SEEKINGViolin, Keyboard, Vocalist - Alto.
'...Pegged down somewhere between Tom Waits and an AOR-tinged Nick Cave, the sound of Robbie Jalapeno & The Bureaucrats is the sound of a dingy cellar café at midnight, glass of rouge in hand, smoke trailing around the stage. It's rough, angular and dirty, and it rides on the timeless cool of countless lounge acts of the past...'

Ode to P Dutts Nuts
Ode to P Dutts NutsAn ironic spin on the negative and divisive rhetoric employed by the alt-right, reactionary nobs who don't understand the world is bigger than they are!
Alone AloneAlone Alone. The title says it all - loneliness. The band however take a dip into pool-cleaner funk with all the verve and gusto of a first timer on a fake screen test ...
The Revelator Song
The Revelator SongA rampant verse, questioning why we continually worship false prophets and leaders ....
Come Back Helen
Come Back HelenA mixture of Greek tragedy and toxic male pathos.

Robbie jalapeno & the bureaucrats-Old Baxter
Robbie jalapeno & the bureaucrats-Old BaxterA life unquestioned. Dreams unimagined. Lost lessons of fathers and mothers... Laid out in the style of an epic poem, with no chorus and the same, driving 16-bar pattern repeated throughout in 3/4 time, the song bleats the bland relentlessness of striving to achieve materialist goals for their own sake. Old Baxter is the latest release from the bureaucrats' forthcoming album 'Carmina de Nihil' (latin - 'Songs About Nothing') due out in 2013....
01 Far Horizons
01 Far HorizonsThis song is a song about the extinguishment of hope.It gives a pretty good example of the completely original and otherwise eclectic sounds of the WA-based ensemble 'robbie jalapeno & the fabulous band of faceless bureaucrats'...... (thebureaucratsmusic.com)
