Killdozer, natives of Madison, Wisconsin, began
an epic thirteen-year career in the early 1980’s. They
started out as a harsh underground trio of Michael Gerald
(bass / vocals), Bill Hobson ( guitar), and Dan
Hobson (drums) that combined elements of primitive
country blues with distorted Birthday Party style antics.
In 1987, their third full-length Lil Baby Buntin (included
with this Twelve Point Buck CD and produced by Butch
Vig) saw them evolve into a slower more experimental
style of musical drudgery, still always keeping with their
wrong side of town meets Communist Manifesto lyrics.
Although the band would experience their share
of line-up changes in their later years, Twelve Point
Buck remains the pinnacle release from the original trio
