I challenge you to find a scarier looking person than Joe Buck who's not playing black metal. With hollow eyes, often augmented by scary contacts, Buck cuts an awkward figure — pale skin, sharp features, sharp teeth, a rooster plume of a Mohawk — that's not far from an emaciated Jon Voigt on meth. Former Legendary Shackshaker and current member of Assjack and Hank Williams III back-up band, Buck doesn't try to curb his aura. He goes by the full name Joe Buck Yourself, and he sings, nay, hollers of devils in him, being strung out on “hillbilly junk” and being an evil “motherf**cker.” Look for him to alternate between guitar and bass. Two Fayetteville-based groups on Robot Lake Records open: The aggressive four-piece the Counterlife and minimalist experimental act the Real Tigers.
