Cosmic Butter is a combination of old school Soul and new age Retro-Futuristic,rhythmic,dance music. It's 1975, but like if '75 were actually the future, and the future is FUNKY.
Influenced by a lot of funk , rock, and RnB of the late 70's and early 80's. It is a mixture of all that blended with a southern twang and love of science fiction. It is truly a trip to behold.
Cosmic Butter was born out of a love of Funk and Soul music. Todd, Dave, and Barry combined forces in 2015 to form the band. The three of them have a long history of playing together, most recently as Cicada Omega. They grew up playing music together in Kentucky. After moving to Portland OR they began digging deeper into their personal roots, and that's when they dug up some of that thick sound they came to know as Cosmic Butter. An otherworldly blend of Lo-Fi, Sci-Fi, Southern Soul.
Indoctrinated in Funkadelic, Prince, James Brown and about anything with that get-down rhythm. Sprinkle in some classic Sci -Fi films, and the hollerings of southern madmen, and you have the spark that makes Cosmic Butter. It will get you up, free your soul, and keep you moving, can you dig it?
The band began with the three core members:
You have Dave Rue playing Drums, and Todd "The Governor " Pidcock on Bass.
The Reverend B.D.Winfield plays synth, while hollering (and dancing like a epileptic fit).
And now as of 2017, guitarist Pat McClimans has joined the group to make it a solid four piece!
The band is currently working on its first full length album and touring any and every place they can! Look for us and spread it on!
