The Monks — Bad Habits


Remaining with the theme of satire and parody in popular music, The Monks were an English punk band formed in the 1970s by former members of StrawbsRichard Hudson, John Ford and Terry Cassidy, along with Clive Pearce (drums). Their debut album, Bad Habits, a spoof of punk rock released in 1979, then re-released on 28 December 1999, had a very successful run in Canada and the UK, where the single “Nice Legs Shame About Your Face” reached number 19 on the UK Singles Chart.

Notice the superb acting and musicianship on the second video. What incredible lip syncing abilities. I am awed.

Thinga-mah-ding! Thinga-mah-Quongo!
