They are now history, having played their last concert in London on March 6th, 2011, but this live video of kamikaze Israeli garage/noise rockers Monotonix is a fun souvenir from one of their frenzied final performances. Shot at the Echoplex in Los Angeles.
With no money available for a music video, director Julien Nitzberg (“The Wild and Wonderful Whites of West Virginia”) put out a call for Monotonix friends and fans to bring any manner camera or iPhone to document this show from their farewell tour.
The Monotonix later described this as the most chaotic, violent show they ever played. Because the band always insisted on playing in the crowd not on the stage, one camera and an iPhone were accidentally destroyed when crowd members, surging to get close to the band, knocked over the camera operators.
The Monotonix were Ami Shalev, Yonatan Gat, and Haggai Fershtman.
