Biography

RockBoar.com Picture      The Monks were an English punk band formed in the late 1970s, by former members of Strawbs - Richard Hudson, John Ford and Brian Willoughby, along with Terry Cassidy (vocals and synthesisers) and Clive Pierce (drums).

     Hudson played guitar, having switched from drums. Their first album, "Bad Habits" , was released in 1979. The album spawned a number 19 hit single in the UK Singles Chart — "Nice Legs Shame About Her Face". 

     They dabbled with 1930s style music in 1980 as " High Society"  before in 1981 returning to the pseudo-punk format of The Monks for a follow-up album released in Canada only. Chris Parren (keyboards) joined for that second album, "Suspended Animation" . Willoughby was replaced by Huw Gower during the tour for that album which occurred in 1982.

     "Suspended Animation" went gold in Canada
