about

Skullfinger, the veritable supergroup comprised of "Lucky" Luke Skullfinger and his imaginary band of misfits, dish out an epic tour-de-force with their debut full-length "Turn Down The Quiet". Genre-mashing is no big whoop to Lucky Luke, whose musical stomping ground spans the gamut from the gutter to the heavens. "Anything less would be yawnsville," he asserts. "Basically, I wanted to create the ultimate rock album, something that I personally could listen to on repeat all week long. You know, the right balance of variety versus consistency." If you think it's reasonable for Pink Floyd, Bob Marley, The Beatles, Devin Townsend, Megadeth, Frank Zappa, Steve Vai, Lemmy Kilmister, Skinny Puppy, Led Zeppelin, The Black Keys, David Bowie, Leonard Cohen, Tom Waits, and Radiohead to party together all on the same stage, then you probably wouldn't kick Skullfinger out of bed for getting crumbs in the sheets. Get your fingers dirty!

Produced by the prolific Sean Luciw (Electric Humour, Drums of Drone, Lex Plexus), "Turn Down The Quiet" features a heavily-layered "wall of sound" that is simultaneously rooted in every rock-and-roll decade. Fans of prog-rock will appreciate the abundance of odd-time signatures, guitar solos and aesthetic twists and turns, while the lyrical content ranges from visually abstract to personal and political. Skullfinger has achieved a deeply colourful sound for their debut album.
