You know them, you love them

Daddy Wonk used to be in a band called The Flying Medallions back in the early 1990’s when the punk scene was well underground.  They kinda crossed over into the mainstream and the music press would get themselves into a right tiz over the chaos they caused.

Riots and chaos at every show.

But live by the sword, die by the sword…

The chaos caught up in late 95 when the band suffered a fatal tour bus crash in France. Bassist Dougie didn’t make it and MC Mr Stephen suffered critical injuries (He made a full recovery).

They released the album “We love everybody and everything’s great” in 1994. (now available on Itunes).

The name Wonk Unit came about like this:-

About 5 years ago,myself and original Wonk axe man Gavin “Mad Dog” Kinch were laying a crazy paving driveway.

It was miserable,cold and wet,and then it started snowing on our sorry asses, and i looked over and said;

“Look at us,we’re a right f**king Wonk Unit aint we!”

“Wonk Unit” we exclaimed.
What a great name for a band.
So there you have it.
A reference to the cold pathetic miserable and depressed.
A description that sums us up perfectly in no way whatsoever.
