Monkeyspank - Demons Flew Out Of My Mouth

Here is an artifact from the Baltimore music scene in 1990: Monkeyspank's first album, the 7-song Demons Flew Out Of My Mouth on Merkin Records. The entry on Monkeyspank reads:
Monkeyspank was a Baltimore hard rock/funk band active in the late 1980s and early 1990s. Monkeyspank featured an unusual lineup of three drummers/percussionists, two bass players, and a guitarist.Monkeyspank’s sound owes equal debts to guitar-driven heavy rock and polyrythmic funk, in some degree similar to the Red Hot Chili Peppers (albeit with a much darker edge) and local Baltimore contemporaries The All Mighty Senators. They released two albums, the vinyl-only Demons Flew Out of My Mouth and Blue Mud.
The band lineup was: Bill Corsello, Allison Futeral, Dave Kahle, Kevin Keelty, Kendall King and Brian Rice. The track listing of Demons is:
1 Snakejuice
2 1000 Dead Jim Backuses
3 Akio's Dad
4 I Am Sam
5 Dr. Omar
6 Hero
7 I Shake My Stick

How cool! I have this record, but no usb turntable, and have been looking for a rip of it for a long time.

I was briefly in touch with Kevin Keelty a couple of years ago, and tried to get him to write up a more complete band description, but it never went anywhere, so I wrote the graf you quoted. It's a shame more people don't know about them; great records, and unbelievable live.

I own the Blue Bud cd. one of the most interesting bands I've heard. I saw them twice here in Lou.KY in the 90ies. Found one of the bass player on myspace back in 2009. Great live band!
