MonkeyJunk – All Frequencies
10 tracks; 43 minutes

by JOHN MITCHELL. MonkeyJunk’s last CD “To Behold” did very well for the band and impressed with its variety of styles and full sound from a bass-less trio.  The new CD maintains the same production team of Steve Marriner and Ken Friesen and was again recorded in Ontario.  Steve sings lead, plays harp, keys and baritone guitar; Tony D plays guitar and Matt Sobb drums with both adding background vocals.  The material is all original apart from one cover and two writers from outside the band contribute to four of the tracks.
