Buck and Kinch

I only got as far as the first sentence in James Joyce’s Ulysses, but that was far enough to meet “Buck” Mulligan, the namesake of Cape Breton grit-folk duo Buck and Kinch.

The website I made for Hinson and Merlin (not sure whom is Buck and whom Kinch) invites you to galk at the pair, inflict their music upon yourself, even do both at the same time. And maybe – just maybe – do both at the same time in real life.

“Kinch” is one of Buck’s nicknames for Stephen Dedalus, Joyce’s alterego whom we meet earlier in A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man (which I have read!).
