Freddy (of Dunedin, New Zealand)has been playing his style of “Alt. Country” in venues for around a year but countless ‘wee small’ hours over the past half decade or so have given him a deep reservoir of lyrical and musical material.
Not wanting to fit into the “mature” or “adulterated” areas of acoustic performance he tends to prefer a boozy crowd of people having as much fun as he is than a serious, “click your fingers in appreciation for the tortured artist” type audience.
An eclectic mix of influences can be noted: Johnny Cash, Gillian Welch, Tom Waits, Mark Lanegan and a whole galaxy of Punk, Metal and Rock n’ roll music. Hence song names such as “I Love Slayer” and Smells Like Teen Binge Drinkin’”.
The glossy, overheated thumping of sexuality in our culture is less about connection than consumption. ‘Hot’ means fuckable and sellable. Stop talking trash about Paris Hilton and create your own sexual identity…

Freddy Fudd Pucker is a white male with a guitar. He writes and sings songs. He thinks he’s way better at it than he is… Sound familiar?

-In 2006 he put out a full length solo album, full of songs of booze, sex, and other favourite and greasy teenage past times.

-In 2008 he released an EP in a bag with a condom full of somewhat similar themes.

-FILTH STANDING ON A SOAP BOX, his 2nd full length is now being toured around the USA, then Europe, then back to New Zealand for the endless summer…

All of his CDs are avilable fom his shows, self respecting CD stores in Aotearoa and if you get in touch with him via myface or email. DIY…

He’s played in Stewart Island, at the bottom of the world. He’s played in Stockholm, near the top. If you like his music, ask him to play in your hood ‘cos its all bout sharing and he’ll try to get to you…

2008 was the UN International Year of the Potato… Just thought you should know…
