Absinthe Drinkers

Thujone Max RobertBob

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.
