Formed in 2015, Chris Pritchard & Jamie Warren started rehearsing song ideas which would become the band’s signature style, with Electric Guitar and Drums. The pair gained an intimate musical understanding mixing Blues Rock with an Alternative twist singing about personal tales of love and loss.
With influences such as The Black Keys, Royal Blood, Queens of the Stone Age & Gary Clark Jr. the band’s sound of foot-stomping drum grooves, growling bass tone, piercing guitar and powerful, vibrant vocals create a modern Alternative Rock sound.
Kev, Chris and Mark formed Monkfish around 1995 having previously been involved in a band together. After a few rehearsals as a 3-piece Andy joined on bass guitar, a duty previously undertaken by Kev. With Kev now on rhythm guitar and vocals Monkfish gigged for a couple of years, mainly around the Oxford area. We think that Monkfish disbanded in 1997 though we’re not 100% sure. No one seems to remember the reason why!. Now reformed with the original line-up Monkfish are gigging and writing new material.
