Monotremata comprises the sound and chaos of one Mr. Chris Coccia. It began in Ventura, CA in 2004 as a project called Taishakuten, but after lineup changes, rearrangements, new sounds, etc., it was decided the machine had become a new beast. In december of 2005 Taishakuten was laid to rest and Monotremata was christened.
Originally working with Casey Shropshire (Ex-Uphill Battle, Bass/Vocals) and an Alesis SR-16, long-time friend Martin Ayala (Psycho Cafe/Thornlord) jumped on shortly after to take up the drums. Initially just the 'live' drummer, things moved quickly and real percussion was soon part of the rotation. The cast of supporting characters comes and goes, with Chris being the mainstay and brains behind the operation.
