Monk & Canatella were an indie/breakbeat musical group from Bristol, England, formed by Simon Russell and Jim Johnston 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.
