Hailing from Monstrovian royalty, the brothers Von Moenster journey to their current rock caravan has had many twists and turns. During the communist takeover of Monstrovia, the brothers were escorted via the underground clown brigade to France, Sweden and Houston. Their father and mother, the governor and governess of Mostrovia were captured and remained in prison for years. Vladimir and Boris Von Moenster enrolled in prestigious clown colleges earning doctorates and forming their own new world house of clown rebellion, based on the doctrines of Ishkabbible. Testicleese “T-Bone” Von Moenster was ushered via a series of union bosses to Houston, Texas, without contact for years.
The House of Clown Rebellion, through years of diligence, returned to Monstrovia and overturned the Communist occupation, freeing their parents from jail and establishing the basis for the current Monstrovian province and democracy.
Boris and Vladimir went on a world tour playing baccarat and gypsy music while using their clown pedigrees for birthday parties and rodeos. While on the road at a Waco gas station, the brothers Von Moenster spotted their long lost brother Testicleese, buying copious quantities of Slim Jims and browsing the new wave and classic country cassette tapes. It was discovered that he had joined the Branch Davidian compound, was sent out for strawberry Kool-Aid and got lost. He was now known only as T-Bone. He was no longer speaking and has not spoken a word other than indiscernible giggles since.
The brothers established a residency in Denver, Colorado and have become a power rock trio, blending Monstrovian dance hall, with new wave, punk and progressive rock. Their influences range from Englebert Humperdink, the sheep dancers of Kyrghyz, Donna Summer, Wire, Devo, and Abe Vigoda. They are currently putting the finishing touches on their debut full length album and are available for funerals, Bat Mitzvah's and multi-cultural festivals.
