Why is Junkyphunk becoming one of the most popular underground bands on the scene today? Open your mind to a new idea, and maybe you will understand why more people are tuning in. It's good stuff. Melodic, heavy, intellectual and depraved...and it works. It is great music forming a tapestry of sound which is beautifully aggressive.
Junkyphunk is not trying to gain mass approval. It knows that is a "here today, gone tomorrow" approach. The weird thing is that Junkyphunk IS gaining mass approval.
The man behind Junkyphunk, Philip Lee, is a man torn between the need to foster life and understanding and the need to destroy it all.
"Holy crap! you guys sound like a hurt cat! And it's not punk. Hard Rock. But after listening to it, unfortunately, I liked it in a way. It was a like-hate kinda thing. so i liked it, but i hated it at the same time. OK i've been sitting here for a while after it got done, listening to it again, and it's very, very catchy. I love it."
"Awesome aggresive vocals. But what adds that little extra touch to this amazing stuff is the syntheziser. Hard and beefy production with a drum machine(?) that works great! Original and AWESOME!!"
"...demonstrates a great development of ideas and layers of juxtaposed elements..is as melancholy and heavy as anything you'll hear on the local hard-rock station." - Dave Madden, SpendidEzine
