KUNT AND THE GANG LONG BIOGRAPHY
Kunt and the Gang is formed by Kunt, following the break up of his previous group, Pubic Cube. They play their first gig at the Castlemayne pub in Basildon. The line-
The band release their debut album
Kunt and the Gang play their first gigs outside of Essex, after the public forward
links to the songs on their MySpace profile and a small following begins to form.
Kunt and the Gang release a live DVD Viva Bas Vegas and a second album I Have Another
Wank And I Have Another Cry. This is the album that spawns Fucksticks, which soon
becomes a firm live favourite. The album is played out live on the Wanking In The
Woods tour, the band’s first foray around the UK which saw them playing in grotty
pubs as far afield as Glasgow, Swansea and Southend.
As their profile grows and more videos are filmed Kunt and the Gang’s YouTube channel becomes ever more popular. Their video for Arranged Bride becomes the first of many videos to be banned by the YouTube censor Nazis.
Kunt and the Gang release their third album One Last Wank And One Last Cry, the final instalment in their wanking and crying trilogy of albums. The release is accompanied later in the year by the Men With Beards (What Are They Hiding?) E.P., the tour for which sees many people grow facial hair or wear false beards along to the shows in celebration. Several usually-

Kunt records a YouTube tribute song in memory of Michael Jackson, which is uploaded the day after the singer’s untimely death and leads to the band receiving death threats from mental American Jacko fans who are unhappy with some of the content, despite it being on the whole factually accurate.
2009 sees Kunt and the Gang’s first appearances at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, teaming up with Laughing Horse comedy for 10 sold out shows (at least, 10 free shows which were full-

Kunt and the Gang finish off the year with a flourish, getting booked to play 3 consecutive weekends on the main stage at The Big Reunion Festival at Butlins in Skegness before being hauled off half way through their first set and banned from returning on the say so of Butlins’ management.
A ‘Greatest Minor Internet Hits’ package Complete Kunt is released, featuring the best loved songs from Kunt and the Gang’s previous four albums and a couple of new tracks. The artwork consists of hundreds of photos sent in by supporters, taken with Kunt. Complete Kunt is also released on DVD bringing together all the band’s videos, many of which had fallen foul of the humourless YouTube censor Nazis.
Kunt and the Gang perform all their ‘Greatest Minor Internet Hits’ in 25 consecutive free late night shows at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival to packed audiences.

To commemorate the wedding of Prince William and Kate Middleton, Kunt and the Gang record a new version of their greatest minor internet hit
On April 28th 2011, the day before the Royal Wedding, despite having well over a million views and several thousand subscribers, Kunt and the Gang’s YouTube account is deleted. This may not be unrelated to the Fucksticks (Royal Wedding Souvenir Version) video, which features various members of the Royal Family with their private parts pixelated, sexually satisfying themselves in time with the music.
Kunt and the Gang play to packed crowds at Rebellion and Download festivals and again
return to the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, where they play 23 free shows and win the
Malcolm Hardee Award (not the one for being funny or any good, the other one). This
is awarded after Kunt and the Gang, rather than print and distribute promotional
flyers, print 5000 stickers of a crudely drawn penis and testicles which, when given
out to the crowd each night appear all over the posters of other comedians. ‘Cockgate’,
as it is known, becomes a big talking point of the festival and several comedians
are known to be very irate about seeing their face with a winky stuck on it.
In October they release the album Hurry Up And Suck Me Off Before I Get Famous, which is quickly hailed as the band’s “least shit album to date”. As Christmas approaches this is followed up by the long overdue festive album Kunt and the Gang Kiss You Under The Camel Toe.
Kunt’s Bangers and Mash tour is their best attended tour to date and coincides with the release of a second compilation of unreleased and rare material, Sloppy Seconds: More Titbits From The Kunt Archives.
Download festival sees a full to capacity Comedy tent with over 3000 metallers joining in shouting ‘Fucksticks’ and ‘Mother’s Cunt’ and at Rebellion festival Kunt again fills the Arena.
Edinburgh Fringe Festival is once again full every night and despite Kunt being assaulted on stage is the best one to date. An extremely badly rehearsed new show Kunt’s On Daytime TV is on the whole very generously received.
A definitive live DVD Proper Kunt is released in October with a 35 date UK tour to coincide.
Kunt and the Gang make their Australian debut with shows at Adelaide Fringe Festival and Melbourne International Comedy Festival.
After nine years, and mainly by old-

In this time Kunt and the Gang have also been banned from Butlins, excommunicated by the Catholic Church in Edinburgh, had their YouTube channel with over a million hits closed down, received death threats from mental Michael Jackson fans over their tribute video, been assaulted on stage, assassinated with piss and given an award for encouraging people to deface pictures of comedians with stickers of a crudely drawn penis and testicles.
Kunt and the Gang are playing soon in a town near you.
