MONOTONIX First full length album and free Leeds show!

It seems weird because it feels like they've been around ages, I mean Levi the singer obviously has been around physically for ages, although he cuts a mean figure and doesn't have an ounce of fat on him. MONOTONIX first full length is due out this September on Drag City. I'll be interested to see who rates it and who hates it. I myself really love the band but I've seen them live a number of times and I'm basing my affection on the strength of their mental performances. When it comes to their recordings, I feel they lack something, maybe if their records came with a stench of sweat and fire it may conjure up a live feeling, perhaps.

They hit Europe very soon and here are the dates. The Iron Wagon is promoting the Leeds show at A Nation of Shopkeepers on Friday 21st August which is also a free gig, splendid.
