No Monster Club

Indie // Dublin

No Monster Club is the cartoonish art-pop creation of Dublin's Sir Bobby Jukebox - an act that produces records with "the kind of tunefulness that makes a joke of so much contemporary pop music" (The Irish Times), and summery singles that have been compared to "a stripped-down, sugar high Pet Sounds" (NYLON Magazine).

To date, SBJ (often accompanied live & in studio by members of the Popical Island collective) has toured across the world, appeared on Irish & American TV, recorded a session on legendary radio station WFMU, been cited in books by John Hodgman and James Acaster, and shared a stage with acts like The Polyphonic Spree, Wavves, HEALTH, Girls Names, Even As We Speak, Jeffrey Lewis, Abe Vigoda, JEFF The Brotherhood, Juan Wauters, So Cow, Sic Alps & Ariel Pink.
