Meskwaki Bingo was made up of Kim Daniels on bass/vocals, Mark Phillips on guitar/vocals and Andy Sinclair on drums. They formed in mid 1997 from the ashes of the Stereotypes and P.M.O.
Andy had just started playing drums and Kim had just started playing bass, so the band was more a learning experience than anything else. Mark and Kim alternated vocals depending mostly on who wrote the lyrics. Some of their songs included "City's Fucked Up", a song Kim wrote about Iowa City and "High on Life", a somewhat straightedge song written by Mark. Another song took two forms in it's existence. Originally called "I Hate the Police and Big 10 Towing", it was about an incident where Mark's parent's mini-van was towed outside Gunnerz after loading equipment in for a show. The song title changed to "I Hate the FCC and Ron Ramage" for a Iowa City Free Radio court battle benefit show at Old Brick church. (The rumor we heard was that the guy from the FCC that contacted ICFR was Ron Ramage. We decided that deserved a song.) They also covered "Subliminal" by Suicidal Tendencies. The only proof they ever existed besides the 2 or 3 shows they played was the United Action for Youth (UAY) compilation where "High on Life" was featured. Someone videotaped their show at 711 Davenport St., and bits of it aired randomly on Public Access TV for many years.
