After winning the Best Jazz Album at the 1998 RIANZ Awards, Godfrey de Grut of The New Loungehead and fellow sax man Chris White (Rodger Fox Big Band), recorded a selection of five tracks in a jazzy, trip-hop vein under the alias of Buckle.
The Buckle project also called on the formidable skills of The New Loungehead bass player 'Chip' Mathews and Slumber beat technician Graham Cope, as well as a range of stellar musicians from the Auckland club circuit.
Much of the material on 'Cut Lips' is from the repertoire of Slumber - Godfrey de Grut's working band . Their EP 'Cut Lips' continues the journey started by Nathan Haines 'Shift Left' album with it's 'sneaky beats and twisted jazz flavours' blending into a sensuous and seamless soundtrack for the "inner city cafe lifestyle".
