Legendary Canadian scum punk band SHLONK, originally from Montreal, are a somewhat a mix hamper of grungy hardcore, precocious art punk and crusty metal. Originally, an all-girl band with the exception of stage-transvestite Al on vocals, they tranny-splanted themselves in NYC playing alongside similar groups on the fringe of hardcore like GWAR and LUNA CHICKS and also befriending GG ALLIN along the way. They were responsible (more like culpable) for the only time GG ALLIN left the US. In fact, a couple SHLONK girls including guitarist Angie backed him as the SWANFUCKS at the Shock Art Festival in Montreal in 1988. By the mid 90's, SHLONK had a couple records out and were squatting around Europe and playing to all kinds of sick audiences, but were nearly disbanded by 2000 and Angie came to live in Japan for a while. Fast forward to 2009, Angie and Al have regrouped in Vancouver and played their first few shows in Tokyo, Yokohama and Chiba. Now in May 2012, they have returned with their scum onslaught and will reunite with numerous old friends as well as play with some new insane bands at select live spots in Yokohama & Tokyo.
