    Saw LC open for Armored Saint and Wrathchild America at Hammerjacks in Baltimore, MD way back when. Great band!

    Sad news...

    Ex-White Zombie/Last Crack drummer Phil Buerstatte was found dead this past weekend in Madison, WI. No further details have been made available on his death. Buerstatte‘s ex-Last Crack bandmate Paul Schluter commented on his passing:

    “We are sorry to have to announce that Last Crack drummer and our musical brother Phil Buerstatte has passed away today. He will be greatly missed by his many friends, family and fellow band members. Pull out your Last Crack albums, crank them up loud and remember what a great drummer he was!

    It is the end of an era for us and sad to say the original lineup will never be able to play together again. Our last show with Phil from 2009 is posted on YouTube in its entirety. The remaining members of the band are discussing doing a tribute show in Phil‘s honor in the coming months. We’ll post details here soon.”

    Though he wasn’t featured on their albums, Buerstatte notably toured with White Zombie from 1992-1994.

    I love this band, and I never thought they got the credit they deserved or put out enough material.
    It is sad to hear this, R>I>P brother.

    This is sad news. I just listened to Sinister Funkhouse on Friday, too. :(
