Sheep Records was a Swiss underground label specialized in Garage-Rock, Surf, Lounge and other Rock'n'Roll oddities. Run by Christian Müller from Zürich, along with friends Andi Frick and Andreas Egi, it was active from 1996 to 2004 and published about 30 releases, mostly on 7" vinyl singles.

In october 2006, after about two years of hiatus, all the contents of the now defunct Sheep Records website were deleted from the Internet, and replaced with a blank page announcing that "Der Kebab ist gegessen" ("The kebab is eaten"), a last goodbye and a reference to the label's cataloguing system that included the prefix "kebab" for vinyl releases and "gigot" for CD releases.

The second Sheep Records release was a 7" picture disc by Monsoon, a short-lived side project that included ex-members of the Swiss bands Run Chicken Run and Bishop's Daughter. The single was released in June 1997 and was limited to 500 copies. This was Monsoon's only official release.

Here's the track list and a few notes for this release:

01. And Now... (7:02)
02. 'Cause They Know What You Don't (7:20)

A psychotic embracement, symphonic in it's derangement...
