Bassist Jake Desmarais comments on the album:
“We decided to track the record ourselves to make it as least stressful as possible. It was the first time Sarah was really recording a lot of guitar and not having the pressure of a limited amount of studio time made it a lot easier to be relaxed. It ended up being a really good decision since Sarah broke her hand the day we finished drums and we had to take a 2 month hiatus anyway. We did the rest of the record piecemeal in my apartment after work every day. We grouped the songs together that have similar tones to try and make the record more cohesive sounding. It was difficult having such a large break in the middle and I think we would have all prefered to do the record in a much shorter span of time, but we’re all happy with how it came out and in the end you’d never know.”
Fucko is an alternative-pop band from Boston, MA. Made up of siblings Sarah and Jacob Desmarais, Fucko was formed in fall of 2013 in Manchester, New Hampshire with friend David Solender. After releasing a 3-song demo, Fucko began playing shows in the spring of 2014. In early 2015 Fucko began work on recording their first full-length album entitled Dealing with the Weird. After recording was completed, David Solender left the band in May 2015 and Sneeze guitarist Derek Desharnais joined the group shortly after.
Taking queues from Black Tambourine, Nirvana, That Dog, Tiger Trap and The Breeders, Fucko’s sound is driven, simple and reminiscent of the early-90s alt-rock era. They’re looking forward to a busy 2016 with release of their album on Black Numbers and subsequent tours along the East Coast.
