Junkhouse was a noted Canadian alternative rock band of the 1990s.
Formed in 1989 in Hamilton, Ontario, the band consisted of vocalist and guitarist Tom Wilson, guitarist Dan Achen, bassist Russ Wilson and drummer Ray Farrugia.
In Sept. of 1993 they released their official debut, Strays, and promoted the album by touring as an opening act for The Waltons and Soul Asylum. That album was produced by Malcolm Burn, and produced radio hits for the band with "Out of My Head", "Prayin' for the Rain" and "Big Brown Turtle".
In 1997 Colin Cripps joined the band and they released their final album, Fuzz, which was primarily written by Wilson and Cripps, and featured their biggest single, "Shine". Following that album, the band members went their separate ways.
