocals, a wide range of all facilities from moody to happy lyrics, all speeds and lengths from 20 seconds to 3'49 with a talent for surprising breaks and some kinda sloppiness. SICK HYENAS are a young German trio formed in Hamburg in 20122.

    Cryptic fuzz punk meets 60s influenced garage weirdos: no clichés, just super original super raw garage tunes. THE SKEPTICS are a unique one-man creation interpreted live by a French-Belgian three-piece combo. This album is a must-have for all garage freaks interested in NOW! music, and will do pretty well too on any turntable. Extremely exciting. 14 killers on vinyl to be filed under Fuzz Punk!

    Limited super prices on these Moody Monkey 45s:

    7": THE MAHARAJAS Just Let Him Go/ Tell Me € 4,50 - Sweden’s Maharajas around Jens Lindberg (Crimson Shadows, Stomachmouths, Maggots, etc.) with two new tracks.

    7" EP: TOMMY & THE YOUTH "Mean, Moody & Magnificent" € 4,90 - Four song EP by the Danish YOUTH starring Tom H. Wing of the English TEAMSTERS.

    7" EP: THEE OUTLETS - 1st € 4,90  Cool 4-song debut by his almost all girl band incl. Cécile from Curlee Wurlee! on organ and vocals: You're Not Gonna/ End Of Time / Sortir Avec Toi/ Surprise Party A Sankt Pauli

    7": THEE OUTLETS Halloween Bash € 4,50 - The second 45 by with a sexy Bo-Diddleyish fecundity ode, and the flip might bring Screaming Lord Sutch alive again.

     CURLEE WURLEE! won't release the takes of their long expected 4 tracks EP "Touch my alien", due to bad sound quality.

    That means that MM45-003 won't come out. Which is highly regrettable, since all songs were extremely heterogeneous, dancy, wild and cool. This sucks.

    So we wish CW! all the best with the next recordings!
