Bio

The Murks are an indie rock band from Numurkah. It so happened that in May 2011, Kim, Squish and Jamie were performing in a production of Godspell. Incidently, Tim was operating the sound gear for that production. As it turned out, Tim and Kim had been in a covers band that had disbanded earlier in the year. They wanted to keep playing music together but needed a bass player and a drummer. Coincidently, Tim's friend Jamie was a talented musician and songwriter who played bass. Parallel to this, Kim knew Squish could play many instruments including drums. In fact, they had played together in an all-girl band called "The Conniptions" some years before. In an unrelated incident Jamie once slept on Squish's couch sometime in 2008 after playing a game of miniature golf in her loungeroom. In other words, Kim, Tim, Squish and Jamie all kind of knew each other and decided to form a band. They released their debut EP "Plastic Polly" on the 25th of February 2012 at The Numurkah Hotel. Currently The Murks are playing shows and writing their debut album.
