John formed Powder Monkeys with Tim Hemensley in 1991. Both were former members of Bored!.

Powder Monkeys released three studio albums ‘Smashed on a Knee’ (1994), ‘Time Woulds all Heels (1996) and ‘Lost City Blues’ (2000). They split in 2002.

Tim died in 2003 at age 31. John had a heart attack in 2001 which left him with impaired motor skills. The original members of Powder Monkeys, guitarist John Nolan and drummer Timmy-Jack Ray reunited for the first time since Tim’s death to perform at the Hemensley Cup with special guests including Adalita.

John Nolan was a member of Bored!, The Powder Monkeys, Spencer P Jones and The Escape Committee and The Powerline Sneakers.
