Description:

One of 2006's best reviewed debuts, Bucko was hailed as a 'blistering mix of petulant tantrum-rock, throbbing rhythms, dark intent and off-kilter time signatures' by Rock Sound in their album of the month write-up, with Kerrang describing the band likened to 'early Idlewild mixed with prime Fugazi, a rockin' melange of angular riffage and rage that's tempered by nagging, eccentric hooks'.

Contains the singles 'Kittens Got Claws' and 'Just Like I Got Used To Saying Courteney Cox Arquette'.

Additional Information:

"My favourite record in the STA discog; military precision math-emo which recalls Fugazi, American Football and Drive Like Jehu. Awesome!" - Andrew Ferris

Press:

Metal Hammer: "Fickle Public are unafraid of poppy hooks, and yet each song is ingrained with a 'fuck you' attitude that shows the band is playing by no one's rules but their own, as songs meander off on unexpected tangents, like 'Kittens Got Claws', rife with odd time signatures, huge roars and a monster riff. This is what we want from British bands, loads of energy, hefty grit, bundles of excitement and truly great tunes - and newcomers Fickle Public have all - by the bucketload." 8/10

Drowned In Sound: "Regular gigging alongside commercial successes hasn’t led to a compromising of this quartet’s unparalleled bi-polar on-record personality: mercilessly jagged meets plateau smooth, mighty foam-topped waves crash into plain sailing seas of shimmering turquoise. Awesome. Brilliant." 8/10

NME: "There are a few things you can pretty much guarantee from a band who choose to open an album with a math-pop puzzle called 'Just Like I Got Used To Saying Courteney Cox Arquette'. Three of them aren't hummable choruses, big laughs or many friends. But Glasgow post-hardcore trio [sic] Fickle Public are nothing if not a minor angst-punk miracle. 'Bucko' might not secure them a slot on the next Kaisers tour, but at least 'Five Four To The Floor' and 'Another Exit Ruined By Stairfalling' prove that brains, time signatures and the late 80's scene can work with a sense of humour too." 7/10
