I was listening to a bunch of 7″s this past weekend and when I put this on the turntable I was reminded how great Monorchid were. This record came out on Simple Machines who were better known for putting out Tsunami, Ida and Grenadine records than hardcore, but they had released a Circus Lupus song on one of the first “Simple Machines” 7″ set so that may have been the connection. I have a couple of really great pictures that I took when I saw them live that I’ll have to post some day, but in the meantime, enjoy this track.

  1. we’re proud as hell to introduce the final addition to the Touch and Go 25th Anniversary Block Party: legendary D.C. punks The Monorchid. If you were lucky enough to catch them during their brief lifespan (1996-1998), you’re probably still reeling from the impact. If this is your first time, you might want to strap on a helmet. And maybe some shoulder pads.
