Sharing members across King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard, Crepes, ORB and Baked Beans, ‘Uncle Murl’ as they’ve been affectionately dubbed, set themselves apart for their signature blend of old-world rhythm, blues and psychedelia, bolstered by the unmistakable vocals and harmonica breakdowns of Kenny-Smith.

Having sold out headline tours all across the USA, UK, Europe and Australia. Uncle have also shared stages in support of The Pixies, Mac DeMarco, Ty Segall, Stephen Malkmus and Gary Clarke Jr., and have made appearances at festivals such as Gizzfest, Splendour In The Grass, Austin Psych Fest, Meredith Music Festival and Boogie.’
