Science Faxtion will have its Living On Another Frequency debut released by Mascot Records on October 28. The supergroup combines bassist
Bootsy Collins-who, with James Brown in the 1960s and Parliament-Funkadelic in
the 1970s, set the course of modern funk-with guitarist Buckethead (Guns N’
Roses, Iggy Pop, Mike Patton, Les Claypool, Bernie Worrell, Serj Tankian, Tony
Williams and Bill Laswell), drummer Brain (Primus, Tom Waits, Godflesh), and
producer/singer/songwriter/guitarist Greg Hampton (Alice Cooper/Ron Wood, Rick
Derringer, The Tubes, Jack Casady featuring Ivan Neville & Gov’t Mule,
Jorma Kaukenon, Little Feat).


The CD features an all-star cast, including contributions from rapper Chuck D
of Public Enemy, Bernie Worrell and others. Although Hampton produced, sang lead, composed and
played guitar on Living On Another Frequency, he also plays bass, drums,
keyboards and percussion, and has performed every genre of music in his
wide-ranging career from funk, hard rock, metal and pop to country.

“Originally, it was Bootsy,” said Hampton,
in a statement. “We were going to be referencing more of his oldschool and
historical funk elements that we all grew up with. Then he had the epiphany of
us doing a group project, having me sing and play guitar, and bringing in
Buckethead and Brain. And DJ Botieus does a lot of programming. He’s definitely
a secret weapon.”

Added Hampton,
as a teaser, “It’s like Audioslave-meets-Nine Inch Nails.”



Well, all right then!
