2 Sick Monkeys formed in December 2000, as a live two piece bass and drums, primarily to support Darrin Mooney (Primal Scream) at a drum event in Swindon.
They have now played over 780 gigs, including 8 European tours.
They have built up a strong live following and have supported bands such as Nomeansno, Subhumans, Anti-Nowhere League, GBH, Discharge, The Varukers, The Dickies, Total Chaos, UK Subs, Inner Terrestrials, Misfits, The Buzzcocks, Goldblade, 999, Citizen Fish, Vice Squad, Sham 69, Targetpoint, Captain Everything, Neville Staples, The Vibrators, Sonic Boom Six, The Fight and Lord Bishop Rocks.
Their influences range from the complex rhythms of Nomeansno to the catchy melodies of Green Day.
