Thunder Monkey “Detonated” (2006)

An illustrated monkey holds a stick of dynamite while an atom bomb explodes in the background.

Thunder Monkey (2005-2010) was an impromptu project featuring Matthew Williams on guitar, Kevin Lyle on drums and Steve Abercrombie on bass. We never rehearsed any of the material and never wrote a setlist for the shows. We would plug in and start playing. Since Steve and I had been playing music together since 1994, there was plenty of material that flowed out. Thunder Monkey recorded the album “Detonated” with local sound guru Neal Yearta. Most tracks are first takes. Benji Shanks (guitar) featured on Trains and Chains. Artwork by Steve Abercrombie.
