Buck 65 Celebrates 20 Odd Years In Music With First Ever Dvd: The Lost Tapes

20 Brand New Tracks Set To Be Released


For Immediate Release.

The year 2010 is a milestone in the life and career of Rich Terfry. It marks 20 years of the music, persona and genius of Buck 65. To commemorate such an achievement, Buck 65 is set to release his first ever DVD titled The Lost Tapes on Tuesday, June 8, 2010. Also, over the next five months, a series of four-song mini-albums will be released digitally culminating into a 20-song physical release in the fall. Buck 65 - 20 Odd Years: Volume 1 â avant will be included with the DVD as a bonus CD.

"The last twenty years of my life have been stranger and more amazing than I could have imagined. Hip hop glory and heartbreak! In 2010, I'll be taking a look back and forging ahead with 20 odd years." Buck 65

Loosely based on a true story, The Lost Tapes is a one hour film that hinges on the true-life theft of videotapes that were shamelessly stolen from a church during a Buck 65 show in April of 2008. It offers a fanâs perspective of Buck 65 behind the scenes and on stage during the Situation tour, featuring performances, interviews and skits by Buck 65, Paul âSkratch Bastidâ Murphy, Cadence Weapon and others. Behind the camera is award winning Canadian director, Christopher Mills.


The volumes of Buck 65 â 20 odd years will be Terfryâs first releases as Buck 65 since taking the job as host for CBC Radio 2âs Daily Show, Drive. It will feature multiple guest performances including Gord Downie, Jenn Grant, Meaghan Smith, John Southworth, Gentleman Reg and many other notable names. The track listing for volume 1 is:

Buck 65 - 20 odd years: volume 1 - avant
1 gee whiz (w/ nick thorburn)
2 who by fire (w/ jenn grant)
3 superstars don't love (w/ jorun)

Finally, in addition to celebrating 20 years of Buck 65 with The Lost Tapes DVD and the 20 songs on the five volumes of Buck 65 â 20 odd years, a series of intimate live events in the fall are currently being planned in 20 countries around the globe. More to be announced in the coming months.
