The Larkin brothers Del and Aya had a background in ska bands. Guitarist Warwick Scott was influenced by funk and rock. The Sutherland brothers rhythm team played rock and jazz. Common influences for all musicians were reggae, 1970s funk (James Brown, Funkadelic) and hip hop. They joined together to become Skunk, and later, Skunkhour, named after the poem by Robert Lowell.

Skunkhour were sometimes described as “the white man’s funk band”, and their singles were on regular rotation on Australian radio station Triple J. Apart from that, however, the public didn’t get behind their unique brand of funk.
Skunkhour called it a day in 2002 and thanked thousands of loyal fans in a farewell tour.
