No More Monkeys Jumping On My Bed


I loved this band, very strange indeed.  Two dudes with synths, sequencers, guitars, and occasionally a drummer. Gil Mantera played bass, synths, sang, and generally rocked one of the most awesome looks ever to hit the stage. His partner Ultimate Donny sang his heart out through some very strange lyrics and played an icy lead guitar while
wearing a trench coat and not much else.

Their songs are strong and the mix was unlike anything else.  It’s nearly every genre at once and it works. I heard they broke up a few years ago :-(.

Behold the awesome sauce that was Gil Mantera’s Party Dream (GMPD), and check out the rest of the record – it’s full of jams and left turns.
