Tuck Tuck Tuck was the name of artist Richard Aldrich’s solo music project, done between 1999 and 2001, with records released in 2002 and 2003 on his own Skul record label.  The Words of Tuck Tuck Tuck compiles exactly that: all use of printed language surrounding Tuck Tuck Tuck.  What is ostensibly a lyric book contains press releases, insert texts, and record reviews in addition to the lyrics.  The book mimics the concerns of Aldrich’s painting practice, objects that contain different tones, purposes, and functions collected together to create a larger and multi-faceted understanding of a body.
