Band of brothers

By CHRIS CONTI  |  April 28, 2010

Of their untimely split some 15 years ago, bassist Tom Buckland clarified on film: “We didn’t break up, we just stopped playing. But I always knew we’d play again. And again and again and again.”
T-Buck offered thoughts on It’s a Bash! via email.

“I am humbled that Neutral Nation is at the center of this film. The shift in perspective is a little overwhelming, to be honest. I always got the biggest kick playing with these guys and they entertained me endlessly, and to see them in action from a different perspective makes me appreciate it even more.”

I asked T-Buck if he was ready to get back onstage with his band of brothers, in what should be one helluva 25th anniversary bash.

“I’m never not ready to play with the Nation. I look at these guys like brothers — it’s a family reunion I never want to miss. And it’s the best psychotherapy in the world.”
