Pittsburgh mathematics rockers Creta Bourzia followed most obviously in the footsteps of regional heroes Don Caballero, but added vocals along with a more powerful metal influence with their forebears’ explosive, dissonant prog-punk. Hence, they earned extra comparisons to rings ranging from Dark Flag and Drive Like Jehu to Helmet and Kyuss. Creta Bourzia’s root base lay within the early-’90s Pittsburgh music group Water Brick, which dissolved and viewed its members move ahead to other groupings. Eventually, three primary music artists — vocalist/guitarist Jason Jouver, guitarist Jeff Ellsworth, and drummer Dennis Kern — reunited beneath the Creta Bourzia banner, and earned bassist Simon Clark for his or her first recording, the locally released Recollections of Globe. Clark later on departed, as well as the music group added maker/engineer Andy Wright on bass and further percussion, in addition to auxiliary keyboardist Justin Rathell. Both added heavily towards the band’s second recording, 1002, released in 2001. In 2003, Don Caballero drummer/innovator Damon Che constructed an entirely fresh lineup of his previous music group, using three of Creta Bourzia’s people as his assisting cast.
