"While you been sitting around surfing                the web, watching your ass get fatter, slowly losing what remains                of your social skills while allowing your opinions to be shaped                by the conjecture you read off the computer screen created by other                misanthropic individuals who seldom leave their rooms, the five                piece musical ensemble the Monorchid has been on the road getting                stronger while you’re hiding inside getting weaker. Let’s put to                rest all rumors and notions that the Monorchid is some sort of side                project. We’re a for real band and have been for the last year and                a half so check yourself. The Monorchid contains both the singer                and guitar player from the band Circus Lupus, as well as three other                super punk rock heroes whose previous musical apprenticeships are                equally as important. At this point in time all members of the Monorchid                are a bit tired of reciting their lengthy "punk pedigrees" so if                our previous ancient musical history is all that important to you                then you are really not that important to us.  “The Monorchid should be credited with totally revitalizing the                weak and diseased DC music community, and as we pull ourselves to                the top of the heap we are going to bring every other DC band with                us and that’s a promise.” Sincerely,The Monorchid (1997) 

It’s hard to articulate how great and criminally unknown this band is.
Hear/buy the Monorchid’s only in-print album, Who Put Out the Fire? at their Touch and Go page. Look up their name in a medical dictionary sometime if you need a good adolescent snicker.
Members of the Monorchid went on to perform with such fine bands as Skull Kontrol (1997-2000), the Wrangler Brutes (2001-2004) and the Red Eyed Legends (who played their last show on 7/25.) While they may eschew such bourgeois affectations as “consistent band identity,” much to the chagrin of slowpokes like me, they can do nothing but make fantastic rock’n’roll. I have great hope for the future.
(PS - Chunklet has kindly posted mp3s of the Monorchid’s '96 demo tapes.)

Ah, mem’ries. You can kinda see me in this one, far left, gazing mistily at Tim Kinsella while holding on to the girl in front of me for dear life.
