Monk Tasm was born in a monastery in a peaceful
environment. So how did this perfect upbringing change Monk into
one of the most vulgar and vile human beings? Well, it's just barely
interesting enough to write. Monk was thrown out of the monastery
at the age of 17 for not practicing the monk's sacred vows to their
god and because he just couldn't keep his voice down. He became
known as "shhhhhhhhhh". Monk then felt that being as vulgar
as possible, and as loud as possible, would be like some sort of
revenge. Singing seemed to be his calling.
Monk's first band was Donkey Kong's Donkey Dung.
They had amazing success with their greatest hits album which included
the song: "Whacka Whacka Bonk". Sadly, Donkey Kong's Donkey
Dung threw Monk out of the band when they caught him singing on
the toilet. In the next stall, Johnny was sitting and noticed Monk's
fantastic and booming voice. He offered him a job in TASM as back-up
singer right then and there. Monk changed from being with Donkey
Kong's Donkey Dung to TASM in under 1minute.
When Harry "died", Monk became the
full-time singer and TASM went to even greater things. In full evolution,
TASM adopted Monk's loud voice by turning up all instruments as
loud as they could. At one of TASM's famous shows, Monk did the
whole set without amplification.
When Harry returned to TASM, Monk shared his
new-found spotlight. Now both singers share responsibility as main
singer and everything is hunky-dory.
