Event Details

Formed in 1991, The Monkeywrench are a super group of sorts.

Founded by members of the classic Seattle band Mudhoney, Mark Arm & Steve Turner with guitarist for bands such as the Big Boys and Poison 13, Tim Kerr, The Monkeywrench was intended to be a sort of one time, one LP band.

Along with Tom Price from the U-Men & Gas Huffer plus Martin Bland from Australian noise rockers Lubricated Goat they ended up recording three LPs; "Clean As A Broken Dick Dog" (1992), "Electric Children" (2000) & "Gabriel's Horn" (2008)

Earlier this year, the band reunited to play ATP Festival in the UK plus shows in Seattle & London. With another performance at Sound on Sound Festival in Austin this November, the band decided to add Australia to their schedule making this the very first time The Monkeywrench have come to our shores. With another reformation unlikely in the foreseeable future this could be the only time to see these legendary players on the one stage together as The Monkeywrench.
