The phrase “Undead Monkey” got stuck in Gymshoes’ head. Or maybe stuck to the sole of her Shoes. She got the blog name on impulse with the idea of Undead Monkey being a band name for projects she collaborates on with other people since Gymshoes music is solo (albeit with a guest vocalist occasionally). Then she started recruiting Monkeys for the Undead band. A number of musicians came and went, (Ronnie Marler, Karl Geisler, Rick Ellis, George Farrow, Pete Ward), though most consistently the band included Gymshoes and Hockinfinger.
Gymshoes is best known for being a digital girl, with quite a few songs on her Gymshoes site. Her Undead songs are more like what she used to write before being seduced by the dark side of digital media. In fact, some of her Undead songs are songs she wrote long ago. She plays rhythm guitar and percussion, messes around with samples, and does field recording. She also writes books under the name Ainy Rainwater. Her books are now available as ebooks (in a number of formats) from most online ebookstores. (Barnes & Noble, Amazon, Apple, Sony, Kobo, Smashwords, et al.)
