Music

Taterbug

Avant/Experimental

Iowa City IA

3717
Taterbug is Charles Free, "singin son of the earth," as well as a "brotherless child" with only loose connections to the Night People label. He sings and manipulates tapes that he's recorded, and some he's found, "sometimes scotchtape vocal dubs for that boy choir vibe," and if you've got him live, it's "a lot more torched." Taterbugs is an Iowa kid, so it was probably inevitable that he'd eventually run into Shawn Reed and Night People, or as Free puts it, it's "easy to find a creep in the corn." He also offered up an impressive release history, with a mountain of self released tapes and CD-Rs, as well as stuff out on Night People, Moist Tapes, Not Not Fun, and Detrivore.
