Monk and Canatella
Simon Russell and Jim Johnston in the mid-nineties. Their 1996 album on Cup Of Tea Records, Care in the Community, is a prime example of the trip-hop sound.
The band later moved to Telstar and released a second album Do Community Service in 2000. The artwork for this album was an early collaboration with the Bristol born graffiti artist Banksy. The band parted company with the label shortly afterwards.
The band released the single "Straighthead" on Youtube on December 23, 2007. Monk and Canatella are currently working on a new album due for release in 2009.
Trip-hop band Portishead included a track titled "A Tribute to Monk and Canatella" on their 1995 CD single "Sour Times (Nobody Loves Me.)"
