Master Musicians Of Bukkake biography
Master Musicians of Bukkake began in the fertile music scene of the Pacific Northwest in 2003. Founded as the result of the album Lesser Angel of Failure by John Schuller, the Master Musicians of Bukkake are a loose-knit posse of Seattle-based musicians performing collective ceremonial music, far removed from category and pushing well beyond the outsider fashions of those willing to settle for less.

The Master Musicians is a motley assemble of 20 blokes who generally perform lysergically poisoned impressions of Southeast Asian ceremonial music. Alan Bishop and Charlie Gocher of ethnodelic greats the Sun City Girls add some drums and Burmese banjo in there.

In 2005 they released "Visible Sign Of the Invisible Order" a recording of improvised ritualistic musical gatherings by the collective. Recorded mostly outside deep in the Cascade Mountains and in large ensemble sessions at Aleph Studios, Visible is best heard in one sitting as it follows a narrative from wearied peace to phantasmagoric horror to entrance to heaven. On this debut release, Schuller is joined by core members Randall Dunn, Brad Mowen, Don McGreevy, James Davis and the mysterious Milk N' Cookies.

Violinist Eyvind Kang also appears on the record and has said of the Master Musicians of Bukkake: It is illegal music..it's criminal what they are doing..you'll see! (Kang is NOT referring to the 9 MM being fired repeatedly on track 13: one of a number of tracks recorded outdoors at undisclosed coastal/forested locales with the balance recorded in the studio).Also noted as performing on various tracks are Alan Bishop/Charlie Gocher (Sun City Girls), Eryn Young, Shahzad Ismaily, Hammy, Branden Harper, Evan Schiller, Paul Moore, Olli Klomp, Javier Gallegos, Andrew McInnis, Benjamin Kennedy, and Luke LaPlante.

Released on the Sun City Girls' label, their second album shares a certain free-for-all sensibility with the work of their mentors, with its rambling psych-folk instrumentals. The Seattle group refers full description to their sound as ceremonial music, and indeed the songs suggest mind-expanding peyote sessions, group visions, and the smell of a ritual fire.

"Totem One" ,a part of a Northwest trilogy, marks an evolution from their first record "Visible Sign Of the Invisible order" (Abduction records 2005). MMOB has now solidified into a 7 piece cosmic psyche force. Like a reverse dark side of the New Age sound, on the Totem series Master Musicians of Bukkake...

Review by SpecialKindOfHell

4 stars Western Horizon

Ethereal, Transformative, meditative. While it sounds like words from the mouth of a Yoga instructor, they are put to much better use in describing the new outing from Seattle's Master Musicians of Bukkake collective. Far West is a landscape that extends very far, and over all sorts of terrain during the two sides of the LP. A somewhat more refined and wise effort from the group, with a gorgeous cover by Simon Fowler that deserves to be seen in the 12" format, it starts out with static-like noise leading into a very Pink Floyd "Welcome To The Machine"-esque pulsating synth sounds with acoustic guitar parts chiming in above. The production is very good, the instruments all being easily heard and picked out in their places. The stereo effect is nice too, many things are panned to the extreme left or right, setting themselves apart amid the sometimes dense layers. This is all based on the mastering for the vinyl edition mind you.

The music is both ancient and futuristic. Sometimes sounding like middle eastern world music and other times the soundtrack to a horror film. Slow building instrumentals like "White Mountain Return" lead to songs with chant-like vocal parts, a little like that of Grizzly Bear, that are just low enough in the mix to blend in ("Gnomi"). There's a steady fuzz of electric guitar laying in the background, with acoustics coming to the forefront for their texture and ringing, natural tones, much like they've done the previous trilogy of albums, but with more finesse this time. "Arche" is more rugged and pounding, invoking the snake charmer in my dreams, while "Cave of Light: The Prima Materia" is more like clouds floating overhead ' in a sort of menacing way. You know that their movement symbolizes the passing of time, and accept this readily, but know that it eventually leads to your own demise.

The last track is almost upbeat by comparison, and makes me think they perhaps didn't want to leave the listener in too dour of a mood ("The Circular Ruins"). It is based on the story of the same name by Jorge Louis Borges from 1940, that fittingly enough, deals with immortality. I have a feeling this Western adventure is only beginning.

Review by Rivertree
Special Collaborator Psych/Space Team & Band Submissions

4 stars This stuff will guide you into a special trance mood - in the case that you really take your time. Ideally you put the headphones on, relax and open up your mind when listening. MASTER MUSICIANS OF BUKKAKE have created a new age drug here, still legal yet, but who knows ... Probably it makes addicted, but I couldn't detect side effects so far. This album sounds as if they've been to the most isolated regions of Indonesia for a year or so and then came back deeply inspired by Gamelan and diverse ritual dances demonstrated by native inhabitants.

This does not mean you should expect tracks reduced on ethno/world impressions alone. This is all decorated with many synthesizer goodies and electric respectively acoustic guitars here and there, which turns it all to a modern outfit. I recommend to listen in one go anyway. They offer a dark mooded, maybe even slightly creepy start with multiple chimes, tribal percussion/drums, subtle spacey synth patterns - a preview of the mantra-like, hypnotic album content which will wrap you up if you're in the right mood - promised.

Don't know what equipment they used in particular. Later they add more hallucinatory coloured oriental impressions, Saz and as for the flute it sounds like Nay or Nagasvaram. Guitar drones are leading over to People Of The Drifting Houses with vocals by Alan Bishop from the 'Sun City Girls', a band which was specialized on gigs with a mystic performance art including weird costumes and make-up in the same way. Schism Prism is a killer track which contains a halting repetitive (Turkish?) dance rhythm. Coming towards the end it all loses structure, glides into a weird cosmic flow and then leads into a fantastic furious finale - wow!

And then the wonderfully charming Cascade Cathedral gives you time to relax afterwards featuring flute and acoustic guitars. It took some time for me to make friends with 'Totem One' - in some way similar to Dragontears as for the trancey behaviour, but surely more out of touch with things. Additionally I would count the Russian band Kalutaliksuak when it comes to a comparison. The ethno flavour they present appears surprisingly authentic. This album deserves some appreciation due to the courageous approach ... so much the more because it's successful in the end.
