HISTORICALLY FUCKED

Mancunian 4-piece fronted by Greta Buitike, who last appeared at TUSK as half of Bad@Maths with Elvin Brandhi. This quartet create short, eruptive songs that they then set about obliterating from the inside, like improvising a barrel to encase themselves in and then proceeding to kick their way out of it. The quartet is completed by 3 other Mancunian multi-taskers you may well be aware of (Otto Willberg, David Birchall and Alecs Pierce) and their album A End With Yeh at varying times brings to mind the very disparate approaches of both The Fall and the John Zorn-composed trio of Patton-Baron-Dunn, without really sounding like either of them. Historically Fucked can be funny, gleefully eruptive and very gratifyingly raucous and auto-destructive, heading off in numerous directions within a matter of seconds. Listen to their album and expect to have no idea what to expect.
