Crime Slunk Scene is the eighteenth studio album by Buckethead, and the fourth tour-only album. It was originally only sold on his 2006 tour, but was later made available on Travis Dickerson's record label TDRS music, until it eventually went out of print. The track "Soothsayer" has become one of Buckethead's more popular songs, and is very frequently played live.
The demand for the album was still very high, and eventually Travis Dickerson decided to attempt a re-pressing of the disc. However, as future projects took up a lot of time, fans were asked to pre-order the re-pressing of Crime Slunk Scene, with no set date for when the album would be re-released. When the pre-orders got to a certain amount, the re-pressing of the album was approved. Eventually, the album has been re-pressed on Apr 12 2007. By February 2012, the album once again went out of print, and has yet to be repressed.
Track 1, "King James", is dedicated to basketball player LeBron James.
Track 2, "Gory Head Stump 2006: The Pageant of the Slunks", is a reprise of the song "Hook & Pole Gang" which can be found on Bucketheadland.
Track 6, "Soothsayer (Dedicated to Aunt Suzie)", is available as part of a downloadable track pack for the game Guitar Hero III: Legends of Rock on the 24th of July. It is also played very frequently in Buckethead's concerts.
An image of P-Sticks, Buckethead's touring roadie, can be seen on the disc.
