Formed in 1991, the band is named after a poem by Robert Lowell entitled “Skunk Hour”. The band’s sound combined elements of funk, rock, hip hop, and dub.
A number of singles, most notably “Home”, “Up to our Necks in it”, and “Sunstone” achieved some commercial success. Well known for their dynamic, energetic live show they enjoyed a large live fan base throughout their existence. They toured Europe twice as well as playing in New York and Tokyo.
Between 1995 and 2000, Skunkhour had four songs inducted into Triple J’s Hottest 100. In 1995, “Up To Our Necks In It” reached #55, “Weightlessness” reached #93 in 1997, “Home” reached #82 in 1999, and “Kick In The Door” reached #83 in 2000.
In October 2014 they will be hitting the stage at Caloundra Music Festival!
