Bushwac - The Road That White Men Tread
Bushwac is the present manifestation of 15 year collaboration between Paed Conca and Steve Buchanan. In August 2007, they were able to record a long overdue cd, “The Road That White Men Tread“.
An intriguing mix of breakbeat, microtonal reeds and expressive text. The music of the cd delivers a clear message, both, aesthetically and politically. As well the music is quite representative of the myriad influences which have inspired them. An important component is the use of dance as an integral part of the groups concept and sound. This happens via the dance instrument 2ND LINE, created by Steve Buchanan. Another important part of the groups music is the strong wish to avoid the cliche statis and ghettoizing tendency of much contemporary and improvised music. The cd is a fine use of many diverse elements, influences and genres which form an intelligent and cohesive whole.
