Buckethead – “Kfc Skin Piles ” – [Gonervill]

Nine eccentric tracks from The Bucketed One. This his been described as a battle breaks record, and yes it does seem like it would be good for DJ cut-ups with its insistent beats, abrupt changes, and voice snippets. It’s crazy stuff: Track 1 is unpleasant spoken word, chainsaw noises/screaming, then 4 minutes of beatbox. Track 2 starts with the Yo Ho Ho pirate theme on guitar, then moves into a deep Laswell-like throb. Track 5 features mole facts, then a percolating groove. Track 7 has big dark synths fleshing out a minimal beat. Overall, there’s relatively little of the space-age shred guitar he’s known for. Side A ends with a shrieking locked groove. Side B ends with what sounds like a locked groove, but it isn’t. A funny guy, this Buckethead.
