'tUCo' (album stream)
The album works as a soundtrack for a film that never ended up getting made. Filmmaker John Milne described the cinematic project as "a '70s buddy movie channelling Keith Carradine and Dennis Hopper. The band is Tuco, and they're imploding."
So, Ox set to work writing and recording the music for the film and the result is tUCO, a soundtrack to a film that never came to fruition.
The LP kicks off with a cover of Neil Young's "Out on the Weekend," and is followed by 13 tracks, including the first single "What I Like About Cars." Along the way, guests such as Fred Squire, Kate Maki and Nathan Lawr all lend a hand.
The stream of tUCo is below and you can check out the band's tour dates with Al Tuck and the Forest City Lovers here.
