The Junk

Brighton Beach ska-punkers ‘the Junk’ unleash their hotly anticipated debut full length album “Problem.

Reaction. Solution.” on 12th September 2011 through 12 Step and available from all digital stores. In support of their upcoming record launch, the energetic posse
also undertake further UK and European shows to follow.

With a host of influences spanning from 60’s soul legend ‘Sam Cooke’ and 80’s pop merchants ‘Men at Work’, right through to fellow UK ska-nuts ‘Capdown’, the Junk spew out alluring original ska-core punk fueled with political rage and wit. Boasting skanking guitars and enticing dub bass grooves that cross swords with jack hammer beats and earnest melodies, the band forge a sound that will undeniably bear its mark!

Since their inception back in 2008, the Junk have built a sturdy live reputation for their hard working ethos and fantastic live shows, and have played numerous shows throughout mainland Europe and the UK. Along the way, the animated punksters have played shows with the likes of Capdown, Big D and the Kids Table, Catch 22, the Skints, Random Hand, Citizen Fish, and Rentokill. To cap this, the frenetic eight-piece are prepared to announce a full UK and European tour for the summer with their sights on touring Japan and East coast USA at the end of the year.

The high-flying skankers have already been widely touted by the national press for their stunning debut EP, ‘Novus Ordo Seclorum’, which was recorded, mixed and mastered by Dave Chang (CAPDOWN/LIGHTYEAR). The UK mobsters also bagged critical acclaim and coverage from Big Cheese Magazine, Kerrang!, Rocksound, Powerplay and Rhythm through to extensive radio play on Kerrang! Radio and many independent stations. Hot on the heels of their debut EP, the Brighton crew were snapped up by hip Swiss label ‘Bad Mood Records’ who set about co-releasing the band’s debut full length album ‘Problem. Reaction. Solution’ . Now loaded with a stunning debut album, which packs 14 neatly-woven tracks from the juggernaut rhythms and potent delivery of ‘Left for Dead’, to the insanely contagious live fave ‘Scream Your Dreams’, the Junk have crafted a truly delectable beast that is ready and primed for the taking.
