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 other’s 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.

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.
