2 Sick Monkeys - Happy Days
Tight, melodic and in your face, 2 Sick Monkeys formed in 2000 and feature Fred Nus (drums/vocals) and Pete Tower (bass/vocals). Despite there only being two of them, the Swindon outfit still kick up a hell of a racket. If you check out their bandcamp page you'll find their back catalogue : https://2sickmonkeys.bandcamp.com/
They've been gigging regulars both at home and abroad and have shared a stage with the likes of The Buzzcocks, GBH, The Dickies, Discharge, Sham 69, Wonk Unit, Dirt Box Disco and many more.
There's a new ep in the pipeline but whilst we wait (and whilst I post a few updates via my phone that I got ready before going away on holiday!) here's a recent video they did for a song that was on last year's About Time ep.
A suicide note of sorts, this is Happy Days......
Inside, outside, upside down
All my life I've played the clown
I'll end it all in this dead-end (fucking) town
Nightmare stuck inside this hole
My brain is mush, I've lost control
How much further will I fall?
So much shit stuck in my head, I wish that I was dead
This way, that way, where to go?
Will I learn? I just don't know
Everything's I told you so
All these nights, all these regrets
I tried so hard but can't forget
All caught up with me in the end
