Monkeywrench's Tim Kerr Unveils Top Ten

As if it hasn't been long enough (almost 8 years, to be exact), we're proud to announce the return of Monkeywrench with a new studio album, Gabriel's Horn (Birdman). Featuring Mudhoney's Mark Arm and Steve Turner, plus The Big Boys' Tim Kerr, this supergroup's return has been long overdue. In honor of the album's February 25 release, we enlisted guitarist Kerr to bestow everyone with the top ten records that helped inspire the bounty that is Gabriel's Horn. Be on the lookout for more details and exclusive content soon.
