Description

2010, Taking their unusual name from Irish writer James Joyce's book 'A Portrait Of The Artist As A Young Man', Bradford, UK based Baby Tuckoo first saw the light of day in 1982, the line-up of vocalist Rob Armitage, Neil Saxton on guitar, ex Heritage / Geddes Axe man Andy Barrott on guitar, bassist Paul Smith and drummer Tony Sugden releasing two hard rocking but surprisingly melodic albums in 1984's 'First Born' for the Ultranoise label and then the disc you now hold, 1985's 'Force Majeure'. Originally released on UK indie Music For Nations, this album would prove to be the band's swan song. 'Force Majeure' is a fine record that shows the band had the skills to pay the bills in no uncertain terms. They deserve more than their current standing as a 'could have been' act, and hopefully this reissue will go some way towards correcting that state of affairs once and for all.
