One of the many members of the mustelid family, the mink is basically a large, semi-aquatic ferret. They are hunted and farmed for their soft, luscious fur. They are also one of the more typically-sexual kinds of furry (oftentimes surpassing even the queen of yiffing, the vixen); this is likely due to the influence of Minerva Mink and the fact that real-life minks often go at it for up to six hours at a time.

A band from Dunedin, New Zealand (and their 1994 self titled album). Those responsible for this low-budget wonder were: Demarnia LLoyd, George D.

One of the annoying things about Mink was that you never knew before hand which subset of musicians and singers would be on stage. The subset of musicians and singers, obviously effected the range of songs they could play. Generally speaking, since I was in love with Demarnia LLoyd's voice it sucked when she wasn't there.

The cloudboy website describes mink as ``now-defunct Dunedin electro-pop con artists.'' Mink evolved into cloudboy.
