Richard "Cool-as-Hell" Sinclair and Michael "Punslinger" Honsinger have been making spontaneously original music together since soon after they first met in 1985. After a jam or two, the Punslinger lent Richard his Fostex X-15 4-track cassette recorder; Richard impressed him so much by writing the song "Forwards in Time" that the Punman joined forces and the dynamic duo soon morphed into Quantum Mechanix by combining musical gear, ideas, and jokes; and taking cassette 4-tracks to their very limits... and beyond!
The first few years were extremely experimental! Combining Rock, Pop, Electronica and Beyond together, they blazed their own trail through the underground of the Olympia Underground music scene (unseen by K records, Steve Fiske, Bakini Kill, Marcy Playground, the Melvins, Nirvana, Bratmobile and many others). They should have called themselves Secret Identity!
Afraid to share their music with anyone, they languished in obscurity which fueled even more inspired songs of worth!
They have released one album: Quantum Mechanix '88 (11 years after Talking Heads '77) There were only 50 cassettes produced.
They later joined forces with drummer Patrick Padovan (who played at their first 2 jams) and transformed into Art Official... recently they have been known to call themselves Triple Dog Dare.
Anything we can!
