ABOUT

This is a conceptual program 17 years in the making. Much like Darwinian Evolutionary Theory, this process has taken time to cipher out the bad "genes", leaving the strong to survive. Two musicians, heavy into the funky side of musical meanderings, lean towards bass-and-drum driven grooves, with minimal guitar interference. Because of a "touring schedule" that defies music, ideas are streamed, stripped, and progressively changing until the genius of the trio maintains their unique standard of the ideal and forges it into their soundbytes. A continuum of everchanging social factions, abuse, compulsion and just plain heart-and-soul for rock-and-roll amalgamate into what is now and will forever be: monkeyBrain.
