April 27, 2022

Please welcome SKERIK, Seattle's inimitable master of saxophone skronk, to Episode 056 of *The Upful LIFE Podcast. Brilliant on both tenor and baritone saxophone,  most often mixing in electronics, effects, and loops, Skerik is nothing short of a pioneer in saxophonics.

  • 3:15 - Introducing Skerik
  • 9:30 - Skerik interview

Co-founder of Critters Buggin, Garage a Trois, Tuatara, DRKWAV, and Skerik’s Syncopated Taint Septet. He is also an original member of both Les Claypool’s Fancy Band and Fearless Flying Frog Brigade. Skerik has worked extensively with Stanton Moore (drummer-Galactic) and Charlie Hunter (8-string guitar) across numerous collabs, including Bastard Jazz, Emerald Quintet, plus Omaha Diner, Coalition of the Willing. His list of projects and peers is far too long for a podcast synopsis! Skerik is a son of Seattle through and through, even briefly working with grunge super-band Mad Season. We touch on a number of these topics in this wide-ranging conversation
