No Monster Club is the cartoonish art-pop creation of Dublin's Bobby Aherne - 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).

Over the past few years, Aherne (often accompanied live & in studio by members of the acclaimed Popical Island collective) has toured across the world, appeared on Irish & American TV, recorded a radio session on the legendary WFMU and shared a stage with the likes of The Polyphonic Spree, Wavves, HEALTH, Girls Names, Abe Vigoda, JEFF The Brotherhood, Juan Wauters, So Cow, Sic Alps & Ariel Pink.

No Monster Club records have been released all over the world, by indie labels based in places as far-flung as New York City, Chicago, Arizona, London, Belfast, Dublin, Sydney, Madrid & Rome. These releases have been broadcast by the likes of BBC, RTE, TV3, TG4, Today FM, 98FM, Spin FM, WFMU and TXFM - and the band has attracted support from personalities as diverse as John Hodgman, Jeffrey Lewis and Jedward (and they're just the ones filed under 'J'...!).
