Monotremes is my band that existed from 1997 to 1999 in Edwardsville, Illinois. We only made one album, called A Bug Is Our Audience, but it features 14 quality college-pop songs. It was also featured on the Fox and the Hounds jukebox for about three years. This song, "Winter of My Youth," was a 17th Street crowd favorite. I hadn't played it in 10 years. But here's the acoustic version.
