“Tuco is the type of monumental leap that defines a band’s legacy. Forward thinking, massive in scope and success, focused and poignant; the imagery, big cars, West Coast sun, strip malls, and isolation- with themes of open road and heartache. Subtly and confidently, Tuco changes the landscape of Canadiana.”
HEROHILL, Canada, November 2011

“Retro Americana mixed with a little indie-rock- built for cruising and not for speed, Ox construct lazy aimless journeys realising that the search is the very thing being searched for. Ox is a consistent performer; his records never really travel far from his basic premise, the mythology of cars and girls, rock and roll, wide open spaces and Neil Young. His skill is that the template doesn’t seem at all limiting, he has endless variations and when the results are like ‘Trans Canada’ I’m always going to be happy to be along for the ride even if I might get into trouble.”
David Cowling, AMERICANA UK, November 2011

“tUCo’s sound is sometimes sparse and lonely, at other times full of textures; the open road, rock and roll rebels, and freedom. tUCo is something special, and something very different. If we were still allowed to speak in such archaic terms, it is more alt. than country. It is an album whose spirit is as important as its sounds, and what sounds they are. Highly recommended.”
FERVOR COULEE, Canada, NOVEMBER 2011

This upload version of tUCo is made from WAV files ripped from the actual VINYL master of the record as opposed to the CD master. We still recommend you buy the actual physical vinyl for the best possible listening experience!

about

Ox Sudbury, Ontario

Seminal Canadian ‘alt-country’ group, Ox began in the confines of a D.O.A. built Vancouver studio in early 2002. Ten years, 5 albums, and countless international tours later they remain one of Canada’s most timeless college radio successes- with each release cracking the Canadian national charts top 5. Ox is the sound of gravel skimming fender crossed by overdriven tubes and tremolo. ... more
