PRIMAL INDUSTRIAL BLUES: Buck Gooter Breaks all the Rules

Download MP3 

The Virginia-based band Buck Gooter is a duo comprised of a 33 year old (Billy Brett) and a 67 year old (Terry Turtle). On stage they are known for punishing shows where they bang chains around, break things and yell. Their music is hard to categorize – its influences include everything from Nine Inch Nails to Mississippi Blues. We were lucky enough to sit down with them at the LINE Austin during SXSW 2019 to hear more about their formation and idiosyncratic dynamic.
