'Water of a Monkey's Back - Monkey Sons (single review)

‘Water Off A Monkey’s Back’ is the latest single from Brighton Hip Hop band Monkey Sons. It’s a rowdy stab at the establishment; the government comes under the knife most severely on the first verse.

Ska tinged rock with rapped vocals, chant-along-choruses and scratching is the summation of the package offered by this 7 piece live band. ‘Firechaser’ is a hyped up, Keith Flint-esque electro/rock/breaks monster. It’s an untameable creature (a rabid monkey maybe) that explores personal ills.

This single is available digitally now at the usual places (itunes, emusic, amazon and napster - where have you been?!) or on vinyl or CD at their myspace (click this link).
