BIO | Reverse Chronology
In Brief:
Uncle Monsterface is fun, high energy nerd rock that stares you down from across the bar and dares you not to have a good time with them. They make songs about ninjas, Nintendo, D&D, lobsters, and life. Their live shows often include giant dancing monsters, notably one that shares the name with the band, and is also a sock puppet. As a matter of fact, many of their songs are about real sock puppets. Listen up and get down.

“[Uncle Monsterface] lifts you up and makes you feel powerful.”
-James Kochalka, american elf, on uncle monsterface’s ‘this is an adventure’

“Is the music catchy? Yes! Are the lyrics odd and quirky? Of Course! But are the songs themselves somehow devalued by these two elements? Hell no! While Uncle Monsterface like to paint themselves as goodtime guys making music that requires naught but a modicum of conscious thought on the part of their listeners, they are, in fact, **dum–dum–daaaaah** emotionally resonant.” -Geekdad Z, HipsterPlease

Less Brief: The UNCLE is back.
UNCLE MONSTERFACE is now drums, guitar, and many many keyboards with Marty singing while he plays bass. Paradise Dan is still stealing hearts and minds (and souls) with his rock guitar prowess and boy-ish charms. Epic Eric Swanson still hits drums with sticks. Hard. And in 2012 we’ve been super-excited to introduce the Keyboard-Slaying styling of Hidden Harlan Muir, Submarine Commander-at-large. The sock puppets have started making appearances again, but it’s mostly Rock Out City.

UNCLE MONSTERFACE is currently recording selections from their forthcoming full-length album, “The RISE of the LAVA MEN”, the story of a rag-tag band of ancient superheroes, as unearthed under the ashes of New Ashville City (in the shadow of Mt. Bombpei), Dino-skeleton Island. This will be their first full length album since 2008’s “This Is an Adventure”, and the first-ever recordings of an all-live Uncle Monsterface.

Rest assured, the sock puppets (and the Perfect Jimmy) are always lodged firmly inside of their collective hearts (a condition that is actually twice as painful as it sounds).

We here at Monsterface Industries are thrilled about our current status like poorly monitored children eating oversized ice cream cones while riding a talking roller coaster that goes underwater and back in time.

Originally a trio from Boston, Uncle Monsterface began simply – hanging out and making up rock songs. The founding members, Marty Allen, ‘Paradise’ Dan Brennan, and ‘Perfect ‘Jimmy Bernardinelli met in college and while working on a local cable access variety show. Frontman Marty Allen had accumulated many songs (Marty’s Song A Day – and sock puppets and needed help – Uncle Monsterface was formed/birthed/conjured.

The boys suddenly found themselves living inside a giant treehouse/volcano with a sock puppet who was also a monster who was also a power inside of them. A simple rock show quickly escalated into a ‘multimedia fiasco and/or experience’. The boys released two full length albums, two EPs, many strange videos (including a variety show and sock puppet soap opera), and toured nationally. There was a sock puppet stage, giant monsters, accompanying synchronized videos projected on their bed-sheet fort theater.

And then, more recently, there wasn’t.

  5. Hi blogger, i found this post on 23 spot in google’s search results.
    I’m sure that your low rankings are caused by hi
    bounce rate. This is very important ranking factor.
    One of the biggest reason for high bounce rate
    is due to visitors hitting the back button. The higher your bounce rate the further down the
    search results your posts and pages will end up, so having reasonably low bounce rate
    is important for increasing your rankings naturally.
    There is very useful wp plugin which can help you. Just search in google for:
