Whither Okka?

6 posts in this topic

I know that the Okka catalogue is now distributed by Atavistic, but the Okka site itself has been down for a while and I wonder if they are still in business. Anybody know anything? Have I missed something?

Hi David,

I noticed the same thing. I don’t think atavistic carries all Okka’s titles, just Vandermark and Brotzmann releases. The site’s been down for about a week and email to info@okkadisk goes unanswered (I just finished posting a similar question to yours on another site before remembering that Chuck knows Bruno to one degree or another). Chuck, do you know what's up with Bruno?

P.S. and a big thanks to Chuck for introducing me to Okka’s catalog!

I'd love to hear what's up with Bruno nowadays!

We worked together when I was manager of a record store

in Chicago. Really great (and funny!) guy who always was in search of new sounds!

I thought I had heard that he'd moved out of Illinois - Michigan or Wisconsin perhaps?

Wonder if he still has his Einstürzende Neubaten tattoo...

First - Okka and Atavistic have always swapped cds to sell on their respective sites.

Second - the Okka site was working about a week ago when I last visited.

Third - I received an email from Bruno on the 10th of April.

Fourth - if you need some Okkas, I can supply them too.

Rod, Bruno bought a bar in Milwaukee a couple years back and now lives there.

Thanks Chuck!

Please give him my best regards next time you guys talk.

I was happy that he had his own label

because he often had good, eclectic taste in music.

(tho it was quite a while before I found out that it was actually his!) label. :D

That seems to just about cover it...! Thank you!
