I wasn't there to see the Monks in the 1960's, but the 1999 Cavestomp reunion left me and a roomful of attendees (including Jim Thirlwell and Genesis P. Orridge) completely obliterated. From fellow Monktimer Eddie Shaw: "Two days before the birthday of his hero, Elvis - Dave Day of the Monks suffered a heart attack and massive brain injury. He has been taken off the life support system today. His work is done." A banjo will never be rhythmically abused so perfectly ever again.
