Fukkeduk — Ornithozozy
(Lowland LOW003, 1994, CD)

Well the name may cost this group some listeners, but I guess it could be said that anything in the Art Zoyd / Univers Zero axis may do the same anyway! Fukkeduk sure aren't shooting to be popular anyway and seem to be as adventurous and modern/20th century classical sounding as their progenitors. A dose of Henry Cow does remove the band's music from a more serious aesthetic and the result is closer to rock than the bands previously mentioned. This gives the music an approach somewhat similar to groups like Debile Menthol or Etron Fou; but not in the same stylistic universe, as the instrumentation employs brass and strings quite heavily. The presence of Nick Didkovsky as producer should give away most of the secret, this would fit comfortably on the Cuneiform label, although not quite up to the quality implied by these associations.
