'The Junk Monkeys' was also the name of a power-pop/punk band from Detroit, MI. They released three rare, but influential albums in the early 1990s on Metal Blade/Warner Brothers. The recent Detroit rock and roll renaissance owes a large debt to this overlooked band. They've since broken up, but their records and songs can still be found on eBay and iTunes.
Last night, we heard The Junk Monkeys on the radio and cranked it up.
