Coochie Kikuchi is the first non-cassette release by The Dead Monkeys and their first record in over 15 years. Recorded in Japan, Massachusetts, and Maine, the vastly different recording environments of this record are blended together beautifully by the tasteful mastering of Pete Weiss in his Verdant Studio located in the magical Kingdom of Vermont.


released December 31, 2011
