How it began…

It all came together when guitarist Emilio “Fingers” Valentine met bass-player Jeff “Whenever-You-Like” Randall in a laundrette on the corner of 52nd and Chichester; Jeff was couch-surfing temporarily at the apartment of drummer Long “Tim” Poslin and had stepped out to rinse some cloths. A mixup with some pin-striped underpants led to a mid-sized brawl, a visit to hospital to reset a broken finger, and a small-claims court summons for a clogged tumble-drier, but ultimately also to the writing of the song, “Pork Conundrum”. Shockwaves from this momentous evening rippled across the Atlantic to England, where in a Denmark Street basement Monkey Fighters were finishing their album. The rest is history.
