Day of the Robot

A mostly ambient (if that’s possible) album by hyperkinetic guitarist Buckethead, where his free-association riffing is sliced, diced and re-sequenced into five spacey instrumental tracks. Lots of breaks n’ beats supplied by DJ Ninj, with Laswell presiding over it all. I really enjoy this album more than his straight ahead solo rock albums. It’s more on par with Praxis or Death Cube K, but a little more subdued and trippy and more than a little funky. This is Buckethead’s Bitches Brew. Out of print and rare.

Can electricity be destroyed?



  1. oooooh, nice.

    I’m grabbing this one for sure.

    I found the whole death cube K discog on torrent a few months ago (and of course I grabbed that too!)

    I really want to do a mashup/remix of Buckethead’s Death Cube K and Death Cab for Cutie… because I think “Death Cube for Kutie” makes an excellent mashup name.

  2. Too true!
    Perhaps I’ll put up more Buckethead!

  3. ever since i’ve got buckethead’s “bucketheadland” on avant i was interested in the steps this guy is doing. i’m not so interested in his heavy stuff, but the mixture of his brilliant arpeggio playing and this freaky mutant electronic stuff, plus the funkiness of pals laswell, bootsy and bernie worrell made him a true counterpoint…

    death cube k is super-dark…
