From label Bar/None Records, ~1992: "Drink Me started in 1986. The band was originally conceived as a sort of experimental hard-core duo, inspired by the likes of Flipper and Pere Ubu. Mark sang and played drums and Wynne played electric guitar. After indulging in this type of delivery for a period of time, they figured a more genial approach would better get their craft across. A shift was in order. After hearing The Nairobi Sound, a record of dry guitar bands from Kenya, they went acoustic. For the past couple of years they have been performing as such; shining light on generally untouched subjects like singing clams, Grant's tomb and barnacled whales to the unadulterated delight of New York audiences. Their very theatrical live performances also stress flexibility. They are often times joined by other players on clarinet, fiddle, bass saxophone, banjo, etc. The permutations are endless like a dance hall cut-up session from a couple decades ago."
