Buckwheat Hendrix


In DC I played bass with Buckwheat Hendrix for a brief spell in the summer of 1992. I didn't get so far as to play live but had a great time. Suicide on vocals, Joe on guitar and Wes on drums making an awesome noise. I was replaced by Mark Nickens as I couldn't commit to the band at the time. I was writing songs and playing guitar in another project called Spiritbomb and even that was short lived as I was making plans to move west to LA spring '93.

I did get to make this flyer for their first DC Space gig. The original color copy inspired by the Jimi Hendrix Experience's 'Axis Bold as Love' cover I believe is still in Suicide's collection. At least I hope it is.
