Bob Bucko JR - NITETROTTER Session

Illustration Jorge Tapia / Sound Engineering Randy Carter / Text Mr. Nitetrotter - March 17, 2010

Bob Bucko is an example of classic Iowa folk. His music is original but pays homage to the tradition it comes from. We love the original sense of unforced weirdness.

Randy Carter captured these recordings in Dubque, a Iowa town known for unforced weirdness. He wrote about Bob's three music projects Old Panther, Alma Sub Rosa, The Glimmer Blinken and his busy schedule of solo engagements. Bob also reportedly records feverish noise jams obsessively on his tascam. His behavior and eclectic leanings sounds R. Stevie Moore esque.

We look forward to Bob's set at the upcoming Nitetrotter Fest in East Moline this July. Enjoy this hot session from him and goodnite!

Bob Bucko - "(So) Over The Rainbow" "I Can't Live At Home In This World Anymore" "Native Bodies" and "Amazing Grace/Ghosts"

Recorded at the BASSment in Dubuque Iowa
