Punk rock from Fergus Falls, MN. Ryan and Monty came up with the name while bored in high school. Anatrek = Anarchy + Star Trek, two things we thought were stupid. We combined the two symbols, added "monkey" (not sure why) and called it a band.
In 1993 we actually started playing together as a band (what a concept!), switching guitar players and practice spaces until we hit the final lineup.
- Ryan Anderson (bass, vocals)
- Mark Botschner (bass)
- Monty Botschner (vocals)
- Jay Herman (drums)
- Scott Johnson (guitar)
- Nick Prischmann (guitar)
- Neal Goldenstein (guitar)
- Booked the very first "punk rock" shows at the old Kaddatz Hotel in Fergus Falls.
- Came close to playing Cornstock after submitting a tape that featured dialogue from a Brady Bunch episode and a very crude bootleg of a Steel Pole Bathtub show.
August 1994 - Teen Center, Fergus Falls, MN with Jesus (Minot) and My Dad the Rent-a-cop (FF)
We have videos of the shows at the Kaddatz and the Teen Center and some really bad four-track recordings of a song or two, but that's about it.
