|Hubertus Winnubst, left, and Bucks Burnett|
Good ol' Bucks Burnett, ex of 14 Records and The Volares and currently of Eight-Track Museuming
, stopped by this week bearing gifts -- specifically, the double-disc debut Colorbl nd
(and, yes, that is the correct spelling) by his latest rock-and-roll combo, Rachel Bazooka
, which consists of Burnett and the most wonderfully monikerd Hubertus Winnubst. Also guesting on the sprawling record, which Bucks himself says would have made a great single-platter release, are the likes of Salim Nourallah and Paul Averitt, among other notables. He's only been working on it for four years -- hence, this made-in-2007 video for "Chrissie Hynde."
Bucks has given Pete and I the okee-doke to stream a few cuts both here and on DC9 at Night
; I'll go first, since I've known Big Bucks since Pete was in diapers. (I'm so old
.) And, besides, Bucks sent Unfair Park a most wonderful little essay -- which I've not edited, meaning "capitalized or punctuated" -- to accompany the release, which he also likes to say is "Dallas's version of The White Album
." His off-the-cuff liner notes are after the jump, but do watch out for the psychedelics. Here, then, from Disc One, is "Carry Me Down." It's the debut of "The Dallas Sound," so Bucks says.
