Drink Deep


Beginning life as The Thieving Kind, Long Beach, California, indie band Drink Deep featured the songs of Timothy J. Swenson. The Long Beach Press Telegram's veteran music columnist wrote about the Thieving Kind: "Genuine, angst-ridden, a little sloppy, rough-n-tumble and with LOADS of guitar..."

In the aftermath of the break up of Swenson's earlier band, Lunch Box, Swenson had adopted a more personal approach to his music. Eventually the circle of musicians who had contributed in support of his solo efforts evolved into a standing lineup that became The Thieving Kind, which was later renamed as Drink Deep, reflecting a continuing evolution of the band's music from a roots/indie sound at the beginning to a driven, explosively emotional sound.
