Who Is Houston's Mysterious FLCON FCKER?

Big and far-flung and ever-changing as Houston is, sometimes the names who show up in the Houston Press Music Awards nominations every year surprise even us. This is not a bad thing at all: Within the music scene (which continues to amaze us in its ingenuity and diversity), it keeps the circle of life going, and certainly keeps us on our toes.

That's how Rocks Off came to make the electronic acquaintance of the artist who goes by FLCON FCKER, a 2012 nominee for Best Electronic Act. This gentleman, whom we'll leave as FLCON FCKER because his Web site and social-media pages do the same thing, contacted us to let us know we had originally omitted the "O" in FLCON.

Oops. It's since been corrected, of course, but even he admits via email "as you can imagine, it happens a lot -- perhaps it wasn't the best name choice in retrospect lol."

KEEP THE HOUSTON PRESS FREE... Since we started the Houston Press, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Houston, and we'd like to keep it that way. With local media under siege, it's more important than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" program, allowing us to keep offering readers access to our incisive coverage of local news, food and culture with no paywalls.
