This article is about the band mk Ultra. For the Cold War research project see Project MKULTRA.
mk Ultra was an American alternative band that played between 1994 and 1999. The group formed in the Bay Area in the early nineties, and went on to become a hit in local circles. mk Ultra's career culminated in a national tour in 1999 but came to a rapid end when guitarist John Tyner decided to leave 1. The other members, already working on side projects, did not wish to find a replacement.
Much of mk Ultra's style has been carried on by John Vanderslice and his new band.
