Holy Bootzilla! New band with Bootsy and Brain

Good news for Bucketbots: Buckethead is in a new band called Science Faction with Brain, Bootsy, DJ Botieus, and producer/guitarist Greg Hampton. I don't know anything about DJ Botikeus or Greg Hampton (see his MySpace page) yet, but anything with the three B's is going to be great. They're supposed to have an album out next year and follow it with a tour. Yes, a TOUR! Man, I hope that's true.

You should read the whole Billboard article, but here's a great Bootsy quote from it:

"We're looking at it like, 'What would happen if we wound up a situation down the line as we evolve, that our technology takes over and we are the ones that they're looking at as 'the scum of the earth'," Collins tells "It's kind of like 'Planet of the Apes.' What would they be like? What would that feel like? We're just trying to warn the world that that's comin', and we're having fun with that."

Oh. My. God.
