ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
The Absinthe Drinkers spawn catchy, original pop/funk/rock/whatever songs from works of literature ancient and modern. The Drinkers have funkified Baudelaire, punkified Shakespeare, and rockified a number of modern writers. The Drinkers also project original video during live shows, completing the facial orifice stimulating trifecta. They're still working on smellivision.

"...the always surprising avant-rockers The Absinthe Drinkers...No one can be quite sure what to expect from these guys, and that's why we love them! "
- Dan Vidal, Philadelphia Weekly (Feb 27, 2008)

"The Absinthe Drinkers do horror-core right. Rather than amp up the camp of lyrics adapted from Bram Stoker, Ted Hughes and Philly poet CA Conrad's visceral Frank Poems, vocalists Chris McDonough and Robert McNaull play it straight and hard."
- A.D. Amorosi, Philadelphia City Paper (Sep 12, 2007)

"The Absinthe Drinkers put the shimmy into Shakespeare, funkify Byron, and remind us of Hardy’s hipness with their decadent mix of trippy video art...interwoven with canonical and contemporary poetry. I can’t think of a better excuse to toss that Norton Anthology than a Drinkers gig!"
- Jennifer Snead, University of Pennsylvania Kelly Writers House/215Festival

These guys have really hit their stride on this most recent CD. The vocals and playing are supercharged and tight, the poetry memorable, and the tunes catchy. Sure to sell out fast!
