Soapstarter 'Naked Wheelz'.

Kris Buckle 'Birds that fly and other things'.



Kris Buckle first began compiling ideas on tape in the bedroom of his East London home some time in the mid 90s. Then finding fulfillment and success in the European charts and playing support shows for Big Beat greats The Prodigy with the much-lauded Sunscreem as their guitarist he kept most of his musical ideas to himself honing his skills as a guitarist and experimenting with D.I.Y recording and home production.

It wasn’t until after a period playing session alongside the much revered and soon-to-be prematurely deceased Irish guitar maestro Eric Roche that some of Kris’s ideas found their way to our ears working with Belgian band Soapstarter, a project which brought together members of Soul Wax, Deus and Vive le Fete. They released their debut album Naked Wheels in 2007 which received 5 star reviews, high rotation on the European airwaves and the interest of Velvet Undergrounds Lou Reed when he requested they send him a copy of the album after a show in Berlin.

After countless live appearances on the European Festival circuit, culminating in playing to 152,000 at Pukkelpop in 2007 Kris returned to the UK to begin recording some of the ideas gathered over the years. Around mid 2008 Kris Buckle spent 6 weeks in the studio and produced his first solo album ‘Birds that fly and other things’ on which he experimented for the first time with string arrangement and playing a number of instruments.
