About


With their unique blend of 50’s rock and 70’s punk and their increasingly talked about live performances; where drum sets are used as jumping platforms, food fights ensue and an occasional head bleeds, The Monolators have come a long way since their beginning in 2002 with Eli Chartkoff (vocals, guitar) his wife Mary (drums) and Ray Gurrola (guitar) releasing several EP’s and LP’s along the way including Don’t Dance, Silver Cities, Our Tears Have Wings and much more. They have been featured by LA Times and LA Weekly and have been played on KCRW, KXLU and the now defunct Indie103.1.
