Reubens Accomplice Biography
Strip mall chintz. Cinder block suburbs. Depressing Dairy Queens. Hirsute hesher metal. For lifelong desert dwellers and North Phoenix, Arizona natives Jeff Bufano and Chris Corak this deadening litany could've doubled as a description of their adolescent lives. Before long the two schoolyard chums and burgeoning musical misfits began pining for something more than an existence predicated on old Slayer riffs and tweaker- trailer culture. And so, Reubens Accomplice was born.
The band's peculiar journey- a labyrinthine saga that's taken them from high school talent shows to amphitheatre stages- has yielded a spectacular bounty in the sun struck pop perfection of their latest album, the Jim Adkins (Jimmy Eat World) produced THE BULL THE BALLOON AND THE FAMILY.
The much-beloved (though admittedly idiosyncratic) Reubens Accomplice has made a name for itself in recent years touring with the likes of Jimmy Eat World, Promise Ring, The Weakerthans and No Knife, and building a dedicated fan base throughout the U.S. The group's 2001 full-length debut I Blame The Scenery (released on Los Angeles' Better Looking Records) helped establish them as critical and cult faves.
Reubens Accomplice is the flagship act on the newly launched Western Tread Recordings. The imprint is an Arizona-based venture between Jim Adkins and Phoenix music impresario Charles Levy. Western Tread has already released titles from Jimmy Eat World (a vinyl reissue of 2001's multi-platinum self-titled album and a vinyl version of the bands latest, "Futures") and the debut EP from Atlantic recording artists The Format.
