There are several artists known as Mintaka:

1. Pittsburgh, United States (1996 – 1999, 2005 – present)

To truly understand where the legendary band Mintaka comes from, we must go back to the beginning. In 1996, the three core members were involved in separate projects that would ultimately suck and break up. Hal Pewick was playing the stand-up bass in a outfit called Mothball Dream , Raincoat Meyers was the rhythm guitarist and bassoonist in the / fusion group known as Green Roofing Tiles in the Fuck of Berries, and Heath Peabody was manning the electronic drums in a protest band in Greenland, named Shut Up You Stupid Shit. In mid July of 1996, Heath Peabody had a dream about a cereal box that taught him about Egypt, so he went to Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania for no reason.

Upon his arrival, Peabody ran for six days and stopped in a park by a field. It was in this field that he met Hal Pewick. The two discovered that they had similar interests in music and barber shops, so Hal Pewick invited Heath to his house and introduced him to his good friend Raincoat Meyers. The three ate psilocybin mushrooms and Cookie Crisp, and proceeded to improvise music on instruments that were just sitting there. The three clicked immediately, and the sound was magical.
