Fuck Buttons is a two-piece experimental group based in London, England.

Formed in late 2004 and signed to the ATP label, releasing the “Bright Tomorrow” b/w “Little Bloody Shoulder” 7” single during the fall of 2007. They released their first album, Street Horrrsing, in 2008 and received widespread acclaim. A single, “Colours Move”, followed later that year.

Their second album ‘Tarot Sport' was released October 12th (UK) / October 20th (USA) 2009.

“The album, ‘Tarot Sport', is one of unbound possibility and lucid cohesion; a cerebral pilgrimage that refines, crafts, explores and develops the experimental aesthetic of last year's critically acclaimed debut, ‘Street Horrrsing.'”ATP

The duo's pioneering sound drew legendary DJ, producer and remixer Andrew Weatherall into the story - his own unique ethos inspired him to return behind the desk at the Rotters Golf Club Studio in London to capture a snapshot of two artists pushing forward into uncharted territories. As the band say, “There are so many more layers of sound that we needed somebody with the ability to spread these out over a wide plane… The ambition of sound in this record required him to realise it.”

The seven tracks on the album reflect a new-found complexity of sound that Fuck Buttons immersed themselves in, strived for and achieved with startling results.
