i have been doing my hombework about buckethead i and found that the album Super Diorama Theater was never realeased and i wanted to ask maybe Travis could answer why was it never released?

Also if Buckethead i planning on playing outside the US in some moment?
He works on the farm,
He makes fun of me,
But thats the lats thing youll see,
Cuz im gone use him for something that you wont understand

Spinal Clock #199
Holiday Album


While there are no known facts about this album, I will speculate about it.

It was to be released by Catalyst Entertainment (who released Bermuda Triangle). There were postcards sent out advertsing Bermuda Triangle along with the upcoming Super Diarama Theatre and the Secret Recipe DVD. Whilst I can\'t remeber the exact timeline, but the DVD took well over a year after that to come out and even then it was with some difficulty.

I beleive that Super Diarama Theatre was caught up with this. I haven\'t heard anything about Catalyst the company but perhaps they had financial troubles or something similar which affected the release of SDT and SR.

There was some conjecture as to SDT being \'turned into\' "The Cuckoo Clocks From Hell" as the sample track from SDT (which was released on the internet) ended up being released on CCFH as "Moths To Flame".

My opinion is that sure, some tracks may have been used on CCFH but it isn\'t the same album and simply relabeled. SDT was advertised as featuring Bill Laswell, Gigi, Pete Scaturro, and Extrakd - None of which feature on CCFH. I too wonder what happend... especiially as I loved Buckeheads work with Extrakd


If I remember correctly, there was an announcement on Bucketheadland that "Super Diorama Theater" was being retitled "The Cuckoo Clocks From Hell." Somewhere around here I have some promo Super Diorama Theater postcards. I\'ll have to find where I put them.
