from the Mono Men
John “Mort” Mortensen, guitar player for the Mono Men, Bellingham’s legendary garage-punk band, joins Jon and Boosie in the KMRE studios. He brings with him seven songs that have influenced his life and the band. John says: “It’s how you play, not what you play” which pretty much sums up John “Mort” Mortensen’s philosophy of music.
Garage bands take over the hour with songs by The Sonics, Easybeats, Link Wray, Buzzcocks and more. Another show NOT to miss.
The Mono Men released more than 7 albums and EPs between 1990 and 1997, and have played throughout Europe, North America, South America, and Japan. Their most recent appearances include shows in Mexico, Brazil and Argentina in 2013 as well as blowout performances for Bellingham fans at the Green Frog and Wild Buffalo.
