Bob Bucko Jr.
419582_3193613692932_440090063_n

Bob Bucko Jr. has been described as “all over the free-music map from jazz to drone to noise, and ruling in each area and every adjacent territory he crosses” (Thurston Hunger, KFJC) and has been said to have “successfully thwarted recognizable songform in its entirety” (Rick Ele, KDVS). His second solo album (as BBJr) for Captcha Records, How to F*** All Your Co-workers in One Sitting, was selected by WFMU as a “record of the day” and was featured on Brian Turner’s (WFMU) “Best of 2012” list. He has also released albums through Jeunesse Cosmique and Felt Cat, and operates the Personal Archives label. He is touring throughout September and October in support of his new LP, I Did What I Could With What I Had.
Standing at the intersection of songform, free improvisation, and psychedelia, each BBJr set is an improvised reaction to the room/audience/moment. Drones buzz and tone clusters emerge with a visceral, glacial logic. An adherent of the ecstatic in music, he puts his eyes in the back of his head and lets ‘er rip.

Surrealestate
Surrealestate

Surrealestate is a musical experience that utilizes visual and sonic textures reminiscent of the Old Berlin style of electronic synth music. Surrealestate was formed five years ago with original members Kelly Sheets, Bunny Sheets, and Randy Schwartz. After Randy’s departure, long time friend and associate Jim Curry has contributed his musical creativity to Surrealestate. Surrealestate evolved from Kelly and Bunny’s collective band experiences which included Gravity Hill and Interstellar Electric Gnomes. Jim Curry has been involved in multiple genres and played with bands with tastes ranging from Grateful Dead, Psychodellia, Blues, and Bluegrass. Former band member, Randy Schwartz, contributed his experiences from Tombstone Valentine and added his own unique style through synths, delays, and violin.

Currently Surrealestate enjoys playing Old School Berlin using restored Moog vintage synths and other vintage equipment collected over the years. When required, styles include upbeat techno, psychill, ambient, and trance. Lighting and stage props are occasionally utilized to add to the experience.
