While Buccinator under no circumstances became anything such as a known act, the backdrop of its various individuals makes it worth note to enthusiasts of L.A. artwork/punk rock from the ’90s. Shaped by vocalist/guitarist John Napier, having lately emerged through the collapse of Ethyl Meatplow, Buccinator roped in such people as bassist Dave Gomez from Beck’s support group and drummer Amery Smith through the Beastie Guys’ touring clothing. Add Evan Mack to become listed on Napier on electric guitar and various noisy vocals and the effect was an amusing trawl through aggressively loud craziness, as noted in the band’s one record, THE FANTASTIC Painter Rafael. Napier himself began the Basura! label release a Great Painter on, and a variety of various other intriguing initiatives from famous brands Congo Norvell and Dairy Cult. For all those questioning — the band’s name itself identifies the muscle developing the cheek wall structure in humans.
