BUCK GOOTER documentary

I've had a few run-ins with this band Buck Gooter. For some reason I can't help but think of them as "outsider artists" (which should be taken as a compliment) even if they do know all about noise bands and punk rock. Maybe it's the band name which conjures a hillbilly/redneck vibe, or the weird mix of protest rock with noise & drum machines, or the fact that the band members are a generation apart, or that they live out in rural Virginia. Anyway, even though they have the same internet access we all do, and many of the same sources of inspiration, somehow their interpretation of it comes out very wrong (which is also a compliment). So maybe this will help clarify things: "What Da Hell?" a short Buck Gooter documentary, available in 2 parts on YouTube. I wish this explored the band members' personal lives a little more, which I think would add some insight into where they're coming from, but this still paints an interesting picture. Enjoy! PART 1: PART 2:
