The Bonk is a project formed out of new recordings begun in 2014 by Phil Christie(O Emperor)at Big Skin studios in Cork, Ireland.
Borrowing a term used to describe a state of mental and physical collapse, The Bonk often uses layered competing rhythms and extended improvisations in a way that tends towards estrangement from the familiar. Time and time again, The Bonk plays (upon) ideas of time and repetition, repetition and time.
‘Ancestor’, the debut track from The Bonk will be available for free download from Bandcamp from Wednesday 30th March 2016.
