Sludgebucket is a stoner metal duo consisting of Kelly Waldrip (bass/vocals) and Marc Kaufman (drums). Formed in Oakland in 2004 by Kelly Waldrip with the idea to take the vibe of 60s and 70s psychedelic heavy blues rock, early doom bands and fuse it with progressive, punk, metal, and sludge.
Their self-titled debut CD was recorded and released in 2007, offering a heavy mix of sludgy fuzzed guitar, winding bass lines, pounding drums, and howling vocals all tied together through flowing odd meters. Through the years they played clubs and continued to write and record music until the tragic passing of guitarist and collaborator John Robert Santos in March 2009. Sludgebucket reemerged in late 2009 and to this day continues to rehearse, record, and perform in the East Bay Area, California.
