181 / Cuckoo Spit: Sweet Tooth

Dreamy, saccharine vocals clash with socially acerbic lyrics in this misanthropic single written especially for the Holiday Season.

153 / Cuckoo Spit: Daisy Chain

What’s Christmas without a Christmas single? Cuckoo Spit and Katarrhaktes bring you a frosty, tongue-in-cheek ditty inspired by a seasonal classic along with a bonus remix. Why is Sister Susie sitting on a thistle? Take a listen and find out!

149 / Cuckoo Spit: Scarlet Tina

With sweaty palms and a lump in your throat, you knock on her door. She’s beautiful. The curtains are drawn and the scent of perfumed candles is heavy in the air. You prepare yourself for the most perfect romantic evening with the girl of your dreams. Stare into each others eyes, tie each other up – but wait. This was supposed to be a home-cooked meal. Where’s the food? With a surge of panic as she tightens the final knot, you catch a flash of metal from the corner of your eye. Her expression twists with hysteria as she places the knife inside your cheek. “Smile”.

127 / Cuckoo Spit: Runaway

Some days, it seems as though the rain will last forever. Melancholy, somber, yet ultimately hopeful, Cuckoo Spit neurotically searches for colour in perpetually overcast landscapes. At the core of this EP is a cover of Avril Lavigne’s ‘Runaway’ remixed into a pounding ocean of gloom by industrial/ambient artist Katarrhaktes.

114 / V/A: Let Steeple Bells Be Swungen

Ho ho ho and a keg of mulled wine! Fwonk* rounds off 2013 with a candy-soaked compilation LP of icy beats and frosty ambience. Best enjoyed with a crate of dodgy liqueur and several dozen mince pies.

Concept, curation, and artwork by Katarrhaktes.

111 / V/A: The Legendary Swimsuit Issue

When at the beach on a glorious Summer’s day, the lovely lads and ladies at the fantastic Fwonk* studios promise they will never wear those sweaty speedos you most earnestly wish you hadn’t bought them for Christmas in jest. Nor will they torture you with terror-inducing spray-on tan lines or sandy crotch-paunches. Nope. Not now. Not ever. Our hands may be behind our backs, but that doesn’t mean our fingers are crossed.

Compiled, mastered and designed by Katarrhaktes.

109 / Cuckoo Spit: Salmon Custard

The bizarre Cuckoo Spit’s debut on Fwonk* is a twisted, bi-polar trip to a world smothered in rainbows and rotting entrails. Using only the manipulated human voice, the mini-album Salmon Custard is in flux between candy coated naivety and darkly humorous innuendo.
