About

 

In early 2000 Tucker recorded a solo self-titled album of acoustic finger-picking, experimental electronics, field recordings and spooked vocals, which was picked up by Tom Greenwood of Jackie-O-Motherfucker and released under his U-Sound Archives label.

Tuckers' ability to combine compositional song structures, drones, layered vocals and improvisations culminated on his 2005 album "Old Fog" (ATP/R), a collection of spectral moods, eerie landscapes and fragile emotions.

His commanding live performance has led to collaborations which include working with Stephen O'Malley (SunnO))), Khanate) on his Ginnungagap side project (Southern Records limited Latitudes series), providing the soundtrack to Lali Chetwynd's performance piece at Tate Britain and playing as a part of JOMF, Duke Garwood, and Little Wet Horse.


Tucker's second studio album "Furrowed Brow" (ATP/R) was recorded in his home county of deepest darkest Kent. For this new recording Tucker combined harmonised vocal patterns, layered instrumentation and heavy sonic bliss riffs to create a cross-between David Crosby, doom metal and Terry Riley. It was released in November 2006.
