Revive Music in part with The Jae B. Group & Le Poisson Rouge brought Thundercat to NYC on 11/8 for the Debut of his newest release The Golden Age of Apocalypse
Thundercat is a pseudonym of Stephen Bruner, a member of legendary thrash punks Suicidal Tendencies (since 16 years of age), a protégé of Steven Ellison (aka Flying Lotus), virtuoso bassist, composer, producer and singer.
Bruner has collaborated with many, including: a stint with German boy band No Curfew, jams with Snoop Dogg and Stanley Clarke.
“I do believe that hip-hop can be the new jazz, and I’m helping create that”, Bruner said in an interview to Bass Player, in 2008.
He is part of this new generation of jazz literate / hip-hop loving instrumentalists, who can play beyond traditional limits – a mutant jazz cat – and, that’s how ‘Thundercat’ (a monicker he chose), suits him well (even if it’s purely the result of an unhealthy cartoon addiction, dating back to childhood).
