Sergeant Buzfuz 'High Slang' out in the shops now

Sunday, 15 February 2009 11:54

The 4th Sergeant Buzfuz album is now in the shops. It’s called “High Slang” (BLANG 15). Available as CD and download. See blang reviews.

“Universally charming” (NME)

“ Dazzling...Referencing 1960s punk, psychedelia, German-rock, Irish folk, glam-rock and drone, Sergeant Buzfuz achieve a harmonious, chiming mash-up, sounding like none of the above. ‘High Slang’ should be the record which catapults the band out of the underground” (Aesthetica)

“Ceaselessly inventive...14 candidates for John Peel’s Festive Fifty (RIP)” (TimeOut)

“Buzfuz are a bloody riot” (Plan B)

“songs full of spirit, an album full of them” (Organ: Album Of The Week)

“Blending an awe inspiring instrumental with poetic and story-telling lyrics on each and every song its difficult to be even remotely bored by this band.” (Music-Zine)

“Sergeant Buzfuz definitely do whatever they like and they definitely have something to say. Endearing and compelling,” (Supersweet)

“Razor-sharp lyrical wit” (Alternative Ulster)

“The problem with dumbing down radio is that it means most people never to get hear bands like Sergeant Buzfuz.” (Fatea Magazine)

News soon of new releases from Milk Kan and David Cronenberg's Wife.
