Freddy Fudd Pucker (Tom Young) is originally from a small city at the edge of the earth called Dunedin, New Zealand. However, he has spent the last five years or so touring the world, playing hundreds of shows across Australasia, the USA and Europe. The last two years have seen him based in Berlin, Germany, focusing on a nearly constant European tour schedule. Freddy looks at touring as a way of cultivating not only a growing and loyal fan base but the very experiences and characters that make up his songs.
A one-boy-band of sorts, his live show consists of a guitar, banjo, distorted loops and samples, a suitcase bass-drum on one foot, a tambourine on the other and the howl of someone that refuses to grow into what he considers an ugly, modern idea of adulthood. With these tools he performs intensely lyrical songs wrapped in extremely fast rhythms and melodies.
Blood Diamond Mind is the first single from his new album due for release later int he year and is available as a free download from our SoundCloud page: https://soundcloud.com/monk...
