Thumpermonkey Roast Fest

The Roast Fest was a tremendous free all-dayer put on by Kavus Torabi’s Believers Roast label. The bands were paid by splitting the proceeds from the companion compilation CD “Believers Roast Presents: The Central Element” album. I would heartily recommend this if you like music that is “beautiful, far out and unusual”.

Thumpermonkey are a sonically amazing three-piece (soon to be four-piece) who make a complex, dynamic and heavy noise. Right up my street and I was blown away by the tight solid bottom end they maintained using only two Telecasters and Boss Octavers driving a bass amp.

They were also very entertaining and great fun to watch and photograph.
