Eskimo was described as the “Bay Area’s monster’s loony tune rock” and incorporated elements of punk, metal, funk, free-style jazz, punk, metal and their own unique blend of whatever. In 1990, Eskimo’s debut album Jack was released on Lonpig Records. The band’s second album, The Further Adventures of Der Shrimpkin was a surprise hit in San Francisco. It included bits and pieces of circus music and nursery rhymes. Eskimo continued their exploration of the musically unknown with their third album, Some Prefer cake, released in 1999.
