Captain Rich

Korkusian Saxophone

Born during a collision of comets, no wonder he likes metal objects. Communicates with Korkus through his saxophone when he's not busy running the Bureau of Lost and Found. Fastest spaceship pilot in the universe, otherwise no known talents.

Mr. Takaway

Interstellarian Guitar

Country boy, self proclaimed astrologist from the backwoods of Bayou. Decoded the message contained in the Golden Record after several decades, on a pilgrimage to rock'n'roll upon hearing the phonograph record sent by NASA. Recovering balsamicoholic.

Fleischer Doria

Wormhole Bass

Chief scientist. There are no such thing as unknown scientific discovery to this man. Enthusiastic about conducting various experiments on planet Earth. Only he knows how to operate Korkuphone in the galaxy.

Loken Sand

Bigbang Drums

Messenger of the Almighty Korkus, when he wears the cape, turns into a Bayou priest. Received numerous complaints from neighboring planets for big banging his drums.

Four musicians from planet Bayou7 are enlightening the world with a new style of music so far unheard of on earth – the Spaceboogie!

From dead straight funk to soulful dance and bittersweet ballads, the album gives a raving and entertaining account of musical life on Bayou7 while taking the human listener on a musical trip to the hippest corners of the universe.

After first testing the music on enthusiastic European and African audiences in 2014, it was decided by Korkus* to expose all humans to the musical depths of Bayou7.

The studio of Commander Fux** in Berlin served as the perfect environment for the band to record the entire album live – no overdubs – no cheating – just raw music. The Swiss label Unit Records has been chosen as the perfect partner to spread Bayou7 culture amongst earthlings.

The energy captured on this recording may very well be classified as a milestone in authenticity and musical bravery. Travel agents might find it challenging to book a trip to Bayou7 in order to hear this truly galactic music at its very origin. Fortunately for everyone, The BootyJive plans to continue inspiring earthlings by performing their exhilarating live show at many venues across the planet.

* Korkus: Spiritual Guide of all Bayounians and founder of Bayou7
** Commander Fux: Bayou7 name of Ralph Graessler, the first human to study Bayou7 culture


  1. "Papa Hooch"
  2. It is known that, when Korkus finally turned back into his original form, his humble servant Hooch took care of these four orphans. No man has ever laid eyes on Hooch, but there is no doubt as to his existence.

  3. "Nebula"
  4. A natural wonder of the Bayou-System - the meteor shower of Parudim reflecting the early sun rays of the two bayounian suns.

  5. "Brown Is The Color Of My Dancin' Shoes"
  6. Dancing is an innate skill on Bayou7. Korkus, also called "The Stepper", used his legendary brown dancing shoes to create the incredibly advanced step-combinations that define Spaceboogie.

  7. "Swampty Dumpty (and some rubbin')"
  8. The swamps of Mississippi were the first terrestial impressions for the BootyJive crew. Captain Rich is always eager to present to his crew a pretty view while crash landing the ship on a new planet.

  9. "Schmooze Me (You Make Me Woozy)"
  10. As ultra-terrestial as The BootyJive crew maybe, they still want to schmooze with you.
