System of a Down singer Serj Tankian and Jimmy Urine of Mindless Self Indulgence have recently joined forces for a new project Fuktronic.
"We're still in the process of figuring out what it's going to be, as opposed to just a record" Jimmy told Artisan News. "It lends itself to - we basically went backwards and started writing soundtrack music and then we decided to put some vocals on it and then we decided that the vocals should be almost as if they were clips from a movie and then like a movie that didn't exist.
"And at the time Serj's been on a binge of watching English gangster films so then I did some stuff and then we wrote some [material]," Urine continued. "And we got some friends involved to do all the sounds and everything, I mean to do all the vocals and spoken words and it's kind of become this - it's as if you wrote a soundtrack and ended up with a movie, it's that kind of thing."
At Tankian's official website, Fuktronic is described as "the team of Serj Tankian and Jimmy Urine from Mindless Self Indulgence, making a soundtrack for the ultimate British Gangster Film. It's an electronic album with 12 tracks (4 instrumental and 8 tracks that have original scripted dialogue that portrays the trials and tribulations of a fresh out of prison British gangster who hasn't learned his lesson)."
