THIS BASTARD’S NOISE (TBN) RECORD LABEL’S PRESS RELEASE
4 APRIL 2010


BUM N’ DRAZE RECRUITS GUITARIST JET ODRERIR (USA) TO FORM ARGUABLY THE FIRST ROCK’N ROLL SUPERGROUP IN POST-WAR CAMBODIA!

The Finnish-dominated Bum N’ Draze band’s latest long and winding search for a new guitarist is finally over. The longest serving, probably most theatrical original material-playing expat rock band in post-war Cambodia has suffered from changing guitarists during both their 2009 ‘Siberia Teaches’ and 2010 ‘Back To Abnormal’ tours.

“When James Phipek (USA) moved to Germany and his successor G-String Gildas (France) is now too busy with his other bands in Cambodia, a sustainable solution had to be found and fast”, tells Twilight Dzouns, BnD’s drummer, singer and lyricist, and continues that “I had seen Jet Odrerir play many times during past years on Phnom Penh stages with for example Betty Ford and The GT Falcons, and after a vital rock’n roll conversation on one fateful night at the Cantina’s bar counter I decided to invite him to a BnD audition. I thought, this tattooed dude from the hometown of Hüsker Dü, Minneapolis, who can debate with me forever about Jethro Tull’s best albums, cannot be thoroughly bad, heh… he is a brilliant solo guitarist and especially looks good on stage, that is what really counts in rock’n roll”!

BnD’s bassist and composer P. Sonic is equally happy about Jet’s entrance to the band. “Jet seems to be weird enough to fit into our band. Many have tried but most have failed in the end. You have to come from the shadows and have also something else than Siem Reap’s half-marathon behind”, smiles P. Sonic and orders another double Russian Standard vodka with Perrier and lime on TBN’s bill.

Supergroup or not, fans and supporters will judge soon, Jet will make his live debuts with Bum N’ Draze in April at Sharky and in May at Cantina in Phnom Penh, so stay tuned for the exact 2010 ‘Back To Abnormal’ tour dates and follow www.myspace.com/bumndraze for further developments!

Rock on,
TBN – The Real and Independent Rock’n Roll Record Label
