Thumpermonkey (aka Thumpermonkey Lives!) is a South London based band, making experiments with what you could call a ‘traditional’ rock sound. Big, radio-friendly vocals get warped into unsettling, uncompromising tunes that refuse to go where they should. Lyrics too are nice and dense and stand up on their own – a rarity these days, when all the effort usually goes into the composing.
Thumpermonkey have just about to release a new album, ‘Sleep Furiously’, which you can hear via their web site if you’re quick (free streaming until Oct 31st).

Previous albums, including Other Rock Show fave ‘We Bake Our Bread Beneath Her Holy Fire’, are available from their Bandcamp:
