Welcome to the world of funky rock 'n' roll artist Mutherpluckin' B.
Here you'll find my cover versions of music from video games, mostly the
8-bit Nintendo console, arranged and played on guitars, bass, keyboards,
drums and anything laying around the house. I'm inspired mostly by classic
'70s rock and funk, and I always strive to make my music dirty, funky and
I currently have three CDs out, entitled "8-Bit Democracy",
"Nintendosploitation", and "Sex, Drugs and Nintendo". So go ahead and
download or buy my records and feel free to comment as you like.

What do you want to hear live?
I've now got a band of musicians who are currently putting together a
first live set and we're hoping to do our live debut in Uppsala, Sweden, in December this year
or maybe January 2010. Even if you live far away and won't be able to see us
unless we go on a world tour, I'll post audio and video recordings of our
performances, so you'll definitely be able to follow us.
Now I would love to receive your suggestions for what songs you want us to
play! No promises we'll see what actually works but we'll
consider all your wishes. I might also do studio recordings
of your suggestions, who knows.
