Remember the allusion to a new Brassland band posted earlier this week? Well, the time has come to let you in on the scoop: Brassland has signed Brooklyn-based two-piece Buke and Gass to its roster. Known for playing a wide variety of self-modified instruments (among their more prominent inventions are the "buke," a baritone ukelele, and the "gass," a guitar/bass hybrid), the band is currently finishing its Brassland debut, which will come out later this year. Look for more details to come.
In the meantime, you can catch the band this weekend in Knoxville, TN, where they will perform with The Ex at the Big Ears Festival on Friday, March 26th. After their set, the band will set up a CD printing station where the audience can print their own discs with Buke and Gass materials. DIY!
