Toronto's Greek Buck debut with the opulent and exhilarating Messin' With Greek Buck, a self-produced vinyl-only tour-de-force, the magnitude of which was only hinted at on their cassette and 7" single released under the moniker Barely Pink (Ultra-red of the bizarro world?). The album frappés sampler, synth, live instrumentation and a couple of vocal performances into a melange of pop-based noise. The spectrum of moods range from spooky balladeering to sheets of jaw-clenching racket - with smart, sexy pop songs and groovy ass-shakers falling somewhere in between.

Greek Buck is Don Pyle and Andrew Zealley.

    "A strange journey through Mouse On Mars-style left-field electronica, wet dream pop ('Malibu Peach' sung by Fifth Column's Caroline Azar), a gloomy cover of the Tindersticks' 'Bearsuit' and a climactic tribute to Swans, 'Orgasm Edict' (featuring King Cobb Steelie guitarist Al Okada). Separating these disparate elements are short tracks of drones, 'The New Dusty Box' and silence - a 'cover' of John Lennon and Yoko Ono's 'Two Minutes...'"
    - Chris Twomey, Exclaim!
    "Negativland through rose colored glasses. If 'mice are from Mars,' Greek Buck is from Venus."
    - Terre Thaemlitz
