Funky Wrench was formed in 2001 by Lyndon Duffield. It consisted of three members Lyndon, Mel and Martin. After a couple of months playing with a few covers, in came Matt who played guitar and also decided to sing a few notes here and there. Martin left due to work commitments, and in came Jason. Jason and Matt shared the lead vocal, which was usually decided like “Do you wanna’ sing this one?” “Okay then.” John was then asked to join in January 2002, and after a couple of Jamming sessions, agreed!
