Fuck Vinyl, CD & tapes from this artist at Norman Records
After knocking out 8 albums between 1994 and 2003, Oakland, California indie rockers, Fuck seemed to disappear. 15 years later they return with ...The Band, an album title you’d have expected them to use earlier in their career. In fact, they haven’t plundered the obvious album title mine (eg: You, Off, Up) in their previous efforts at all. Perhaps they have returned to right this wrong. Also, reports suggest they’ve just made the best album of their career. LP and CD on Vampire Blues.
They totally panicked on their name and went for the word that best described their conundrum, but fuck's music is far more intuitive, delving into indie rock both melancholy and winking with sweet, Americana inspired melodies and embellishing arrangements. Baby Loves a Funny Bunny, also a weird name, is their second record and embraces the convoluted world it's been spawned from.
fuck, a difficult band to google, were a premium example of slowcorey slackery American indie rock when they recorded Pretty… Slow in 1996. The songs sound like they needed some real encouragement to get out of bed this morning, but it’s a wonderful thing that they did: plenty of low-key majesty and minimal beauty here. This is the first time Pretty… Slow has been released on vinyl.
