Pete Skermetta

Abandoned as a baby, Pete was adopted and raised by Trappist monks. He spent his formative years entertaining the monks by playing the lute while standing on his head. He may have never been exposed to rock and roll if it weren’t for some botched dental work that resulted in him receiving radio signals in his head. At the age of 14 he left the monastery and joined the circus where he became an accomplished juggling trapeze artist. He eventually left the circus and settled in Austin where he was discovered and recruited by the Clutch Kings. He is also known to occasionally build a guitar. Check out when you have a chance.
