Baby Tuckoo was an English hard rock band, formed in Bradford, West Yorkshire, England in 1982. Their name is taken from the James Joyce novel A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man.[1] They were generally considered a part of the new wave of British heavy metal.

They released two albums with Rob Armitage (vocals), Neil Saxton (guitar), Andy Barrott (keyboards), Paul Smith (bass) and Tony Sugden (drums).[2] Prior to their recording career, Steve Holton (vocals) and Andy Tidswell (keyboards) were in the band.[3]

Armitage left to join Accept in 1987, but was replaced by the American David Reece in 1988 without having taken part in any releases from the band.[4] He later joined the UK outfit Jagged Edge, and founded a band named Passion.
