Biography

The Bunnydrums began as a collaboration between three members of the Boneheads and one member of the Autistics, both part of Philadelphia’s punk rock scene in the late 1970s. They began on January 20th, 1980 with singer David Goerk, drummer Joe Ankenbrand, bassist Greg Davis, and guitarist Frank Marr. Within the next seven years the Bunnydrums explored many different phases of music resulting in their own unique sound.

They first appeared live in July of 1980 at Philadelphia’s Starlite Ballroom. Ankenbrand had introduced the band to the works of science fiction master Philip K. Dick, which brought on the band’s distinctive and creative sound. This led to the psychedelic/psychotic warehouse playground known as Funk Dungeon. The Funk Dungeon brought on an odd society of fans created by the Bunnydrums forward-and-outward looking scene and its music, which took form after many hours of intense daily jamming. Davis and Ankenbrand formed the band’s foundation as Marr produced individual and untouchable guitar works with a sonic creativeness that met Geork’s visionary lyrics and distinct vocals. They created a sound that could be best described as science-fiction.

By 1981 the Bunnydrums began to expand past Philadelphia and into New York and Washington D.C. Their first vinyl was released by Lee Paris on his Meta Meta label. A year later they self-released their next EP, Feathers Web. This four song EP was considered the favorite amongst the band members and brought on a strong review by Billboard magazine.
