Biotic at CC:365: Monk Turner is Day 309

As noted previously, I'm taking my turn posting at CC:365 this week. Today I took the opportunity to share Monk Turner with CC:365 subscribers:

"Monk Turner is a friend of mine at He sent me a message a few weeks ago asking what sort of payola it takes to get included on Black Sweater, White Cat. It just takes some love, baby. I busted out this tune a week or so ago and wow!

Monk has a ton of material at He bills himself as a "Galactic Defender of the Concept Album."

About Monk Turner:

Monk Turner does not write songs. He writes albums.

If you only listen to a song or two, you're missing the point.

Monk began his music career in the early 1990s as a principal songwriter for several groups. It was during this Dark Age that "The Hit Single" phenomenon began to decimate popular music.

Having his own soul saved by rock 'n' roll (think Pink Floyd's The Wall, The Who's Tommy and Rush's 2112) Monk has dedicated his life to becoming a galactic defender of the Concept Album.

Today's version of She's the American Hippie Girl is from a live performance recorded at KXLU in Los Angeles.
