Grunge Pioneers Malfunkshun Reunite
Influential Seattle, Washington rock group MALFUNKSHUN has reformed to honour the death of frontman ANDY WOOD. The late singer's brother and bandmate KEVIN WOOD has found a stash of his sibling's lyrics that he never worked into songs before his death 16 years ago (1990) and now he wants to return to the studio with his bandmates to record new material. The proposed project will result in the release of the group's first full-length album. Despite the fact the group rarely recorded or toured outside its native Washington state, Malfunkshun is often linked with the area's grunge scene. After disbanding Malfunkshun, Wood formed grunge supergroup MOTHER LOVE BONE with PEARL JAM stars STONE GOSSARD and JEFF AMENT. The group's upcoming debut album will feature Malfunkshun favourites like LOVE CHILD and MY LOVE, as well as the new tracks featuring the late Wood's lyrics.
