Long before he was blowing up dancefloors and headphones
as a solo artist and with Erykah Badu and Flying
Lotus, Steve “Thundercat” Bruner was a young punk
who succeeded Robert Trujillo in Suicidal Tendencies and spent nine years on
the road with this iconic crew of hard-groovin’ L.A. mosh-pit kings. On Suicidal’s
first album in 12 years, Bruner masterfully integrates his trademark
32nd-note flurries and evocative chords while laying it down as if he had been
born to thrash.
