UNCLEFUCKER IS HOTTER THAN THE BREATH OF A FIRE SPITTING WILD BOAR!!!!!
This is not your grandfather's bluegrass band, or your daddy's washed up punk group. With their mix of hay bail hardcore and hillbilly metal venom, the band has redefined a wildly popular back country music style for a new generation of rockers and the sinfully hip.
The group went far beyond simply updating a sound. UncleFucker created an entirely new genre, "Grasscore," which one critic called "a cross between a sunrise and a monster truck." Taking beloved classic bluegrass tunes such as "Rolling in my Sweet Baby's Arms" and "Rockytop" and ripping them a new one, UncleFucker has stormed the bluegrass community, dismantling it of unneeded decency and adding the raw elements found in New York City's early days of hardcore.
UncleFucker is, proudly and without rival, the only bluegrass/thrash metal band in town (any town), and, along with their sexy stage dancers, the Fuckerettes, they bring more excitement and heavy petting to the stage than a thousand bands before them. Crowds have gathered in disbelief at New York City rock clubs, underground parties and music festivals as they've been introduced to a musical style never heard before with visual stimulation to match.
The band has brought their grasscore extravaganza to the masses through a series of wild subcultural events that meld music, performance art, burlesque and rock theatrics, including Brooklyn's infamous Madagascar Institute parties (which UncleFucker performs at regularly), the recent TheatroClash festival in Williamsburg (hosted by renowned performer Murray Hill ), and other underground, fringe, wicked and fleshy fiascoes that are putting the raucous back in rock. These speakeasy-style freak fests are where UncleFucker shines - at outlaw parties, backyard garages, and once abandoned warehouse spaces where everything goes and the offbeat and wicked reign supreme.
UncleFucker is led by "Slick Dick" Grizzly Izzy Zaidman, a former hardcore guitarist who toured with several rock groups before setting out to evangelize the merits of debauchery under the guise of good ole country music. The band also features the hedonistic speed fiddling of Katy "Texas Slime" Cox, the gargantuan bass playing of Snickers Fucken (real name!) Skwire, and the drumming of vagabond streetfighter, Freeball.
While critics have pegged UncleFucker's music as raunchy, rockin' and rebellious, it's their live show, which features up to six sexy dancers and frequent guest performers, that sets the band apart from any rock show in town. The Fuckerettes are UncleFucker's very own gang of seething stage dancers, adding to the group's glamour and mystique. Led by star choreographer Vandana, who also choreographs and dances with the art rockstars Fischerspooner, the Fuckerettes are a highly skilled dance troupe who add to the visual excitement of the group and often perform within NYC's burgeoning cabaret scene as their own entity as well. The Fuckerettes danced at the recent New York Burlesque Festival along with The Pontani Sisters, Lady Ace and The Wau Wau Sisters, and have drawn their very own following apart from their work with UF - together UncleFucker and the Fuckerettes are raising the bar on New York City's nightlife performance scene.
UncleFucker's slew of burning bluegrass musicians, kicking up dust with electric fiddles, banjos, dobros and guest vocalists, create a tornado of sound that's backed up by the Fuckerettes' shamanistic hillbilly stomp, bringing crowds into frenzies unheard of at any honky tonk.
Based in Brooklyn, NYC, where rock still breeds, UncleFucker is taking its muck-raking music and theatrical madness across the nation. "Usurping the Tradition" is UF's soon to be released 13-song CD that brings bluegrass classics on a sick and grizzly hayride while the band prepares to rock a new generation of party starved freaks beyond their senses. It's that high lonesome sound piss drunk on metal madness that keeps the world guessing just what UncleFucker will do next. Stay tuned for the 'Fucker as it rumbles through your town ...
In support of USURPING THE TRADITION,UncleFucker will begin a six month tour with Mindless Self Indulgence beginning next month. The band will travel to Los Angeles, Chicago, New Orleans, and 34 other cities and will play Houston and Atlanta, where the band has a dedicated following from past tours and music festivals.
