“Joshua Burkett is one of the rock’s of the New England rock
underground. He got his start in the Bimbo Shrineheads at just 16 years
old, playing bass and saxophone. Burkett later played sax and served as
cover artist for Vermonster, Wayne Rogers and Kate Biggar’s outlet
before Major Stars. Beginning in the mid 1990s, he released solo
material on his own Feather One’s Nest label, including the masterpiece
Gold Cosmos, which featured both Ben Chasny of Six Organs of Admittance
and Pat Gubler of P.G. Six. Spirit of Orr Records recently reissued Owls
Leaves Rustling, Burkett’s 1995 solo debut, along with testimonies from
Thurston Moore, Chris Corsano and Wolf Eyes’ John Olson.” – Dusted Magazine
