Labeling Ruler Chubby’s freewheeling music having a genre is definitely difficult and perhaps sometimes unfair, but think about avant-garde jazz’s spirit becoming raised inside a jam strap household having a dub soundtrack and you have area of the picture. The “ambient overdrive” group arrived together in NEW YORK and stocks some the city’s “downtown” or “loft” visual, but Ruler Chubby comes off because the freewheeling, fun task of these music artists when considering their “educational” as well as perhaps “hard” backgrounds. Flutist Robert Dick, keyboardist Ed Bialek, bassist Tag Egan, drummer Michael D’Agostino, and multi-instrumentalist Will Ryan experienced gigs with Steve Lacy, John Zorn, Yoko Ono, the Soldier String Quartet, and Pat Metheny within their collective history, but people like UNDER-DEVELOPED, Boz Scaggs, and Skid Row also number within their past. The very first Ruler Chubby appearance could be traced back again to 1999 and Bialek and Ryan’s usage of the name for the recording they do with Mitch Ryder, Monkey Isle. Dick became a member of the duo in 2000 and documenting occurred sporadically through 2002. The group’s 2002 debut, Additional Times, was drawn come up with from these classes and released independently Ruler Chubby label. Egan and D’Agostino had been put into the music group in 2003 and made an appearance on 2004’s Ruler Chubby Is definitely, released by Common Latino.
