MUNKY are an alt-rock band with a disco edge, born from a freak accident in which a shipment of Tesco lager cans collided with Chic’s tour bus. From the flaming wreck emerged something beautiful, made up of deep and heavy bass grooves, distorted kaleidoscopic guitar sounds carried by pulsing beats and topped off with blues melodies. Drawing influxes from 70s disco and funk, 90s grunge and modern day psychedelia to produce their distinct sound. Their live shows are tight, loud, funky, high octane, memorable and most importantly fun.
