09 – “The Truckers of Husk”

We also went to see our son Ben playing at a bustling venue in Cardiff  known as the Buffalo Bar.  The band is named the “Truckers of Husk”, a quartet consisting of  2 guitarists (one of whom is Ben ) a drummer and a cellist . Their genre of music is categorised as “intricate instrumental  Prog Math Rock”, so I am told !!! 

In March they released a debut EP called “Physical Education” on Kung Fu Records, this was recorded by Ben in a Scout hut in Swansea !!!   We were not sure quite what to expect, however their live performance was astounding,  so full of vitality.

The Truckers Of Husk

In Wales their music has been becoming increasingly popular and they seem to be gathering quite a following in the UK.  They have appeared on BBC Wales, S4C’s Music TV programme Bandit and have also played several sessions for BBC Radio Wales and BBC Radio One. Of late they have played at the Latitude Festival in Suffolk and most recently at the Green Man Festival in the Brecon Beacons were they were well received by the crowds. 

They will soon be performing at the Concrete And Glass Festival in London.
