Miserable Monokeys has presented amazing anecdotal concerts in New York and Portland, Oregon, combining story telling and improvised music. Originally a free jazz trio, Miserable Monokeys have switched directions after a chance discovery of some previously unreleased music by an obscure flower rock band from the 60's called COURTESY C.U.N.T.S. The C.U.N.T.S s brought their music from England to San Francisco in 1965 but failed to achieve success due to their unusual band name. While they created a stable of great tunes, they completely failed to get the bookings necessary to reach their fans. 50 years later, their works are being rediscovered and released. Such C.U.N.T.S" anthems as "You Take Three Steps" and "Gum on my Shoe" are now reaching a whole new generation of C.U.N.T.S lovers. Miserable Monokeys are proud to present 8 reworked C.U.N.T.S classics.
