Monk & Canatella is an indie/breakbeat musical group from Bristol, England, formed by Simon Russell born in 1973 and Jim Johnston (born 1975) in the mid-nineties. Their 1996 album on Cup Of Tea Records, Care in the Community, is a prime example of the trip-hop sound.
The band later moved to Telstar and released a second album Do Community Service in 2000. The artwork for this album was an early collaboration with the Bristol born graffiti artist Banksy. The band parted company with the label shortly afterwards. The band is still producing music.
The band released the single "Straighthead" on YouTube on 23 December 2007.
Trip-hop band Portishead included a track titled "A Tribute to Monk and Canatella" on their 1994 CD single "Numb", a year before Monk & Canatella's first release.
