Hello. Welcome. The inaugural post.
I’m excited to begin. I’ve wanted to write a blog for a while now. So, yes! Going to roll with this early energy and see if I can’t get a post up every Sunday/Monday.
The name. Bunker Fuzz. Well, I’d been considering another name but it wasn’t available. That’s how it goes sometimes. I had to choose something else and I was looking for a name that was about my band and could also tangent in any direction. Now, the band I’m in rehearses in a space we call The Bunker, so it seemed like an appropriate blog name for the backstage buzz and all the behind the band stuff that sometimes isn’t even “band” stuff, it’s just people stuff.
The Band. King Fish Crow. I play acoustic guitar and my sister, Liz, and I sing. Corey B. Toth and David Brown sing too. Corey plays keys and synths and David plays electric guitar. The rhythm section is Shane Peckham on bass and Beau Larson on drums. Before Beau and Shane we were much more subdued folk. These days we take elements from a variety of influences.
We recorded The Mercy Tree in Corey’s basement in 2014. But that was before Shane and Beau and even David were in the band. On December 20, 2016 we released Hotdish Army which we recorded at 27 Years Studio in New Ulm, MN. It’s our first ever studio recording and a great representation of what were up to these days. Give them a listen at kingfishcrow.bandcamp.com.
Firsts are fun. Now to go back again and again.
