Band Bio

The three Bucksters met accidentally in January 2005 at the unlikely setting of a suburban Buddhist Disco in in North London. Being the only three men in attendance with hair on top of their heads - Andy, Dom and Craig found themselves backed into a corner after the disco turned into a sedate chant-fest.

The three lads quickly discovered that they had more than just follicular abundance in common and joined forces at an East London rehearsal studio a week later. And it was here that the Buck Brothers sound was born.

Within two months of forming, the three lads recorded 'The World According to Buck' EP (released October '05 in North America) which was playlisted on over 400+ college radio stations throughout the United States and Canada with heavy rotation and chart placements aplenty. After tours in Europe & North America the band recorded their debut album, "Me" which was released in October 2007 in the USA (Coach House Records) and the UK (Cargo Records/Fading Ways). To commemorate the release date of the first single from the album "Girls, Skirts, Boots, Bikes' in the UK, Buck Brothers successfully achieved a world record entry for 'highest number of gigs performed in 12 hours' in their native London with 28 shows undertaken on 5th March '07. Off the back of this achievement, the band were invited to support Primal Scream in Moscow at the Krasnaya Presnya Park Festival in July 2007. In October 2007, Buck Brother's debut album entered the CMJ Top 200 national chart in the USA; rare for an indie let alone a first release. They band also reached Number 7 in the national US commercial radio specialty chart in November 2007 (source: Media Guide/KKBB). In March 2008, Buck Brothers undertook a month long tour of the US which took the group from LA to NYC via SXSW in Texas where the band had the honour of playing the infamous Viper Room Swinghouse Studios Party. In August 2008, Buck Brothers were asked by US pop-ska-punk giants Goldfinger to support them on their UK tour. On 20 September, 2008, Buck Brothers became the first band in thirty years to perform at the House of Lords in London.

Cheers!
ThanX for support!

To talk about Rotten Heads is to immerse ourselves in the “Málaga Underground” of the early 90s, collecting all the essence and spirit of the 80s. Historical formation of Iberian Hardcore Punk of the 90s, which germinated in the south of the peninsula, more specifically in Malaga, Spain ...

Ansiedad Cerebral is a punk band with many influences from the 80s, stories that can range from the Último Resorte saga with Álgo Tóxico at the helm, without forgetting Espasmódicos saga, TDeK, and of course, Larsen or HHH.
