Say no to Sweat Shops!

Alex Wonk says no to sweatshops

Love J and the No Sweat family. Been doing their bit to make the world a better place since Wonk started.

I’m in no position to preach here, I skate Nike SB and print the majority of our tees on Gildan. However, whenever possible we do use shirts supplied by Punk Ethics and Wonkfest merch is printed exclusively on their ethically sources threads.

Aint a major ballache and genuinely every shirt does make a difference.

In the Studio

Recording studio for the next 2 days with the delightful Andy Brook (who we recorded with on Trolleys and Muffy).

Never really have a clue what i’m gonna do or how the record is gonna turn out. It is gonna be called Mr Splashy though.

My mum calls me that whenever i get near a sink. I always leave puddles everywhere. I like the name Mr Splashy. x

2014 Year of the Wonk

Wonk Unit and Meansteed at Pboro gig

So we finished our Wonky year of gigging in the delightful Maidenhead last night where we heavily sexed up the crowd!! You should have seen them! They were tooooo horny for us!! We thought we were going to be ripped apart like what lions do!!!
Luckilly we were able to pacify their horny loins with something like a 30 song set!! Lovely gig, lovely people! Thank You the MAidenhead!
What a brilliant year 2014 has been for us! We’ve pretty much gigged every weekend since Nervous Racehorse came out in MArch!!! It’s been BRILLIANT!!!
Got one last acoustic bash at the Brixton Windmill on the 23rd and that’s it for the year!
2015 is already looking busier than ever. We are already proper booked up to November! Mental!!
We love our Wonky lives and Wonk fam!! You lot are the BEST!!!!!
Love you all very much, FOR REAL!!!
As Jesus said to the children, ” Look after the boys with dusty shoes! for they are richer than a crock of gold!”
Yes! That’s you!! You are like Jesus speaking to a group of school children about shoes!!”

Model on the northern line

Alex at Hunstanton

Model on the northern line

Doth the world desire you so my dear?
Bambi lashes
Porcelain pout
We the normal
We the just ok
Who’s eyes are drawn
To that perfect alien
Graceful in tatters
Holding the carriages attention
With that nonchalon look of
You are nothing
I have the company of princes and night club owners.
We have nothing in common
Behind these eyes
I think only in diamonds.

Vinyl Compilation; Need Your Suggestions

OK, i’ve been talking about a Wonk compilation album on vinyl for a while now and it looks like it will actually come to fruition this year.Choosing the songs is a fucking nightmare though??? 4 songs from each album- Soooo hard.
Ok so Jap flag, we gotta have Mistake right? Streets of Soho? Train loony? Girlfriend is a lunatic is pretty classic no?

Trolleys Thank you- Los angeles? I just love the way? Back of the van? Guts?

Muffy- Donkey of the Damned? Horses? Plasterer? Tortured genius? Elbows?

Should we even have Racehorse songs on it (as this is our current album) or should we add some new ones?
This album is primarily for the American market. A good representation of all things Wonk. So we need some Racehorse tracks right? Lewisham? Nan? Kings road? Go easy?
Fuck, it’s too hard.
16 songs. The definitive Wonk!
4 from each album?
Suggestions (again) please.( i know we’ve been here before) – Head over to our Facebook page to make your suggestions.

A Long Fun Weekend; 4 Wonk Gigs

Wonk Unit Playing outdoors

Alex in a Field4 gigs in one weekend!! Owl sanctuary, fish finger arm chair gig, steamboat Ipswich, and Malcfest.. Dan, Paul,Rob and Ben we love you! Thanks for being lovely brilliant Wonkers.

Everyone we met on our travels this weekend, we salute you! What fun we had!! Thank you for making us feel special and loved!
I can only apologize for Keef and his riot inducing behaviour at the steamboat in Ippo!
Benny boy put on the raddest all dayer with the nicest crowd. Full on lovely heads.
Why did you go and ruin it all by listening to Keef’s hatefully detructive rants!!
Punk rocks shows are not for bopping and having fun!!!
I warn everyone in future- just because Keef tells you all to fuck the soundman in the ear because he isn’t doing his job, doesn’t mean you all have to get your minkys and binkys out and milk yourself over the poor miserable souls eyes!
He was blinded in semen and vinegar!!
Ippo was my fav show this weekend Wilko! Thank you. I’m really sorry the Steamboat put you in such an uncomfortable situation.
Best weekend!! Owl Sanctuary – Amazing!! Fish Finger – delightful! Ippo- Christ has risen!!! Malcfest- Wonderful!!!
Abs!! Thank you for driving us and getting us all home safe!! The best!!!

You are all wonderful!!!
I have nothing but love for humanity!!

Alex xxxx
