skateboard and tshirts now in merchandise store.
Wonk are on fire, without question the strongest line up of musicians and silliest bunch of assholes ever. We all want this, everyone is pulling in the same direction these days. Touring is a joy. I live vicariously through “the kids”, drummer Max and Vezzy. Looking back, the turning point for Wonk was when these joined 4 odd years ago. I’ve watched the pair of them grow every fuckin gig into the bad ass professional musicians they are today. Max should be session drumming, i promise you he won’t disappoint if you use him for recording. I am so proud of Vezzy. Her songwriting makes me sick it’s so good, like, i wish I’d written those songs. Our voices work soooo well together, she makes me sound like am angel which makes me very happy.
We have TWO guitars now!!! AJ is that reliable foundation that creats the rhythmic wall and Ryan is so totally insane, like TOTALLY INSANE on guitar that i burst out laughing at the absurdity of his genius most gigs.
Then there’s that old reliable workhouse, my bestest, most cherished silly friend Pwosion. As long as that dusty bin keeps turning up to gigs then i’ll keep smiling. The James Bond of punk rock, the secret agent, the funniest most beautiful soul in the history of punk rock.
I love you all guys. Thanks for doing this journey with me, i know I’m bonkers but I’m pretty sure we have the bestest fun ever right?
Then there’s YOU, our fam. Without you we are nothing. You’re continued support of my fucked up life is NEVER taken for granted. I genuinely love you and thank you with all my heart.
My fuckin head is still working!!!!!
Truely amazing to feel human again. Guess what? I’VE FINISHED THE MERCH!!!!!! HOOOORAY!!!
The post office won’t have to see my apologetic face every day for a while!!!
Thank you all for being patient. Time to move forward, gotta get the webshop updated, there’s some sick stuff I haven’t been able to put up until I’d cleared the backlog of orders caused by Uncle Daddy arriving over 6 months late and stuff out of my control in my home life.
I’ve done a big interview with Jugs on his Spotify Podcast, take a listen here.
Also, LOOK AT THESE DATES!!!!! There’s another tour in June we are waiting on announcing with some American Friends yay.
Lastly, SUPER STOKED to be coming to Ireland next week. Yesterday’s drama got sorted!!! Love you all soooo much. Alex x
