Bucketrider – “L’evenements ” – [Dr Jim’s Records]

Rococo   7/5/2005   A Library, CD

Inspired by the revolutionary events in Paris circa May-June 1968, L?’V’NEMENTS is the fourth full-length release from Australia’s Bucketrider. And as you might expect from that inspiration, there’s a riot goin’ on! The album’s central suite of 12 ‘events? alternates between unruly instrumental chaos and near-silence for most of its running time. Bookending this 12-step program are two opening and two closing tracks that I think are considerably more successful at integrating the rock and free improv influences motivating the band. Guitars, bass, drums, sax, trombone, synth, oboe, piccolo and even a toy piano all contribute to the energetic and muscular sound of this instrumental ensemble.
