Imagine Jonathan Richman, early Elvis Costello, Thee Headcoats mixed with Ren and stimpy and you''re getting close. Bucky are a 2 piece band with ace tunes and lots and lots of love from the Bath/ Bristol fanzine scene. The drummer Joff has one hand who plays unlike Def Leppards drummer- he does it the hard way with one stick and his stump. singer and guitarist Simon plays a spasmodic Silvertone guitar which would make Billy Childish proud.

The tunes are Richmond-esque with daft lyrics that make you laugh "I''m a pony, but soon i''ll be a horse'' with a shambolic yet harmonic live show.

If you haven''t heard or seen them check out the website please. Let me know what you think? good? bad? have you seen them- I don''t think they''ve ever played in London- can we start a campaign to bring them round the country.

Check out the video on the site to see live crazyness and one handed drumming for real...

It''s Ritalin all round as attention-deficit-disorder duo Bucky begin to start getting around to commencing. Their clowning, distracted asides and high-jink japery draws the crowd closer and they have warmth in spades. They are the unholy love child of Sparks, They Might Be Giants and Momus, with songs about teenage hormonal misery, moody stropping and the vaingloriously misunderstood. Rocket-speed pocket opera jammed into square peg, round hole two-minute miniatures. -Venue
BUCKY - Adorably manic country-rock two piece with awesome tunes and hilarious lyrics. Probably the only band in Bristol that is loved by everyone in town. -Venue

The most loved, sharp-witted, danceable, fun, energetic and hilariously demented band in Bristol. Far from being a novelty act, Joff (drumming, yelps) and Simon (guitar, handsome voice) have a knowledge and enthusiasm for music that takes in gospel, country, Motown, doo wop and bubblegum pop, but they come across like if punk rock happened in the fifties, like a hardcore buddy holly... and they are as eclectic in their songwriting, with subjects concerning everything from boy-trouble to libraries to dogs to Mary Wilson.
You have to try really hard not to love this band. they''ve made devoted fans of everyone from The Seconds, the Rogers Sisters, erase errata and Kula Shaker ! and soon you!

They’re a 2-man guitar and drums garage rock revelation. If the only album Jonathan Richman ever owned was by the Sonics, you’d be halfway to defining their sound. Thay boast a set of melody-charged breakneck-speed songs that tackle some very strange subject matter (horses, The Beatles, Mary Wilson’s demise after falling out with Diana Ross) and salute the greats of U.S. garage punk and country (Standells, Lovin’ Spoonful, Sonics, Creedence). They rock with raw, feedbacking joy and more than a dash of eccentricity.
‘Sheer, unadulterated pleasure’ -Venue

Bucky are fantastic. It’s a kind of free-fall no brakes punk-skiffle assault course of ramshackle melodies frankly bursting into your face. There are two of them but that is more than enough… a drumming, guitaring, double voxed splurt of entertainment to be utterly recommended. –ARTROCKER

Bucky are great and suck the audience into their one-off world with a kinda sound-tracked love-in. Bucky should be a religion. –ARTROCKER

Bucky is a band of no future, no past, of the moment – and what a brilliant moment! The brightest light of the night, they are some kind of punk rock equivalent to Lenny Bruce (if you don’t know, look him up; he’s the father of every thing). A blitz of 2-minute songs, inspired lunacy, affection and intelligence, commentary without judgement, they are cool beyond cool and you can’t not love ‘em. We love you Bucky! - MOLES CLUB

Bucky have graced the Purr stage 8 times (or was that 9) and somehow this was the first time for me! 2 blokes, a drummer with one hand (the handless arm a drumstick!!) and a singer with two hands and a guitar! Cavorting around like loose cannons, they played fantastic short sharp shots of wide-eyed-pop-piss-takes, Radiohead and Travis bearing the brunt. Where these guys blast the fun into ‘serious’, they do it such a way that it’s less an insult and more a flipside reaction. Bucky are radicals true to a pure punk ethos, reactionary, funny, political and well aware of the media portholes that try to make sense of the ever- changing seas of popular music.
Their sense of humour is chemical and utterly shambolic with tales of how they love the library (and librarians!), and in love with the unsung heroines that aren’t Diana Ross in the Supremes! Genius! - MOLES CLUB REVIEW
Another band that should be massive. Silly, funny and charming, but still able to rock out with the best of them. More entertaining than electrocuting a bath full of kittens. Rockin’ good fun. -Miles The Munter

Two things must be explained about Bucky, of whom there are two, Joff and Simon, old school pals. First, they are not simply a two-piece playing the finest skiffle pop delights in the West Country (if not the World); no, Bucky are also an hilariously endearing comedy double act that would make Reeves & Mortimer consider enrolling on a team-building course. Second, Joff does not use a bass drum. This would normally be strange enough in itself, except Joff only has one hand. You’d think a drummer only able to use one stick would make as much use of his feet as possible, but instead Joff bangs out his bass beat on a floor tom with his stump as his drum kit runs away from him. This shouldn’t be funny but it really, really is.
These two things are important because it means Bucky are 4 songs into their set before you actually notice- due to being so distracted by Joff’s brilliant and original drum skills, their endearing enthusiasm, their heart warming rapport and side splitting ad-libs. By the time you’ve observed, considered and made aesthetic judgements about their fast-paced, double vocal, stop start style, they’ve so thoroughly won you over that it is impossible not to love them so much you want to take them home and put them on your mantelpiece.
There they could stay, bopping along singing about dogs (‘Hi-Fido’, ‘The Greasy One’), Libraries (‘I Love the Library’), ‘The Beatles’, teenagers, bicycles and best of all … Ponies. “I’m a pony/soon I will be a horse” rings out their final song, which the whole of Moles sings along with them in glorious, grinning abandon, before they are dragged back out for an encore. – https://www.tradebit.com

Bucky are the class clowns you’d love to swap for your irritating older brother and proudly introduce to all your friends and family. Self-deprecating and hilarious, they hide masterfully brilliant and wildly imaginative lyrics under a carefree careering set of 2-chord skiffle pop anthems. ‘Hi-Fido’ is a song with 2 chords (C&F) as Simon handily demonstrates. The barking is inspired. However, we are also treated to the genius that is ‘I Am Dark’ (“I am serious/always mysterious/can I read you my thesis”). I’m laughing too hard to make notes but luckily I got an advance copy of the forthcoming album so I know all the lyrics off by heart. Which is lucky as you are far too distracted by the interplay and banter between madcap Joff and faux-serious Simon. If you haven’t seen Bucky live then there is a big hole in your life. –https://www.tradebit.com
