The Monkey Run - Waiting For A 4.0.9 (EP) 12'' (1987)

Otra banda que flirteó con el sonido indie fue The Monkey Run, banda originaria del Reino Unido y que a través de Intense Records legaron este interesante 12’’ y también los 7 pulgadas “Falling Upstairs” y “I Want The Blood Of A Civil Servant”. La banda inicia su carrera en 1982 con sus formadores los cuales fueron Mark Hodkinson (guitarras), Jim Stringer (vocalista y bajo) y Terry Eves (Teclado). Afortunadamente el año pasado los integrantes de la banda crean el blog the-monkey-run.blogspot.com con toda la información necesaria sobre sus orígenes y trayectoria.

You might find this interesting.

We refer to it as "Analog Music from a Lost World" -- previously unreleased post-punk experimental rock from 1981, unlike anything else recorded before or after.

"...a comment i had from an anonymous friend made me to move my old fat ass and write about this unique lost treasure, post-punk mixed with avant-rock, filled with spastic rhythms and synths in a very New York-ish manner, something like a No Wave Beefheart, if he was a female..." -- buginthecity.blogspot.com

"...some hefty grooves, and plenty of 'holy shit" moments'. It's a spacious but highly rewarding listen, and I wouldn't be surprised if some label makes an effort to press this on vinyl in the near future." -- ongakubaka.blogspot.com

"Hopefully, some enterprising reissue label will snatch this one up, as it's too good to exist only in the ephemeral form of a download." -- Mutant Sounds

"This is amazing stuff and we would be honored to feature it in wfmu's curated portal on the free music archive. I'm very sorry for our slow response, we have a lot of stuff to wade through to find gems like these."

Come away with me and we'll kiss
On a mountaintop
Come away with me
And I'll never stop loving you

I made the change from a common thief
To up close and personal with Robin Leach
And I'm far from cheap, I smoke skunk with my peeps all day
Spread love, it's the Brooklyn way
The Moet and Alize keep me pissy
Girls used to diss me

To think of all the nights
I've cried myself to sleep
You really oughtta know
How much you mean to me
It's only right that you be in my life right here with me
Oh baby, baby

Like I did that day
Take me to the place I love
Take me all the way
It's hard to believe
That there's nobody out there
It's hard to believe
That I'm all alone
At least I have her love
The city she loves me
Lonely as I am
Together we cry
I don't ever want to feel
Like I did that day

I think that you're truly somethin'
And you're, you're every bit of a dream come true
With you baby, it never rains and it's no wonder
The sun always shines when I'm near you
It's just a blessing that I have found somebody like you
