New Buckethead Pikes Discussion

It ships in January, so it could be from the shows next month or in October..though if I recall correctly, some of the shows during the last tour were being recorded.

 

Given that he's touring with a band, I'm guessing his live album will have performances from his upcoming shows, and not the 2016 ones...

I'm looking forward to hearing that record regardless of when it was recorded, tho.

 

 

also, Sparks In The Dark is available as a signed drawing vinyl edition:

I'm liking the sound of this one.  I wonder if he will play any Pikes while on tour.  

I hope that he will play Pearsons Square (#31) Roller Coaster Track Repair (#47), Final Bend of the Labyrinth (#73), Forest of Bamboo (#106), The Five Blocks (#237) and Far (#266)

I've wanted him to start playing Hold Me Forever, at least a condensed version as an encore track to blow people away.  Hard to say if I'd drop Soothsayer in favor of it though..

Hold Me Forever is one of my favorites, too.  I'm going to have to re-listen to the ones @Sosso listed, but I bet if you asked 10 people, you'd get 10 different lists of requests!

I don't even really care what he plays, he's got enough great music to pick from that I could write 10 different setlists and be equally happy with each of them. Hold Me Forever would be epic, though. Even a condensed version....

 

Who else has got their records? I got Elephant Mans Alarm Clock and Crime Slunk Scene (signed edition, #105) the other day, playing CSC now and it's awesome! :headbang:

Can't wait for my copy of Shadows Between The Sky to arrive!

Great Pike! I really like his ambient stuff.

As long as there isn't another 31 day Halloween series :P that got a bit overkill

Otherwise I agree, his Death Cube K side can be very interesting

I thought that he would release 364 other albums after the relase of 365 Days Til Halloween: Smash ^^

Is it true that the album Monolith only works if you play all five discs at the same time?

lol I want to believe he pushed out Smash to take the piss out of everyone loudly complaining when the realization came that he was doing an ambient pike a day for a month straight

A definite answer was never given on how Monolith is supposed to be enjoyed, Travis Dickerson declined giving a straight answer on the topic; it definitely makes for a good Halloween soundtrack though when it's all mixed together

It sounds much better when the different parts are merged into one song.

It gets so annoying ,tiring,boring that he releases too much stuff,even if there are some good instrumentals,you lose control trying to find in which album you hear what.

A wasted talent under a hiding face and uknown identity.

You don't have to like every album he releases.

He does offer samples of each album on bandcamp, some you can stream the entire pike for free :P he's just being prolific (and profit-conscious) in his work, it's why I'm pumped for the new Bucketheadland release which will hopefully have a lot of polish

I enjoy every Pike he puts out. Each release is unique and different.

He should start a line up,i can't stand watching a dude with playback parts or autotune drums,bass.

https://www.jambase.com/article/buckethead-announces-2017-fall-tour 

According to this article, "He will be joined on this run by former Primus drummer Brian “Brain” Mantia and longtime bassist Dan Monti."  Wish granted!
