In recent years, Kuker was credited with rejuvenating the rural studio outpost where early '90s alternative classics like Nirvana's In Utero were recorded. Prior to purchasing the studio out of foreclosure in 2011, his energies were focused on operating Seedy Underbelly in Minneapolis. After he was evicted by the building's owner to make room for an apartment complex, the studio later expanded to New York and Los Angeles.
