Bucky The Operators operate the airwaves with retro driven intent showcasing a gravel packed vocal wail skirting the divide between NWOBHM and melodic stoner rawk. The riffs revel with intensity and the groove tangles the listener between bluesy solos and punk rock energy staking claim as a modern day version of Deep Purple. Favorite track: Rolling Hitch.

about

Operators is the band for every situation. Think sweaty club gigs, spontaneous generator sessions in the park, big festival stages or as a spicy afterburner at the cannabis expo - these crazy Berliners are hungry for more!

For more than seven years now, the dudes are sharing the stages. Their distinctive blend of driving drums, rolling bass, feisty guitar and joyful organ is seasoned with versatile vocals and has earned them a deserved place in Berlin's heavy rock scene.

On their third album "Revelers" (release 24.05.2017),
Operators perform as a five-piece and cut straight to the chase – heavy, yet dynamic songs played with big grins and flying hair! Recorded live, produced and mixed by René Hofmann of Wight, it was mastered by Tony Reed of Mos Generator and brought to life with artwork by Johannes Walenta of Stonehenge (www.kopfuber.com).

In the past, they have unleashed their authentic Rock'n'Rollercoaster at gigs with the greats of the scene like Vista Chino, Colour Haze or Greenleaf. Whether it is at the Stoned from the Underground Festival, at the Desertfest Berlin or at oldschool pubs: Operators make the crowd smile and sweat! From psychedeliciously entranced to hipshakin' and headbangin', these guys do what they love: ROCK!

"It is a rollercoaster, complete with ups and downs, climbs and descents that ultimately combine for a well put together if recognizable sound. [...] One of the five reasons I wish I went to Desertfest Berlin 2012." www.theobelisk.net

Track Name: Leveled Reveler
I'm a leveled reveler
slightly out of step with the herd
and I do as I please in my swarm of bees
every buzz I foresee with the power of thee, yeah

clouded judgement
enshrined in my soul
clouded judgement
I'm losing control

I'm a leveled reveler
slightly out of step with the herd
and I seek company, can't stand the real me
all you kitchen drinkers got nothing on me, no

clouded judgement
which side am I on?
no gravity to hold
these lines on the horizon
I resort to turmoil
when the big calm comes close
blend in with you others
when jackdaws approach
Track Name: Pusher
the fader of the deck is broken
so you stick to the one record you love
the one you love
it‘s a long walk uphill to be mastered
and a solar panel amidst the grey
oh can you see it?

keep on pushin‘
take what you got in your own two hands
gotta gotta keep on pushin‘

the fader of the deck is broken
so you stick to the one record you love
the one you love
gotta trace the taste in your mouth
unfiltered karma running south
it's running south
Track Name: Messina
I separate myself from my shadow today
and move into the light
clutch my hands with blackened thumbs
never to turn white

chances are you do respect me
though you're not afraid of me but you'd better be
because I got the closed eye visuals of the 18th century
lord I leave crescent-shaped footprints in your mind

by the time I reach Messina
it's 1908 once again, no

I separate myself from space and time
to become someone else
I’ve cast my spells, I sealed my fate
it never turns out right

by the time I reach Messina
it's 1908 once again, no
1908, that’s way too late now

by the time I reach the other side
I reinvented dynamite
by the time I reach the other side
my third eye is going blind
Track Name: Walkin' on Air
revolution has been televised
now I'm looking for the VHS
revolution has been televised
the missing part was your caress
revolution has been televised
what message is there left to send?
still walkin‘ on air
still walkin‘ on air against better judgement

are we miracle workers and it's love we crave?
some nasty shadows trying to rob your grave?
in the end only you can see
it's you and me and ubiquity

are we the emerald messiah here to sweeten the deal?
twisted illusion and nothing you feel?
in the end only you can see
it's you and me and ubiquity
Track Name: Fuzz Muncher
you're throwing a lifeline, I don't need your savin' touch
prescribing me a cure, doctor thank you very much
I can do it on my own
I don't need your help...no, no

you leave me with this shit
fuzz muncher by design
you take away what's good
what's mine, mine, mine, mine, mine

the high horse you ride on, oh it has been dead for long
now the stench surrounds you as i sing my song
I don’t need your helpin‘
I will do it on my own, yeah

a variety of virtues
none of them you call your own
righteousness, sincerity, integrity
there's a crack in your pretty skull
where the rain comes pouring in
a water hole where the fiendish thoughts arise
Track Name: Rolling Hitch
this little dawn got the best of me
so I lost my old self on the way
after setting foot on holy ground
there's just no way I ever could return
let your electric smile radiate on me
as I'm shedding my skin once more
let others lay their golden eggs
I just ain't got the time for the truth, oh no

it's a rolling hitch I tie to hold on to what is mine
to be severed only by the fateful grip of time

the bloodred moon, the warmest doom
have brought their offerings to me
what’s the sharpest blade in the hand
of a fool, of a fool, of a fool
but after all I don't bear no grudge
because of shallow words that have been said
let others lay their golden eggs
I just ain't got the time for the truth, oh no

you reminded me of someone I knew
the second time around, the second time around

all this time I've been searching
for something I already know,
for something I already have

it’s all becoming clear to me
as I lay supine
serenity’s a state of mind
few reach before they die
let your love flow right through me
as I'm shedding my skin once more
let others lay their golden eggs
I just ain't got the time for the truth, oh no
