"RED HOT CHILI PEPPERS: FUNKY MONKS"
Running time: 60 min.
Director: Gavin Bowden
Synopsis: Funky Monks is the title of a 1991 documentary (also the title of a song from the 1991 album Blood Sugar Sex Magik) about the rock band Red Hot Chili Peppers and the recording of their highly successful 1991 Warner Bros. debut Blood Sugar Sex Magik. The album was produced by Rick Rubin and recorded in a supposedly haunted house which Rubin now owns. The 60 minute documentary, which was filmed in black-and-white, features footage of the band recording many of the tracks that made the album, and tracks that were realeased a few years later (such as Soul to Squeeze and Sikamikanico). Footage from this documentary was also featured in the Suck My Kiss music video, which was released in 1992. Funky Monks was originally released on VHS but was re-released on DVD. The Chili Peppers returned to the mansion located in California to record their 2006 album, Stadium Arcadium.
