[November '11]Euro Tour 2011 BLOG!!!

This years European Tour was great fun and we want to say a massive, gert big thanks to the following people for making it as good as it was:
Dave, James, Si & Tom (Rash Decision - legends!!) - it was a pleasure (again!!) chaps, proper job and roll on next year!! .

SPA, Paris, France (Oct 20)
Francky and Eurokunt, Benji and the distro man, the food people, the crazy people and the dogs.
It was ace to play with Eurokunt again and the after show consisted of a whole Motorhead album and some Dead Kennedys and, as usual, a crazy, drunken jam session.
Cracking night as always and can't wait to go back next year - whether it's in the same building or not....we'll be there!!

Saal, Mannheim, Germany (Oct 21)
Nachtwandel 2011 - Part 1
Rox and her Mum and Dad for sorting the gig, a place to stay and a great breakfast.
Iris, Inge and Uli for all their help and generosity at the venue.
Chicago Mary for the gig offers and 8 Balls On Fire for a top set.

Saal, Mannheim, Germany (Oct 22)
Nachtwandel 2011 - Part 2
Iris, Inge and Uli (again!!) for all their help and generosity at the venue. Iris also gave us a place to stay and some (more) beers and a couple of 'goodie bags' that we, sadly but luckily, left behind :)
Mondo Guzzi for a great set and Karmacopter for being the best band we've seen for a long, long time - amazing!!!
Also, on both nights, there were people we'd met when we played in 2009, it was great to see you all again and to meet some new crazy people - including the metal fan who got his mate to smash a beer bottle on his head...priceless!!
Both nights in Mannheim were mental...the crowds were nuts!!! Loved it!!!

The Nachtwandel is a street festival that happens every year in October in one part of Mannheim and there are all kinds of events going on in venues and in the street, with loads and loads of people everywhere and everything's free entry...hard to explain in a few words...if you get the chance go see for yourself, you'll love it too :)

Tempo Underground, Havlíckuv Brod, Czech Republic (Oct 23)
Last minute gig, good blagging by Dave Decision!!
Great little club, nice people and fun night.
Thanks to Jakub at Cecek Records, the bar owners, Phillip the English teacher and the people who came along to party with us, nice one!!
There's a video of 'Happy Days' from this gig HERE
Tempo Underground

Motorkárské Doupe, Humpolec, Czech Republic (Oct 24)
This one was quite strange :) An outdoor biker pub at the end of October in the Czech Republic - not the hottest place we'll ever play!!
It was an afternoon gig and there weren't many people there (I don't think it hit double figures) but the people there were pretty cool.
The owner was a great bloke (I think he recorded the gig) and a man called Petr took some cool photos and you can check them out HERE
We also did a voice-over for a radio station (Radio Doupe) which was fun :)

Stará Kovárna, Štoky u Jihlavy, Czech Republic (Oct 24)
Thanks to Jakub at Cecek Records (again) for this one (and the one above) and also for letting us stay for a couple of days at his house.
It was a Monday night, so fairly quiet, but still a pretty good gig. Love these little pubs in the middle of nowhere, great places to play!!
Thanks to Jakub at Cecek Records, the bar owners, Phillip the English teacher and the people who came along to party with us, nice one!!
The sets were good and we then set about polishing off as much Czech beer and vegetation as we could...proper job!!

Biograffs Club, Decín, Czech Republic (Oct 25)
Thanks to Sandra for sorting the gig out for us and to Rene and Veronika at the Club.
Also a big shout out to our new mates from France, BG du 57, who we played 2 gigs geezers!!
Really liked this gig, great club, top sets, top food and a good laugh.
The beers went down well and so did the free shots and the (not so free but gratefully received) Absinthe's...steaming!!!
Rene and Veronika let us stay at the Club, which was appreciated, even if some of us didn't remember how we got to the sleeping room :)
Proper good breakfast the next day too...result!!

Florida Pub, Horovice, Czech Republic (Oct 26)
This was a cracker!!! Massive thanks to Egy, this is the 4th gig we've played for him, in 4 different places, and they've all been brilliant!!! He is a legend!!! :)
It was also great to see Jackie (from Jackie's Pub - we played there for Egy in April 2010) another man!!!
Good crowd, great food, free beer and top sets from the bands...what more can you ask for?
Well, a lot of free shots!!! Like they were going out of fashion ha ha
We were joined by BG du 57, again, for this one and a pleasure it was too :)
Big thanks to all of the people buying us the shots and taking shedloads of photos, it was great fun to meet you all and party...nice one!!!

Boss Bar, Podebrady, Czech Republic (Oct 27)
Our last night in the Czech Republic and a pretty bloody good one too!!!
Big thanks to Sandra (again!!) for sorting the gig and to Petr for putting us on...nice one!!
Another great little venue and enthusiastic crowd...we had a few jumping down the front and Rash Decision had crowd surfers!!
Some really cool people in there including a bloke drinking out of the biggest beer glass I've ever took 2 hands to hold it and it tasted great!!! Wish I'd had my camera.
It was also our last chance to hear the Czech welcome that we'd been hearing all week, "Hey, have this, I grow it in my garden" and bloody nice it was too :)

Jugendhaus, Roßwein, Germany (Oct 28)
Back in Germany for the last night of the tour and what a great gig it was!!!
Massive thanks to Felix (Final Effort) for putting us was great to see him again (it had been 3 years!!) and nice to see that his 2SM t-shirt was still in one piece :)
Great venue, great food, free beer and a crazy crowd made it a perfect end to a cracking tour.
We had a pit, crowd surfing, singalongs and even someone giving Pete a shove (it was like being in The Rolleston!! ha ha) - absolutely loved it!!!
Also a big shout out to the other bands on the bill who played great sets - Your Redemption, Entrapped & Facing The Swarm Thought Facing The Swarm Thought - nice one chaps!!!

So that was basically it...10 days, 10 gigs, 3 countries, 2 bands...1 great crack!!!
Cheers, Merci, Danke and Dekuji everyone and see ya next summer for more of the same!!!

South West Music Awards - Best Punk Band? Maybe...

We have been nominated for 'Best Punk band' at The South West Music Awards 2011 - you can see the nominations HERE.
According to one of the organizers "Nominations were taken from 100 venues around the region plus selected contacts placed in each county" so it's nice to know that some people around the south west think enough of us to put us forward for this...proper job!!
We know we won't win as we're in the same category as The Cut Ups, who are a bit more successful than us but it's nice to be nominated though (first and, more than likely, last time it'll ever happen) so we're definitely not complaining.

The event is being held at The Corn Exchange, Exeter, on Saturday November 12th and is a black tie do. It will be hosted by John Robb.
Other nominees include Muse, The Computers, Joss Stone, Portishead & Coldplay.
It will be pretty interesting if we win because we're playing a gig in Bristol that night so we can't be there..."unfortnately 2 Sick Monkeys can't be with us tonight but they sent us this message"
Do you think we'll need the bleep machine for that video? ha ha

[June '11]Badges....Do you want some?

[February '11]New Interview + New Music Pages + Gigs

Changes to the website are still in my head but they will be here soon...I promise!!

We have just done a new interview with a bloke called Harvey Taylor for his blog Punk Rock '77 Thru Today
You can read it at: Punk Rock '77 Thru Today.
Thanks to Harvey for the interview, we really appreciate it.

New Music Pages...
Due to Myspace being absolutely rubbish now (and getting worse by the minute!!), we will be making sure that this website and our Facebook page are kept as up-to-date as possible.
As a result we've added a Band Page Tab from Rootmusic to our Facebook Page.
When you've got 5 minutes why not check it out?
We also have a page on Soundcloud as well, so if you use that you can also check us out at:

Yep, they're starting to come in now but, as always, they're not coming in quick enough!!!
We currently have gigs lined up for Swindon, Nottingham, London, Ramsbury, Exeter, Burton-On-Trent and several other places but we're always on the lookout for more :)
To check out what we have go to: Gigs and if you'd like us to play in your town, please get in touch at:

[January '11]600 Gigs + New Review + Changes Coming

Happy New Year Folks!!!

On December 23rd 2010 we celebrated our 10th birthday by playing our 600th gig at The Furnace, Swindon.
It was a good night and, considering the terrible weather and the fact that there were 2 or 3 other gigs on in town, there was a pretty good turn out.
Thanks to everyone that came along, nice one, and also thanks to Joy Hanley for the great review of the gig.
You can read it at:

Changes coming....

Nothing too drastic but gradually over the coming weeks the website will be updated.
Myspace has been changed so much that it hardly works properly now, so anything that's on our myspace page (and not currently here) will be added to the site.
So all our Live and CD reviews will be here soon, as well as a load more photos, including live stuff, tour pics and flyers.

Also, I will endeavour to make sure this site is kept a lot more up-to-date....honest!!

[October '10]New Album + Europe

Early September saw us spend 5 days in Pumpkin Records Studios in Manchester recording all the music for the next album (currently titled 'Less Is More' but this could change).
It will feature 12 songs (in no particular order 'Inside/Outside', 'Burn', 'Happy Days', 'Swamp Jacket', 'Standby: To Die', 'It's Killing Me', 'Where's The Progress In That?', 'Why We're Here', 'The Thing', 'Emotion Sickness', 'Slow Down Or Die' and 'Lost My Head'.
We're halfway through the vocals at the moment, we will hopefully finish the rest when we get back from Europe in November. It's all sounding pretty good so far and can't wait to get it finished and released.
Release date is hopefully going to be early December, it will be a joint release between Smegma Records and Pumpkin Records....we will also be joining forces with some other labels across Europe to release a vinyl version too, which will possibly be one of my happiest moments ever!!! More news as and when..etc..

This week we go back out to Europe for what will be our 8th tour out there. We're touring with a band from Cornwall called Rash Decision, top band and really nice people. If you like Municipal Waste you'll love 'em

[October '09]500 GIGS!!!!!

After forming in December 2000 for a one-off gig supporting Darrin Mooney (Primal Scream) at a drum event in Swindon, we have since gone on to play 500 gigs in 13 countries (England, Scotland, Wales, France, Holland, Belgium, Germany, Czech Republic, Bosnia, Serbia, Poland, Lithuania and Latvia).
Some of these gigs have been with the biggest names in Punk Rock: Subhumans (3 times), Anti-Nowhere League (3 times), Discharge, GBH, The Varukers, The Buzzcocks, Total Chaos (twice), The Restarts, Goldblade, 999 (twice), Citizen Fish, Inner Terrestrials (loads!), Targetpoint, Captain Everything, The Vibrators, Sonic Boom Six, The Fight and Lord Bishop Rocks.
Along the way we have managed to cover 79,658 miles, use over 100 sets of bass strings and 40 pairs of drum sticks.
Fred has consumed 500 cups of coffee and Pete has helped himself to around 3,000 pints of cider and lager.
The longest sets we ever played were an hour and a half (in Elstertrebnitz & Nordhausen - both in Germany) and our shortest sets were 8 minutes in Aberdare, South Wales and 10 minutes in Hamburg, Germany.
Some of the strangest things that have happened include a woman ripping our shirts off while we played in Roznow pod Radhostem, Czech Republic and a man getting on stage in Mannheim, Germany and proceeding to play a spade as if it was a guitar...he was then joined by his friend with a rake, who did the same...fantastic!!

During all this we have been able to release 3 EP's and an Album on our own label (Smegma Records) and appear on over a dozen compilations.
We have more releases planned for next year....another EP, our second studio Album and, at long last, a live Album recorded in Lithuania!!
There will also be at least one tour of Europe and we will be heading out to Japan for some gigs either at Easter or in the there's going to be no slowing down and hopefully at some point in the not-too-distant future we will be hitting our 1,000th gig ;)

Thanks to anyone and everyone who has helped us in any way, big or small, over the last 9 know who you are, we know who you are and we appreciate it big time!!!
Cheers x

[August '09]Back home...

We got back from our European Tour with Dead Subverts about 3 weeks ago, we had a bloody great time and can't wait to go out there again (although whether it's the year-long tour we were chatting about Matt, I'm not sure yet ha ha).
Big, big thanks to Kim and her van/bus for getting us everywhere we had to be (and a few places we maybe didn't have to but were fun to see dogs and wart hogs near Russia...ace!!).
Also my boys Matt & Bo (Dead Subverts) and all our tour buddies who came and went (and some came back again) Liv, Phillipa, Gabe, Annie, Pickles, Andrej the snorer and the 3 hitch-hikers we picked up outside Dresden.

We went through (and played in) France, *Belgium*, Holland, Germany, Czech Republic, Poland, Lithuania, Latvia, then Poland, Germany and Holland again....20 ace days, 14 gigs (well, 28 for me) and roughly 4 and a half thousand miles and lots of fun!!!
Best 3 weeks of my life and big thanks to all involved...nice one ;)
*We only stayed in Belgium, we never played as the gig was cancelled...I thought I'd better point that out as there's always one pedantic fucker out there, eh? ha ha ha ha

[May '09]One more push for Rebellion!!!!

If you have 5 minutes spare, can you please go to one (or more!!) of these links and ask for 2 Sick Monkeys to play at Rebellion Festival, Blackpool 2009.
It's the biggest Punk Festival in the world and would be great if we could get on to the bill.
Cheers folks...much appreciated!!

[March '09]New Videos!!!!

Our good mate Billy Beaumont (you can find him HERE or HERE) has put together 2 promo videos for us.
He's made videos for 'Why?' and 'Live It Up (Fuck It Up)'.
We think they're bloody great and really appreciate all the work Billy has done on these for us ;)
Cheers big time mate, you're a legend!!!

[March '09]New Song!!!!

Just a quickie to let you that we've put a new tune on the music player
It's track 2 in the player, It's called 'Sayonara' and it's our little way of saying goodbye to Ayumi, our best mate in London.
She heads back to Japan soon and 2SM will miss seeing her at all the London gigs.

It's a very rough mix and was recorded in just under an hour last Thursday afternoon (March 12th), have a listen and let us know what you think.
Hopefully, we'll get a chance to do a better mix and get it mastered in the next couple of weeks.

In the meantime, hope you like it and why not check out Ayumi's band "Ratbags" - they're ace!!!

[February '09]A load of new reviews!!!

Yep, just like the title suggests, a load of new reviews.
Gigs and ep reviews, all in our blogs at: and bloomin' nice they are too ;)

Big thanks to Fungalpunk Dave, Neil Issuepunk Zine, a chap from Staines called Neil Mach and one folks!!!!!
Check 'em if you've got 5 minutes spare and let us know what ya think.......Cheers

[January '09]Happy New Year!!! Thanks to Fungalpunk, Distorted & (maybe?) Rebellion

I'd like to start by saying a very big thank you to everyone that played a part in making 2008 a bloody fantastic year for us.

Fungalpunk Dave, Pumpkin Records, all our new friends in South East London (our 2nd home!!), Justine (and her family) from Roeselare in Belgium, Eastfield, everyone who booked us, came to the gigs, bought CD's, shirts & badges, Beth @ Punk of all Forms, Dave @ Green Man Music, The CD Mule, Lights Go Out Fanzine, Distorted Magazine...the list could go on forever....thanks to you all, we had a cracking year!!
72 gigs that saw us play in loads of new places to loads of new people, some great festivals here and in Europe and some brilliant all dayers all over the UK. We also passed the 400 gig mark (currently on 425!!) and are marching onwards to 500!!

In October we released our new ep 'Why?' and have already sold out of the first pressing.....the next pressings will be with us this will some XL t-shirts!!!

This year will see us releasing our 2nd studio album (hopefully around August), at least 2 new ep's and, finally, the live album will make it's long-awaited appearance!! It will also be accompanied by a live DVD.

January saw us interviewed in Distorted Magazine, it's a cracking magazine and you can check it out at: The interview was done by Dave Fungalpunk and he also voted us as his band of the year and for someone who sees an awful lot of bands a year it really does mean a lot to be thought of so highly.
Please check out his site it's a great site and the most updated Punk site in the UK.

One last thing, if you have 5 minutes spare, can you please go to one (or more!!) of these links and ask for 2 Sick Monkeys to play at Rebellion Festival, Blackpool 2009.
It's the biggest Punk Festival in the world and would be great if we could get on to the bill.
Thanks loads for reading and if you signed up to the mailing list/became a fan on Facebook/a friend on Myspace/or just checked out the website - it's all very much appreciated!! Take it easy folks

[December '08]FungalPunk loveliness and Dead Subverts

Another busy year draws to an end and another 70+ gigs have been played all over the place.
As always it's been a great laugh and massive thanks to all the bands, promoters and gig-goers that we've played, chatted, drank, smoked and had fun with.

Also, last week, FungalPunk Dave from Stockport gave us a fantastic review for the Why? ep, you can check it out on his site at:
This site is the most updated Punk site in the UK and the man lives and breathes Punk Rock...please check it out, spread the word and help to keep the DIY scene alive.

Dead Subverts. Pete joined up with Matt & Bo from Pumpkin Records and The Something Somethings this summer to play bass for their new band...Dead Subverts.
So far, we have recorded 2 songs via email (You Call This Civilization? & Taking Civil Liberties), had 1 band practice and played 5 gigs!!
The music is kind of Anarcho/Hardcore, it's sounding pretty damn good and there will be split vinyl ep's and an album out in 2009 along with extensive touring across Europe, USA and ASIA.

Check us out at:

[October '08]EP ready and seeing stars

Yep as mentioned to your right the EP will be here from this weekend (18th Oct) - proper job and hope you enjoy it.

Also, we recently had our 400th gig, and due to a cancellation elsewhere, it was at our local venue Riffs Bar, Greatfield.
It was great that a good few people made it along and had some fun with us and big thanks to our mates The Parodies, Faintest Idea and Just Add Monsters for playing.
Yep, fun was had but the most bizarre sight of the night was Justin Hawkins (ex The Darkness) playing darts during our set ;)
I'll have a look around and see if I can find a pic or 2 to put up.

We'll be going back to Germany again in October, dates aren't confirmed yet, but they'll be up on the gigs page as soon as we know.

We also have a gig at the Lokomotief in Venlo, Holland on January 14th, for the Stop The Killing Festival with Lord Bishop, RALD and The Meenies

[Dec '05] Update

The tour went without a hitch, we also met some really good people when we were there, and played in some fantastic venues, so hopefully, we'll be going back for some more next year.

We also met a band called Spit On You (H/C), who were fucking fantastic, so fantastic in fact, that we'll be trying to organise a tour for them next year.

[April '05] Update

Following two successful shows in Germany, we were contacted, first by Lord Bishop, and then by Anja Blume, from Popkilazz Presents about doing a two week tour of Germany in October
After a great deal of thought and stuff, about 1.3 seconds, we decided to bite their hands off, and go
As a result, we've managed to get our arses into gear - not that we hadn't before - and have almost finished mixing the album, we've got badges and new T-shirts on the way, and, done our first ever photo-shoot with Gav
We looked like a right pair of twats, but we got the job done without too many tantrums
Thanks to Anja, Lord Bishop and Gav
