Death Cube K

Death Cube K is both a Franz Kafka-themed bar in William Gibson‘s novel Idoru and the anagram of Buckethead – the stage name of one of the greatest and most surreal guitarists alive.

Known for his guitar-shredding abilities (which earned him stints with Guns’n Roses), his obsession which chicken, themeparks and robots, his remarkable attire, which involves a white mask and a KFC bucket, his onstage use of nunchaku whilst soloing on his guitar, his allround excentric but cult-inducing persona and his wide list of remarkable collaborations (Bill Laswell, Les Claypool, Viggo Mortensen and many wonderful others), Buckethead records his dark ambient projects under the moniker Death Cube K (originally a ploy to avoid record company contractual strictures).
