a blues-based rock with a british salsa twist

Biography

Following an old rock and roll tradition, the monas are constantly searching for the roots of their musical influences. Pipe (vocals/guitar), Juan (drums), Nando (guitar) and Francisco (bass) met in sunny Miami Beach in the year 2000. After numerous encounters with the blues and other sounds of the heartland, where everything is handed down and nothing comes from nothing, the band began to define their artistic vision. The monas' first album was recorded at The Audiolounge Studios (Miami,Fl) and will be available early 2006 at www.themonas.com. The first single, “Cae La Noche” is already playing regularly on radio stations nationwide, (New York, California, New Jersey, Virgina and Florida). The video for "cae la noche" will soon be aired on MTVLa. Please check www.myspace.com/themonas and ww.themonas.com for more news, concert dates, pictures and music.

Lyrics

she goes down

Written By: the monas

She comes in handy when i'm out on the street
She calls me honey when i dance to her beat
Then she goes down....Then she goes down

She stays around me when i've been all alone
She's self destructive and i'm coming along
Then she goes down...Then she goes down

Chorus:
But when the love runs out
And i'm back in a different world
She's been all over town
I'll find her anyday i want to

She feels at home when she is being part of the scene
Her place of work is at the Holiday inn
Then she goes down...Then she goes down

I never wanna see her going away
I need your money is what i guess she would say
Then she goes down....Then she goes down

Chorus:
But when the love runs out
And i'm back in the real world
She's been all over town
she'll find me anyday she wants to

(bridge)
I'm going crazy i have nothing else to do
She's got me tied up from my head to my boots
She's got nothing, nothing, nothing to loose
nothing, nothing, nothing to loose

The day i met her i started changing my tunes
I think it's fair to say she changed me too soon
She's got nothing, nothing, nothing to loose
nothing, nothing, nothing to loose

Chorus:
Love runs out
and you're back in the real world
She's been all over town
I'll find her anyday I want to
