Darling Pet Munkee

Yes, I know it's not Mail Order Monday. Although maybe I should have saved this post for then! What I'm talking about today is a local area band called Darling Pet Munkee.

The band name is derived from both the sale of living squirrel monkeys via ads (like the above for Darling Pet Monkey) and the combination of Sophia Cacciola (drums, vocals) and Michael J. Epstein (bass, vocals) of The Prisoner-themed act, Do Not Forsake Me Oh My Darling, and Catherine Capozzi (guitars) of Axemunkee.

They've recently posted the next two videos from their EP "Glows in the Dark."  All the songs on the EP are about mail order items of yesteryear. The EP is available for whatever price you want to pay here. Highly recommend that you do!

You can scope out this double feature, complete with horror hostess Dalya, on the YouTube. And don't miss their first video, X-Ray Specs. The tune will be stuck in your head for days!

You can find out more about Darling Pet Munkee on Facebook and on their blog. The blog has a post for each song from the EP and explores the background of the mail order item. There's also some behind the scenes stuff from the video shoots.

And I would be remiss if I didn't also mention the below book by Kirk Demaris of Secret Fun Blog. The book makes a cameo in the video for Dracula's Dirt!
