Monkee Head is a carnivalesque network of cannibal sounds from galactic jungles and gear-powered mountains, where space cowboys powwow with witchdoctors. Lift-off is battery operated, but includes bacon and some mozzarella cheese. Monkee Head echoes from a dark and neon cave in the jungles of Isla de Sombras (Island of Shadows), a solitary star in the spiral galaxy, Messier 51a.

“More than music, what we are defining through our practice is a culture. The eating, critiquing, camaraderie, even the style of our music, our evolving coded sense of humor, a mythological happening in the bowels of Providence. I hate the traditional idea of a ‘band’. I hate the idea of traditional ’songs’. I love the idea of culture as an anthropological phenomenon. Sound is our primary means of communication, not words. We are a sci-fi collection of beings living in our own graphic novel, broadcasting our language from some secret safe place, while projecting the future of culture.” - Albert Monkee Head
