Metal To The Masses 2022 Interviews: The Shunkos (Heat #8 28.05.22)

Interviews With The Shunkos By Matt Bladen

MoM: Introduce yourselves/remind everyone who you guys are. Band name, members, style etc?

The Shunkos: We are the shunkos. A five piece garage/punk band from Port Talbot, South Wales. Our guitarist: Lewys Van Graham, drummer: Ollie Ryan, bassist: Keilan Colossus Ryan, vocals: Mal Thomas and Rhys Bloodstone

MoM: How have the last year(s) been for the band? What have you been up too?

The Shunkos: We started in lockdown because we couldn’t go to karaoke. We wrote our first original song within the first week, and have been writing since. We’ve recently recorded a 5 song EP which is set to be released very soon. Plenty to look forward to!

MoM: What experience have you had with Bloodstock/M2TM in the past?

The Shunkos: Our good mates, harbour way have played a few heats and we wanted a piece of the action!

MoM: How are you feeling entering the M2TM format back as it should be? Playing in front of a crowd again?

The Shunkos: If we couldn’t play in front of a crowd, we wouldn’t play at all! That’s what it’s all about

MoM: What would it mean to you to play Bloodstock?

The Shunkos: It would mean as much as a lump of cheese to a starving mouse!
MoM: Tell us two truths and a lie about the band?

The Shunkos: 

1. We derived our name from a local term which means ‘Scruff’ or ‘bogan’. 

2. Our guitarist is a relative of the legendary Eddie Van Halen. 

3. The grandfather of our bassist and drummer was a member of iconic Welsh psych-rock group, MAN

MoM: Finally give us a four word rundown of what to expect?

The Shunkos: Beer, noise, mullets, moustaches
