Year Of The Tiger
since 2006, f*cked up have been releasing an annual 12” single on each chinese new year.
named after the beasts of the chinese zodiac, the sprawling, 10-15 minute epics have been among the band’s most acclaimed material & were the 1st releases to expose them to non-punk audiences. ‘year of the tiger’ is an anthemic progressive rock masterpiece featuring guests jim jarmusch, annie-claude deschênes & austra. it was produced by shane stoneback during the sessions for last year’s critically acclaimed rock opera ‘david comes to life’. the 15-minute track features the band’s familiar layers of guitar & roaring vocals, taken to a new level with the addition of piano, jarmusch’s dark recitations & deschênes’ gorgeous crescendos. the b-side 'onno' is a 22-minute long palindromic drone.
