Monkey Power Trio – “Lest We Be Misunderstook” – [Pochontas Swamp Machine]

This is a fine product of the 13th reunion of five friends who one day out of the year become the Monkey Power Trio. Highly amusing are each of these songs, from the mellow ???Hit it With a Bible??? to the Pirates of the Caribbean-inspired, more rocking ???Kraken.??? Recorder, guitars, and bass back up humorous vocals. There???s a soul vibe to ???Juicy Peaches,??? which mentions Captain James T. Kirk. ???Buddha Sings??? is like a Sunday school song. One guy sings the lyrics while the others chime in commentary as chorus–it???s humorous and fun. Not bad for a once-a-year gig.

    Song notes, straight from MPT interviews:
    “Bible” describes a religious approach to masturbation.
    “Kraken” is about a legendary sea monster, but nobody understands what Mark’s lyrics are really getting at.
    “Juicy” is a tribute to 70′s party funk. MPT member Mike shines as a wrapper (aka white rapper).
    “Buddha” is a country gospel song based on Buddhist principles.
    Just so you know…
