Arrow Monkey Business

After his recent appearance at the Gastroblues Festival in Hungary and before his upcoming gig in Italy, GLENN took a trip to Prague, capital city of the Czech Republic.

There he did a session with the Czech band, Monkey Business - their music is a mix of pop, funk with a dash of rock thrown in!

You can checkout their material by visiting:

http://www.monkeybusiness.cz/

Look forward to hearing the end result, it should be good

As you may have seen, Glenn will be taking another side trip to the Czech Republic after the upcoming Spanish shows, in order to perform and record with Monkey Business once again.

Looking forward to the outcome of those sessions based on the previous results

Looking forward to this also. Those last two tracks he did with them are really good. Especially "Silence"...that was right up Glenn's alley

Hi

Funny how this subject came up as only downloaded these two songs the other day

Isnt itunes brilliant. Mind you, it is missing a hell of a lot of well known albums by well known artists. These two songs are really good and i have to agree with Chip Silence is brilliant!!

Sounds like Glenn is also doing some of the vox on the song 'Kiss Me On My Ego' also but could be wrong. Is he on any of the other tracks. This band are really good, may download the whole album and others, and this style is most definitely suited to Glenn.

Paul

You can get it from these 2 Czech Republic based sites:

http://www.i-legalne.cz/

Their latest album is available via CD Baby:

Thanks for the multiple links and offers, David & Chip!



A quick look over to eBay, where I had never seen it btw. ... and there it is! Thanks to the strong Euro vs. the US-Dollar even cheaper than from our neighbours in the Czech Republic

Cheers,
Christian

Here's a rare insight "documentary" snippet to the recording process for the last album from Monkey Business featuring Glenn on a couple of songs.

I agree Chip, very cool to get a chance to see Papa doing his thing in such a casual atmosphere. I've heard some of thoses few monkey business songs through links on here, but I don't have them in my collection. I need to remedy that.
peace,

I am just guessing there is an amazing amount of one take recordings in Papa's discography. Talent like that blows my mind...and it ain't taught - it just IS

Can't wait to see him again, hopefully in Texas, that is if he hasn't decided to move to Russia for the train rides and cuisine

love ya, BD!!! LOL

The new Monkey Business album gets it's release next month. As mentioned earlier, Glenn will be featured on it. It's titled, "Twilight Of Jesters?". More details to follow, as they become available.

I had a copy of Kiss My Ego when i know that Glenn was on two songs....
Two weeks ago i bought on www.amazon.com the last one.
And last week, i received the three first one from www.cduniverse.com and it's incredible, what a wonderful band, a mix of Prince, Kool & The Gang with a rock twist.
Can't wait the next one featuring Glenn...
I have a dream : a complete album with Glenn on vocals because Glenn & these guys are relly looking in the same direction..., same funky vibe...
Don't miss this band !!!!

Later this month, Monkey Business will be over in Los Angeles with Glenn and they will film the second video for the song, "Gumball", which of course, features Glenn

Says Glenn...
Quote:
It's far and wide the best band! It fits perfectly with what I want to do, Glenn Hughes with funk and rock. I got lucky enough that i can sing funk, rock, jazz, soul and rhythm and blues and this team allows me to do just that.

Meantime, here is the first video for the song, "Who Killed My Libido?", parts of which were filmed at the recent gig back in December, when coincidentally, Glenn appeared live with them in Prague, Czech Republic

It's released on February 23rd, so no doubt after that, it will become more accessible. Keep an eye on their CD Baby page, I'm sure it'll appear there or Amazon first.
