Monkhouse were from Bangor, Co.Down in Northern Ireland named after the legendary Bob Monkhouse whose dedication to showbiz had, in many ways, influenced them. A great raw, good old fashioned punk band, the lead singer Keith, would be off the stage as much as he was on it.
Described by the band in 1995 as ‘What punk should be / powerful. energetic but always clever’ ‘an absolute stormer of a band’ angry’ and ‘casually dressed’!
‘Cakey Pig’ was released on CD on the 15th of May 1995
In 2021 they were featured on our Christmas compilation ‘A Damaged Christmas Gift For You’ doing their version of Cliff’s ‘Mistletoe And Wine’ that had originally appeared on DAMPUD57, their version is called ‘Guinness And Wine’
