Tony Buck (born 1962 in Sydney) is a drummer and percussionist.[1] He graduated from the New South Wales Conservatorium of Music (now Sydney Conservatorium of Music), becoming involved in the Australian jazz scene.

Buck played with Great White Noise during 1983 and is a founding member of The Necks with Chris Abrahams and Lloyd Swanton since 1987.[2][3] He is leader of Peril, who he formed in Japan with Otomo Yoshihide and Kato Hideki, and astroPeril. He also formed the short lived L'Beato in the early 1990s, an industrial-oriented outfit reminiscent of Tackhead, which released one EP "The Piston Song".

In the early 1990s, Buck moved from Australia to Amsterdam and later moved to Berlin, where he currently lives.

He formed the band Glacial with Lee Ranaldo and David Watson.. He has also worked with the French experimental guitarist Jean-Marc Montera.

Projekt Transmit was released in 2009, featuring 8 original songs written by Buck and one cover of "Masters of War" by Bob Dylan. A band was formed around this album consisting of Magda Mayas on keyboards, James Welburn on bass, Brendan Dougherty on drum set and Buck on guitar, vocals, drums and percussion.
