Stick Men is a rock trio like no other. Playing instruments not seen or heard every day, and writing captivating, challenging music, they embody the tradition of progressive rock.
Stick Men is created from musicians with extensive experience playing together. Pat Mastelotto and Tony Levin are the rhythm section of the legendary band King Crimson. Mastelotto is in demand all over the world as the premier drummer for progressive rock. Levin plays an unusual instrument — the 12 string Chapman Stick — in Crimson, with Peter Gabriel and others. Markus Reuter is a composer/guitarist who designs and plays his own unique touch style guitar. With all these unusual instruments, this does not sound like three guys!
Their newest and best work yet, DEEP features heavy rock pieces “Concussion”, “Horatio”, the 11 min. tone poem “Whale Watch” and the musically amusing “Nude Descending Staircase.” Mixed by Machine (producer for King Crimson, Clutch, Lamb of God), this is a must have for King Crimson and Progressive Rock fans.
