Labeled as "the Bay Area's monster's of loony tune rock," Eskimo combined elements of punk, funk, metal, free-style improvised jazz, and their own twisted blend of whatever. Eskimo released their debut album, Jack, on Lonpig Records in 1990. On top of adding bits and pieces of circus music, nursery rhymes, and contorted blues, the band's sophomore effort, The Further Adventures of Der Shrimpkin, took the San Francisco scene by surprise in 1995. Continuing on into their spelunking of the musically unexplored, Eskimo broke a few more conventional boundaries with their third album, Some Prefer Cake, in 1999.
