Album Review

BBJr – “How to Fuck All Your Co-workers In One Sitting” – [Captcha Records]

Thurston Hunger   8/1/2012   A Library, Cassette

So this Iowan guitarist+ floats like a butterfly (Ignatz
style power drift on the lead off track) and can sting like
a bee (Sonny Sharrock moves I shit you not on the closer
while nodding towards Albert Ayler). You want screamo
flail-out that ends up in soothing sax balm. Blammo,
track #3. Harmonic pinching banjoesque country? Try
“I Can’t Live At Home In This World Anymore.” How about
one track that goes from Guided By Voices rattle ballad
right into tweaked out electronic helicopter popcorn
funk with the television on? That would be “Love Psalm/
Luv Psalm.” Definitely feel love/luv on this whole release
KFJC loves its weirdos, especially the chameleons, and
this release from Bob Bucko Jr nails the home-spun
heart-felt bizarro as well as anything we’ve added this
year. He also goes by the name Nitetrotter as he announces
on some of the latter live tracks here. Captcha has done
us all a kind treat (they also mention a nasty accident
in which Bob apparently severed tendons in his hand,
no doubt music will overcome that, but sure hope he gets
full strength back, as he knows how to use it!)????
