BUNKS / Press

““Amidst the flashy dashy, bling bling materialist, candy coated I wanna be a thug hip hop, the BUNKS’ call to action couldn’t come at a better time. The hard hitting and crowd moving “Generica,” is a subtle lyrical tirade of hip-hop awareness. Laced with fiery socially conscious messages, banging bass lines, and revolutionary themes, the album is almost enough to single-handedly kill off closed-minded elitist cultures.””

“When a group is able to create something that is bigger than themselves it gives them lasting power and the ability to stick together through the ups and downs of a music career.””

““BUNKS puts a magnifying glass over the overlooked.””

But BUNKS tackles plenty of serious issues, such as the homogenization of American culture. No matter if you’re in Miami or Maine, “Every city looks the same, Wal-Mart, Starbucks, stores lined up in chains.” The artists touch on consumerism, chemical dependency, obesity, materialism and other social observations multiple times, and the themes tie the record together and let us know these guys are about more than making cool beats.”

Many churches in the Manchester area are supporting this program which is headed by Jan Henley (henleyjan@hotmail.com).

"It's our love song to the home we love so much," says Joshua Grosch (aka Gro).”
