If you’ve kept your eyes off of HoZac’s archival series, then you’re missing out on some choice punk gems that have slipped through the cracks. They’ve found all manner of leather bound ephemera and packed them back on the wax for eager archivists and crate diggers alike. Their next project documents a barely-there notch in Midwest punk history. The 7” bounds up the sole recorded existence of F.U.K. (Fucked Up Kids), the duo of Roger Miller and Sue Rynski. Miller did time in Detroit’s Sproton Layer and was brother to Larry and Jim of Destroy All Monsters, but you may best remember him as holding down the strings in Mission of Burma. F.U.K. played one show and spit out two tracks before they slipped away, but thanks to general biz wiz and musical oracle Byron Coley those tracks are finding their way back to you via HoZac and company.
The A-side is a pure primitive corker, tough and twitchy and cracking its knuckles at the back of the room lookin’ for a fight. The track bashes out a low-slung rumble before barreling headlong through the quantum mist for a static n’ acid solo that’s begging to burn the place down. Its easy to see how this beast was too weird to live, but I’m damn glad that it was recorded for posterity. Gonna want to grip this one when it comes out later this month.
