Freddy Fudd Pucker
Hurtling from the speakers like a scalded cat Freddy Fudd Pucker delivers music of momentum. A scathing lyric pulls no punches as it casts a wary eye on the world around, whilst the instrumentation is of equal consideration. Combining string strumming that can only but lead to RSI, along with toe-tapping percussion, whilst adding distorted samples and loops gives the out-put its intrigue.
Although predominately played at breakneck speed, Freddy Fudd Pucker provides compositions of developing melodies and when slower tracks appear, these touches are highlighted.
It is of little surprise that Freddy Fudd Pucker is a constant feature on the road in both the Northern and Southern Hemispheres, where the music is best suited because of the instant connectivity with the audience. That isn’t to say this can’t be enjoyed at home, but it works best with a group as despite the visceral nature, the listener can’t help but get up on their feet and want to join in with a mass dance and party the night away.
Despite the continual live performances Freddy Fudd Pucker does still manage to find time for recording and a new LP is scheduled for release later this year. From the forthcoming album is Blood Diamond Mind, that surfaced a few hours ago.
