Ju Suk Reet Meate

Eric Stewart was born in Covina, Calif in 1952, to a non-Musical family and began playing Trumpet (poorly) in 4th grade. Thanks to Gram-pa's Spike Jones 78's a Nonmusical Music seed was planted. After moving to Pasadena in 1972, with no further training ,'Artist' Ju Suk Reet Meate was born, and with a few friends started the "Band Without Musicians" SMEGMA in 1973. Worked with LAFMS, started Pigface Records after moving to Portland 1975, and put out, in tiny quantities with hand made covers, Legendary Smegma and Ju Suk Solo records. Sticking to an old school, 20th century Musical aesthetic he has recently taken his Slide Guitar, Pocket Trumpet, Electronics and toys to acclaimed performances in New York, Chicago, Cork, Paris, and in the UK.
