Skunk Junction was formed in 1969 by founding members Lenny Austin, Henry Burke, Tom Huck, and Tom Scott. Scott and Huck were soon replaced by Buddy Greene and Todd Tennant, who were both from the band, Roc, along with Rick Moon (Stormbringer). Lenny had been in The Mirage with Scott but wanted an outlet for his original material. The group made quite an impression in central Florida but never recorded.

Though the band never released any albums, they soon gathered a faithful following for their unique original music through local concerts and as an opening act for established bands such as Ten Years After, Crow, Sugarloaf, and Country Joe McDonald. Some of the band's more popular songs were "Henry's Space Song", "Music Maker", and "See".

Following the bands breakup in 1973, Austin went on to play in many local bands, including The Mad Beach Band, Tom Gribbin and the Saltwater Band, TC Carr and the Catch, and spent two years touring with Dr. Hook.

Tennant moved to Northern Alabama with his wife and 3 children, and became a professional illustrator.

Buddy Greene eventually became an electrician, based out of Seminole.
