Item Description

THE MONKS black monk time
One of the true ultimate demented master pieces of 60s garage punk. Unique, wild and totally insane. This is no half assed LP with 2 original tracks and the rest are covers of Louie Louie, Gloria, blues standards but 100% true genius thought and though. 


SLEEVE:   VG+  (Some wear around the edges, no writing or tears)

RECORD:   VG+ (Good shine still have lighter hairlines and the odd wispy mark, seen under heavy  still a decent copy that plays great! ) 


                       HAVE AUCTIONS BOTH ON UK AND US EBAY SO




Grades are sleeve/record. Only one grade means there is no picture sleeve. If there is a picture sleeve missing to this issue I will note it in the description. 

NC = Center missing. WOC = Writing on cover. WOBC = Writing on back cover.  SWOBC = Slight writing on back.WOL=Writing on label CW = Cover wear. RW = Ringwear. SOC / SOL = Sticker on cover/label SSOL=Sticker stain on label SOBC = Sticker on backcover, TOL = Tapemarks on lbl,  SWDNAP = Slight warp does not effect playing,TOC = Tape,tapemarks on cover, SPS = Split seam

M- is just a shade away from Mint, what many call Mint. I rarely call records mint cause there are so many things that a human eye and miss. I very rarely grade records with this grade. Sleeve should be as close to perfect and new from the factory as you can get. 

EX is also really really clean, just a handfull of light hairlines, fiedlity must be great with no distortion or noise due to wear. What many call Mint- or NM. I rarely grade with this grade. Sleeve should have no real faults, maybe a hint of dirt or a bit wrinkly, maybe a bit yellowed.

VG++ a great copy that could have a few hairlines but still lots of luster / shine or maybe one or two light marks but very shiny apart from that, these records also play great. Sleeve could have slight general wear but look nice. Maybe a clean sleeve with just one rip or two at the opening.

VG+ still a decent copy, most used records are in this condition or less. Can have quite a few hairlines and a few light marks but still some shine. Could also be very shiny but with one small more distinct mark making a pop or two. Must play well with just light crackle or maybe the odd lighter pop.  More general wear or maybe small writing, small tear or so. Generally looks OK

VG can have many hairlines or small light marks, may even have some bigger marks but nothing too bad. Can play with some distortion but nothing that overcomes the music. Still good enough to DJ with, usually it even plays better than VG but the visual is a lot of wear. More wear, tears etc

VG- my worst grade, records are well used. Play with distortion at most times, usually works as a DJ copy still. Not a beautiful sleeve, tears, writing, probably both.
