A memoir by Monks bass player Eddie Shaw, it is the other story about Hamburg and Germany in the 1960s.

Shaw claims that the British Invasion and groups like the Beatles were the result of long hours in the beat clubs of Germany and Hamburg.

The Monks played in the same club as the Beatles had played before them - The Top Ten Club in Hamburg. The "Beat" culture was strong.

According to Alan Dein of BBC, the Hamburg scene started with groups like the Beatles and "ended with their reaction, the Monks." They knew the same people, but that is where their shared experiences ended.
